A Complete MOBILE Songwriting Rig (+LUNA Challenge and GIVEAWAY!)

On this episode of Let’s Write a Song, I turn my eyes on the LUNA Challenge issued by Universal Audio to test out their FREE (if you have one of their interfaces) recording software called LUNA. Also – I’m giving away an Apollo Solo interface to ONE lucky Gear Mortal – details in the video!

The rules are simple – the session must contain the following:

  • Minimum 60-second composition 
  • Minimum 2 tracks recorded w/ Unison processing
  • Minimum 1 instance of Moog Minimoog
  • Minimum 1 instance of Shape
  • Minimum 1 layered instrument instance of Shape (example: blend 4-instruments to make a new sound)
  • Minimum 1 instance of Ravel
  • Minimum 1 instance of Neve Summing
  • Minimum 1 instance of Multitrack Tape 
  • Share the music and production process on YouTube with “LUNA Challenge” included in title

I used all this to write a pretty spicy little lofi hip hop guitar track that I’m pretty happy with! Watch the video above to see the whole process. Check out LUNA for yourself here.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
