BB: I started making music when I was 12 or 13 using the PlayStation, a game called "MUSIC". After this I quickly moved on to Cubase and a Yamaha RM1X (which I still regret selling!). I worked part time with music for many years but took a break when my university studies were done. I got back into it after a few years and then started my music production & synth focused YouTube channel "BoBeats".
YS; When did you start your YouTube channel?
BB: I started it in 2015 but I was overworked from many hours at two jobs (a university job and and as a psychotherapist) and wasn't very productive until about 2016. In 2017 I actually quit one of my jobs and started doing my Youtube channel part time.
YS: What type of information would you like to convey to subscribers of your channel?
BB: Someone said I bring a human side to a tech focused community. I guess that is a big driving factor. By being myself I hope to make equipment and techniques accessible. I sometimes pull from my psychology background when talking about a creative issue people are facing. I think this approach is what makes my channel unique.
YS: What do you like about MODX?
BB: I enjoy the synth architecture a lot! There is just so much depth, flexibility and functionality. I really enjoy the fact that I can slap an arp on just about everything, which makes me look cool when I demo it to my non-musician friends!
