In the previous weeks of music production blog posts we looked into finding the right equipment, writing the melody and coming up with the song forms. Moreover, last week we looked into how to arrange the rest of the song in terms of adding more instruments such as bass and drums.
In the last post, I went over how to write a A section and B section of a song using Ableton Live. In this post, I would like to expand our song a bit and get into adding some more instruments.
One of my go-to softwares for producing/writing is Ableton Live. I also regularly produce record on Pro Tools, Logic, Digital Performer and Reason, but there is something about Ableton that speaks to me in terms of writing music. There are many different softwares that you can record and produce your music, but I think one of the biggest reasons I regularly use Ableton is its ability to loop.
Today I would like to get into one of the big mysteries of music: producing songs. Many people write songs on guitar, piano or even Voice Memos while walking down the street. But after you write your songs, how do you record it? Do you know how to make a demo? How does this all work especially if you do not know anything about producing?
