However, they also have a free tips and tricks section which provides a decent selection of music production tutorials (aimed primarily at beginners), both as videos and PDFs.

The video section contains tutorials on such programs as Reason, Ableton Live, Garageband, FL Studio and Logic – as well as introductions to concepts such as EQ and compression.

If you’re new to the world of computer music production, then these guides may be helpful – about halfway through the above video, the use of portamento and arpeggiator functions are introduced, for example.

If you’re a Pro Tools user, there are plenty of tutorials out there for you as well. Audio Geek Zine have compiled a handy list of the best (and worst) Pro Tools Videos.

You can check out Record Ready’s batch of essential Pro Tools videos here.

If you’re a Pro Tools HD user, then you might find some useful insights over at Brent Heber’s blog – he also has a collection of tutorial videos for your delectation.
