Since starting his recording career in 2004 at the age of 16, Alex Goot expertly honed his craft and established himself as a force to be reckoned with in new media. His tool of choice for cutting through the clutter: Vegas Pro.
We caught up with Alex just as he finished his first European tour, and before he went back into the studio to start recording the follow-up to In Your Atmosphere.
Sony Creative Software: Alex, you haven't been in the business very long, and you've already achieved an incredible level of success. Did you set out with any goals in mind?
Alex Goot: My goals have been to reach as many people as possible with my music, and enhance peoples' lives by making music that they can enjoy any time. I created a company called Gootmusic to handle all this, but my fans primarily know me as "Alex Goot on YouTube".
SCS: YouTube has emerged as an important platform for new artists. You've done an excellent job of cutting through the clutter; your videos look fantastic. It's exciting to know that you used Vegas Pro to put them together.
Alex Goot: I use Vegas Pro for literally every single video edit that I do for my channel. That's over 50 videos with a combined total of 100 million views. The traffic and excitement on YouTube can sometimes be incredible. My biggest project so far was a cover video of Carly Rae Jepsen's hit "Call Me Maybe." Everything clicked on that, and I've got over five million views on that video alone! Entirely edited and put together in Vegas Pro. read more...
