Hello guys, today I want to share with you 5 awesome ways to get into music production! Are you ready? Let’s do this!
Many people wants to know how to get into music production. With the success of some music production superstars like Thomas Juth, Chris Bellman, Skrillex, Deadmau5, and others, some are young others are matured too, with a talent for music have become interested in learning how to start producing music.
A record producer or music producer oversees and manages the sound recording and production of a band or performer’s music, which may range from recording one song to recording a lengthy concept album.
Many music lovers wants to be music producers because they’re a musician with a desire to write and compose instrumentals and beats, either for themselves or for their clients.
Does it means you should one of the best keyboard players to be a producer? Not necessarily. One of the top producers, for instance, composes his tracks by writing the notes in. And some other producers are more comfortable using impact pads to beat out rhythms and grooves, even chords and samples, to construct their music. In essence, this sort of music producer actually turns their digital audio workstation into a computer instrument, using a variety of MIDI commands from MIDI controllers and instruments to get the sounds that they want to produce to make their music.
Some of the music producers gets into music as a singer-songwriter. They started by composing their own songs, maybe strumming to them on a guitar, composing and arranging the music for them. Because they want to entertain their audience, they come with a strategy, one which you may implement as well if you fall into this category.
Some people also wants to be solo. This singer-songwriter gets some gear and software to record their vocals and maybe an instrument. They learn little about engineering and create music around their songs. A lot of these singer-songwriters may turn to make and producing loop music to use as accompaniment for their on-stage programs and studio session. They may employ the help of another music producer more proficient in writing instrumentals in a DAW to help flesh out their songs into epic tracks. Then they find the various ways of selling and distributing their music to their fans out there they have developed over time. They have produced their own music, taking care of the writing, creative, and marketing process on their own and also to sell their tracks.
Some great musicians get into production because they are into engineering. They probably started out from their love of gear and software. They naturally move into either being employed at a recording studio or building a home studio themselves.
Some engineers, because of genuine love for music and creativity, will develop an ear of their own to create nice songs. This naturally comes because they would know what sounds good musically in their eyes, and what works, even if all an engineer knows is about frequency response and signal flow.
So, with an ear that knows what sounds good, and what they’d like to reproduce, this audio engineer producer begins to naturally look for other musicians and singers they can work with to record in their studio.
Know what to do when mixing a track: how to blend all the MIDI tracks together into one mellifluous mix.
You should differentiate between “in the box” and “out of the box.” In the box just means you’re mixing solely on a computer program; out of the box means that you’re mixing with a soundboard and other non-computer equipment to achieve your sound.
Know the difference between stereo mix and mono it is very necessary in music production. Stereo mixes represent two different tracks in the same song, one for the left ear and one for the right; mono represents a single sound for the track.
In mixing know what to put in the middle. Bass guitar and vocals usually want to stay in the center of your mix — not off to any one side. Other instruments and production elements can usually be panned slightly to the left or right side to create a fuller good sound.
Do your best to create your tracks such as Punk, Ska, Rock, Rap, R&B, Country, Funk, Jazz, and the like. You should focus on mastering one style of music. This will make you name for yourself in one particular genre before eventually moving onto different musical styles. Because they often involve less instrumentation, Hip-Hop, R&B, and Pop are the easiest to start off with.
Eventually, try creating more genres. The more genres you become fluent in, the broader your horizons will be (and the more clients you’ll get). Don’t overextend yourself too early, however. Master one genre down pat before you move onto the next one.
