Howdy Howdy, MOD Fam!
Seeing as 100% of my time is mine now, I am going to knuckle down on some videos to help with some MOD promotion while I’m re-establishing my blacksmithing business.
I do not have a big channel, less than 250 subs, and average about 25k-30k views a month. Youtube is not a source of income for me, nor is it my goal.
I am not a musician by any stretch of the means, I buy hardware and software for a few reasons.
1.) I’m partially deaf so sound is very interesting to me lol
2.) I love experimenting with technology
3.) Gives me an outlet for creativity
4.) Always wanted to get into music, but was too poor as a kid lol
Synths and MOD devices combine pretty much all of that into a fun, yet frustrating hobby.
Since I have the free time, I have begun setting up a recording area. I use one of my retired phones as a camera, its hooked up to a gimbal and attached to a tripod, like so:
And this is the view:
Obviously I have not included lighting yet (or a succulent), and that will improve.
The goal is to show the hardware itself and the screens. I plan on overlaying this onto a screen recording of the GUI. Ideally you’ll be able to watch any assignments pop up on the hardware as I make them in the GUI. I will also do a voice over rather than attempt to ramble my way through lol
However, I am curious as to what sort of videos we should be producing.
What would the community appreciate, and what do you think a potential customer would appreciate knowing about?
Things I will not be willing/unable to do:
1.) Demonstrate musical ability (ezpz)
2.) Guitar oriented plugins such as amps, cabs, and tone shapers.
3.) Advanced Midi/CV tutorials (maybe later)
Things I’d be interested in seeing as a synth enjoyer:
1.) Pedalboard creation (basic)
2.) Premium Plugin sound demos
3.) Midi to CV capability/use (MDX only)
4.) Effect chains using non premium plugins
5.) Basic Midi routing
6.) Comparison against multi-effect competitors
For plugins, I am reverb/chorus/delay/phaser/granular oriented in my uses, and I’ll largely focus on plugins in those categories as well as how I use my MOD units in my workflow.
Are there others in the community that would like to create content for the MOD channel?
If so, what sort of things would you like to create?
What would you have appreciated knowing more about before buying?
What made you choose a MOD unit over the competition, and are you happy with the choice?
Sorry for the list of questions, but I think the answers would be useful for deciding what to focus my time on lol
Hope all is well with you all!
Oh yeah, goes without saying, I am not affiliated with MOD other than being a consumer, I just like tinkering with gear and learning about video stuff.
