The process of music production
STEP 1: COMPOSING AND RECORDING MUSIC
The process of music production begins with the composition of melodies and creating your own beats in the music software. Professionally pre-produced loops as well as other content are included within the program for musicians and producers. Loops are repetitive sequences that play drum rhythms or instrumental melodies, for example. These can be combined very easily, meaning that even beginners can quickly and intuitively arrange a complete song structure for a music track.
In any music making software, it's possible to play your own melodies and beats using virtual instruments, of course. Piano, guitars, violins, synthesizers and drums – simply connect a MIDI keyboard to your PC or laptop and start recording your own songs and vocals right away. You can then combine your results with premade loops.
Whether you choose MUSIC MAKER, ACID or Samplitude – our range of audio software enables you to compose, record and edit music. All you need to do is pick the right one for your needs.
STEP 2: ARRANGING SONGS
During song composition, the refrain or hook upon which the entire song is based is worked on first. The song is then arranged, meaning that the track structure is created. Verses, bridges, breaks and main themes are defined and arranged. Schematic arrangements may vary according to the music genre.
Most contemporary pop and rock tracks begin with an intro, then continue with several verses, a bridge and a chorus before ending with an outro. Hip-hop, dancehall and some other genres include beats comprised of loops, which often play continuously throughout the track.
STEP 3: MIXING MUSIC
Once a song has a finished structure, the next step is the mixing process – the editing of individual instrument and vocal tracks in the audio editing software. During mixing, effects such as compressor, delay or reverb are applied to vocals and instruments, volume levels are equalized and tracks for stereo sound are split left and right.
To aim of mixing is to achieve a level balance between rhythm instruments, backing instruments and vocals, and lead instruments and vocals. The song is now a tonal unit and is reduced to a single stereo track with left and right channels, known as the mixdown.
STEP 4: MASTERING SONGS
Mastering is the last step in music production. This provides enhanced sound quality by applying specialist plug-ins such as various filters, equalizers or compressor to the audio material and filter out noise in tracks within the audio editing software.
Before pressing your entire album or mixtape to CD, the mastering process equalizes the volume and frequency spectrum of separate tracks, sets gaps between songs and may also add fade outs to the end of tracks. This is to ensure that all songs on the CD have the same sound quality.
For editing your own music with a professional touch, music software Samplitude Pro X and audio editor SOUND FORGE Pro are the right choice.
