Easy Music Creation with Music Maker Loops

There’s a certain editor for music that uses loops, it’s called Music Maker.The software comes with sample loops that you can use to create your tracks. Music Maker loops are features that make it extremely easy for you to start your song writing career just by using this software.

Before innovations like Music Maker loops were invented, we were all quite clueless about how to start creating songs. With this function, you can easily come up with great songs without spending a lot of time thinking of a good loop!

Here’s what you can do as soon as you get the software: create a sequence and add new sounds, then build your first arrangement into a loop or a series of loops. You can imagine just how many sounds and beats you can pump out in a jiffy just by using this program.

A MIDI keyboard is the next thing to purchase when you have your Music Maker because it will let you create more sounds!

It’s amazing how technology has helped us all create these loops. The Music Maker loops are extremely useful if you’re looking for a quick way to make good music.

One way to begin using the Music Maker is to simply experiment with all the loops one after the other.

When choosing from the Sound Pools palette you don’t need to concern yourself with problems such as pitch or tempo, which might be really daunting if you are new to loop creation. The Music Maker loops are made in a way that they are automatically synchronized almost all the time.

When you get the hang of it, it’s time to challenge yourself by turning off the easy mode and starting from scratch. It might take some time to get a handle on the manual controls and synthesizer features, but it’s well worth your time as it will make your music so much better in the long run.

It takes most of us, the seasoned and the beginners, quite some time when playing with a new program, to create anything worth exporting. But hang in there!

You can edit the sound easily just by pushing this or that button. Sharing your music with the world is also a breeze because of the export functions in the Music Maker.

Convert your music into MP3 or upload the tracks straight into a video sharing website like YouTube.

 

Electronic Music Software ( Three Low Budget Options)

Electronic Music Software can be quite expensive, especially a decent one, which is capable of producing the same sounds and beats that get steady airplay on mainstream radio stations. Whether you are just starting out, or if you are simply on a low budget, and have no desire to spend a fortune on a software, finding a well-priced product becomes an important step. This article presents you three programs, which I have considered as good bargains, due to the relatively low price and high value that they deliver.

DUBturbo

DUBturbo is probably one of the “cheapest” electronic music software opportunities there is. While it may not be the most appropriate digital audio workstation for more acoustic music styles, its MIDI-oriented layout and the selection of instruments make it ideal for electronic music. Whether you want to produce rap, techno, or hip-hop – DUBturbo contains a variety of loops, effects, and tools that are necessary for those styles.

One of the limitations of this software is that it can only operate a maximum of 16 simultaneous tracks per project. However, you will unlikely need more when sticking to the formerly mentioned electronic music genres. So, if you are looking for a less complicated tool for putting together high quality beats, then DUBturbo contains a large collection of features for a comparatively low price.

FL Studio

FL Studio is another electronic music software that harbours all the applications and instruments needed for electronic music production. While being more simple to use than the majority of similar programs, it is still somewhat more complicated than DUBturbo. On the other hand, FL Studio has no limits in terms of simultaneous tracks, letting you produce dance music that requires 16 or more simultaneous tracks.

Also, be aware of the fact that FL Studio has several differently priced versions, depending on the amount of additional plugins and attributes included. But the basic version is rather cost-wise and contains all the essential tools. Another positive thing about FL Studio is the large amount of online support available to its users.

Reaper

Reaper has probably the longest learning curve, since the workflow is not as intuitive as in the two previous programs. The second downside of Reaper is that it has no loops or sample libraries to start with, so that you will have to find those separately.

However, the program itself is powerful, allowing you to perform all the necessary tasks related to MIDI, samples, and audio. One big advantage of Reaper is its demo version – it has almost no limitations compared to the paid version, so that you can get a very accurate idea of what this program is all about. It is difficult to find another electronic music software that enables you to use the entire range of its possibilities without paying for it first.

 

Basic Music Production Tips

There are mainly pitfalls along the road of music production; most of these holes can be avoid if the mixing beginner has a few music production basics to help them at the start. Once a person that is new to music production knows the basics and knows the golden rules their learning process and overall education in this field will be at a far greater level than those who jump straight in without knowing or reading anything. Here are some helpful tips:

Always back up all files that are needed in you mix – before you sit down to start a mix, make sure you have all your audio files and arrangement files saved and backed up on something away from your computer. Be that an external drive, DVD/CD, memory stick or even online. Anything could happen, such as a virus infection, hard drive melt down or something else infinitely random.

Mix within a peaceful environment – You cannot do any of the music production basics let alone mix if there is excessive noise going on around you. Even while using headphones it is not good as it is distracting. You do not need extreme silence, although that would be nice. Just all other noise needs to be in the background and not breaking your concentration. Never ever turn speakers up above a comfortable listening level to drown out or counter noise interfering with your ability to mix competently.

Listen though a track before mixing and write ideas down – I always listen through a track I am about to mix and write down ideas I have for the mixing direction. The inspiration could come from specific vocals/words or just a feeling/idea I thought up in that moment of listening; it is easy to put your ideas into practice once you know the music production basics. It is always good to have an idea or direction of how you want the track to go. At this stage an idea would probably be formed anyway. When listening to the track for ideas wait at least 24 hours, or, if you are like me and/or you have time on your hands wait longer and listen to it as fresh and forgetful as you can and base your mixing idea on the first impressions you get.

A Music Production School Can Teach You the Business Side of Music Too

Making music is great, but how about the music business administration part of it? For those who may feel that they don’t quite have the musical chops to be stars in the music industry, there is still a chance to have a successful career in the entertainment world with a music business administration program from a good music production school.

Popular music artists need well-trained professionals to guide them and help them advance their careers from a management perspective. There are also tremendous job opportunities available, both technical and managerial, in entertainment industry related organizations, broadcasters and on-line digital distribution services.

WHAT DOES A MUSIC BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION PROGRAM CONSIST OF?

Most high-quality music production schools will offer you a full time, 45-week three-term study program, or a variation on that. This length of time ensures that you cover the full breadth of opportunities in the entertainment industry.

Generally speaking, most music production schools will start with providing an overview of the organizational structure of the music industry (local, national and international) from creation to distribution. There is usually also an effort to introduce students to contracts, copyright law and marketing. From this sort of overview, students will be able to gleam a solid understanding of the music industry from the business side. Students will also learn all the various aspects involved in a studio recording project, including the choice of record producer, financial and contractual arrangements, musician and song selection, and, that all important negotiating a recording contract.

Some of the best music production schools will also offer courses that provide a more in depth introduction to the day-to-day operations of the artist management business. Promotion and public relations are now more than ever being touched upon, along with the marketing tools for an artist’s project at the local, national and international level.

The final term of study that most music production school s offer usually involves teaching you the skills to support an artist, particularly in the administrative and creative aspect. Also, you will learn how to develop, guide and manage an artist’s career. Finally, in the best music production schools, you will have the opportunity to take part in an internship in a music business enterprise. This is one of the most important aspects of the training as the best learning for music business administration lies in the hands-on aspect where you learn the tricks of the trade. A good music production school will be able to help place you in a reputable music business enterprise where you can learn from the best.

Some schools will ask for a secondary school diploma or the equivalent to enter into a music business administration diploma program, so keep this in mind. Nevertheless, with all the new emerging music artists and music distribution options, there has never been a more opportune time than now to enroll in a music production school program like music business administration!
