    Xtrah was I believe, pricey tho imo :/ My advice, become a promoter, book some big names, befreind them, lessons ;) But seriously, I got mega lucky this way and had Basher come down to my house a few times - Learnt SOO much!

    Besides that, lots of DAW stuff is transferable to other DAW's, atleast I learned a lot from using logic mixdown wise, that I still use in cubase : ).
    So saying he should teach whatever the student uses is bollocks, if you have a brain you can transfer what you learned to your DAW.

    Computer music magazine have done lots of videos (production masterclass)...with loads of top DnB names!
    Check these out man because it's basically the same as getting a one to one....on top of that just practice practice practice!....and buy some good studio monitors!...if you haven't already!....even if you spent 100 hours with noisia etc then went home to shitty monitors mixing down a quality track is nigh on impossible!...keep at it tho and everything will come together!

    Producing is the easy part tbh....it's selling music that's hard lol ;)
