My Best Friend Jacob Talks Hidden Opportunities For Producers Scoring Films, Sync Placements + More

My Best Friend Jacob Interview on the Producergrind Podcast. Another podcast live from LA. In this episode we talk to Jacob about his come up working as a producer and videographer and how he blended both worlds to create opportunities for him to monetize making beats. Most producers try to figure out “how to get placements” or the selling beats online route. Most of us are leaving a lot of opportunity and money on the table by not pursuing tv/film sync placements or film scoring projects. The dope thing about Jacob is the fact that he does all his fim scoring in FL Studio (including the new Travis Scott Documentary Look Mom I Can Fly. We also brought up some of Jacob’s favorite producer advice from our Ryan Leslie interview as well as producer beat selling sales funnel advice from our Legion Beats interview

  1. Jacob is very humble and dropped alot of gems. However, he is discrediting Omnisphere by saying its overrated. The potential you can do with Omnisphere is practically endless, and its sounds have been used in many commercial films. Just because that flute preset is overused doesn't mean the VST is overrated. Name another VST that lets you import ANY sound that lets you shape and layer it to whatever you want? It will never be overrated or dated, like Nexus. I would recommend producers watching this video, to see Omnisphere's true potential:

  2. The V collection been crackin ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ alot of producers be sleepin on it ! Been on the V collection since early 2000s when Timbo said he uses it to get that authentic analog sound

  3. Jacob is always dropping gems in these interviews.

    Been super cool seeing him go from being one of my favorite rapper/producers to move into doing so many crazy things on the production side of things.
