Learn How I Make Music


June 02, 2021

Hey, what's up? I'm so glad you're here because I want to share with you how I make music. Music is my passion and I love creating new sounds and melodies. In this blog post, I'll show you some of the tools and techniques I use to produce my own songs. Let's get started!

First of all, you need a good computer and a digital audio workstation (DAW) software. A DAW is a program that lets you record, edit, mix and master your music. There are many DAWs out there, but I use Ableton Live because it's very intuitive and versatile. You can download a free trial version from their website and try it out for yourself.

Next, you need some instruments and sounds. You can use real instruments like guitars, keyboards, drums, etc., or you can use virtual instruments that are software simulations of real instruments. You can also use samples, which are recordings of sounds that you can manipulate and arrange in your DAW. There are tons of free and paid instruments and samples online, so you can find whatever suits your style and genre.

Then, you need some creativity and inspiration. This is the most important part of making music, because without it, you'll just end up with boring and generic songs. There are many ways to get inspired, such as listening to other artists, watching movies, reading books, traveling, etc. You can also use loops, which are pre-made musical phrases that you can combine and modify in your DAW. Loops can help you get started with a basic structure and rhythm for your song.

Finally, you need some patience and practice. Making music is not easy, and it takes time and effort to learn the skills and techniques involved. You'll make mistakes, you'll get frustrated, you'll want to give up. But don't let that stop you from pursuing your passion. Keep experimenting, keep learning, keep improving. And most importantly, have fun!

That's it for today's blog post. I hope you enjoyed it and learned something new. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them below. And if you want to hear some of the music I've made, check out my SoundCloud page here:
