What makes Born To Produce different from other tutorial sites?
What a great question! Well, for starters we are very proud of our 'Start To Finish' tutorials where we take you from a complete blank canvas to a finished, polished, mixed and mastered complete track, in many different genres. Not many other sites offer this or the same level of detail! Also, we are genuine people who only want to help you. We offer honest support as much as we can and will never try to con you. We even respond to support queries on our evenings and weekends - that's how devoted we are! Try us out and you'll see why we have over 20,000 engaged users.
Do I need third party VST's like Nexus, Sylenth, Massive etc. to follow your courses?
The vast majority of Cubase courses at Born To Produce now only use Cubase stock plugins (some older ones like Trance use Nexus). We teach the fundamentals and principles of professional music production, not how to select a preset in Massive. Using a different synth could sound different to what you hear in the tutorial but this should not be seen as a barrier to learning, the whole point is to learn the key grounding skills and apply it to your own productions. Our FL Studio courses are the same where for the most part stock plugins are used.
Do I need the latest software of Cubase, FL Studio etc to follow your courses?
Recommended but not essential. You can use older versions of Cubase to follow along with the tutorials as the main focus is to learn the fundamentals of music production. You might miss out on a couple of great new features of Cubase but you will still gain a huge amount of useful information. If you are unable to follow along to a certain section of our tutorial we always include the final MIDI or audio anyway that we create. We still recommend watching that section so you get the gist of what's going on. Also, some tutorials come with a pre-setup template which may not load up in older versions of Cubase.
I have Cubase Elements. Can I still follow along with your courses?
We try to make our courses Elements friendly where possible. Of course there will be a couple of times where you don't have the particular function (like Vari-Audio) or synth (like Retrologue) but we always offer an alternative way of achieving whatever it is. We also always include the audio in the workfiles so you can carry on with the lesson. The main point is it will not stop you from learning about Cubase and Music Production.
I've not bought from you before. Do you offer refunds?
As we provide instant downloads of our digital products we are unable to offer refunds of any kind. However we will consider each case on it's own merits and may offer to exchange for another of our products of equal value.
Help! I have no sound etc. What do I do?

What happened to the Member's Area?
Since November 2018 we started phasing out the Members Area due to un-fixable limitations with it. We sent out an email explaining this. Any tutorials added from November onwards are download only and will not show here in the Members Area. Tutorials that were released before November will likely still appear here but eventually we will be removing this all together. Sorry for any inconvenience.
When is your support available?
We do our utmost to provide the best, the quickest and the most amazing customer support possible, 5 days a week Monday to Friday (and normally weekends too). We aim to respond to every email within 24 hours (usually much quicker!) where at all possible.
Please bear with us if you are in a different timezone to GMT London. As soon as we are out of bed we'll respond :)
Please, please help us to improve by suggesting ways we can help or deliver things in a better way. This is very important to us!
