  • Hey Mike! Really cool video and I'm glad you're playing music, but you may want to learn some music theory while you're doing this so you know more about the keys and specifically major and minor keys. The last piece you played has the chords in a minor key but your melody over the top sounds to me like it's in a major key, which is kinda jarring. If you did it on purpose, cool; but if not, music theory is really fun and you can probably get an ABRSM theory book pretty easily. Congrats on making nice beats though!

  • Don't be fooled by how much the Circuit can do. What Mike showed you is the bare surface of making music. It's not half as easy as picking up one of those and bob's your uncle. It is, however, a great first step into experimenting with it. I recommend "legally" obtaining a DAW more as it's cheaper and if you're not into it, you can just uninstall it and not have an expensive piece of equipment laying around in your house that you're never gonna touch anyway.
