[  ABOUT ME  ]
Hey! My name is Armando Montanez and I make Electronic Dance Music and EDM tutorials under the name Manak1n.
I won't spend time here talking about what teaching "expertise" I do or don't have; all my tutorials are FREE, so YOU can be the judge of that! (◠‿◠)
All my videos are conveniently available right here on You(Tube), so feel free to check them out whenever you have the time! Join our little community and learn how to master EDM production!

[  But I need YOUR help!  ]
As a full time college student, I don't have much spare time on my hands. Despite this, I feel led to help you guys (and gals) by sharing my knowledge and skill of Logic Pro X instead of picking up a part time job. Unfortunately, I still have to pay for rent, food, and college, as well as any equipment or software needed to further develop the channel.
I've made the commitment to continue creating tutorials for you guys, but there will come a time when I will have to readjust my priorities. When that time comes, I will only be able to continue giving you this material if you are offering your support to me. Remember, many people helping a little is better than a few people helping a lot. For example, skip having coffee ONE day of the month, and put the money you saved towards this channel. It might seem like nothing, but it builds up to become what keeps the the tutorials coming! Even more so, check out long-term goals to see where a solid, steady stream of donations would send this channel! (^‿^)
If you've never donated before, I DARE  you to give it a shot!
(It's a unique experience if nothing else!)
And remember, you can change or end your commitment whenever you need to!

*If you would like to offer a one-time donation, set your monthly donation to the amount you wish to donate, and then end your monthly commitment after the first payment cycle.

Here's a few of my Short-Term goals  ] ✓ [DONE!]
(1.) Right now, my biggest need is for a new screen. My 1440x900 screen works well for general use, but doesn't work well for screen recording due to it's 16:10 aspect ratio (that's what causes the LOVELY bars on the sides of the screen  (¬︵¬)ง"  )
So, first on the list is a 16:9 display that's at least 1080p! (This will cost from $80-$140, depending on if I can catch a good sale)
Thanks to your support, I now have a 1080p display! Thank you so much!

(2.) New editing software would be nice. I've been editing my videos in Windows Movie Maker right now (sad, I know). WMM is notorious for absolutely SLAUGHTERING any quality your recording may have. (T︵T) I'll keep searching for a low cost solution for now, but I plan on switching to the Adobe CC when the monthly expense of $19.99 is covered on a regular basis OR excess donations accumulate and reach the annual expense of $239.88
At that point, I would use a combination of Adobe Premiere and After Effects to edit and render my videos.
This has changed, I will now be using HitFilm 3 Express, it offers high quality video editing for free!


[  What about Long-Term goals?  ]
I'm mostly just offering tutorials on the channel right now, but I would like to eventually expand the channel to include other things such as:
  • Remix Competitions
  • Production Challenges (with prizes!)
  • Featured Subscriber Original Song(s) of the Month
  • Featured Subscriber Content (e.g., Launchpad Remixes videos, Speed Producing, or whatever other cool stuff you guys do!)
  • Hardware and Software Giveaways
  • Chilling with YOU (livestream productions, LIVE twitter Q&A, Gaming sessions, etc.)

[  What do YOU get?  ]
If you have an idea for something you'd like to see as a reward, send me a message on YouTube and I'll see if I can work it in.

Currently, I offer complementary mastering and Skype sessions. If you choose to go for a skype session, send me a contact request with your Patreon email (username: manak1n). Make sure your schedule fits with an available slot by clicking here!

[ Did you really read this whole thing? ]
If you got this far (and you actually read the whole thing) I have to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking your time to read this! I appreciate your support!
Sincerely,
Manak1n
