Someone at the Laidback Luke forum requested me to explain how I did the bassline for one of my tracks. So i decided to make a short video, I also did a video on how I did the synths. You can see what processing, EQ-ing and compression I applied to this track. Preset downloads are also included.
You’re in a nightclub and the DJ spins a track you don’t know, but you think to yourself: “This song has to be by …..”
There is something recognizable in the song and you immediately think of that one producer. That’s what I call a signature sound.
I have contacted all the major labels that currently dominate the Beatport charts with a list of questions. A large part of the labels that I have approached answered my questions, and the answers are surprisingly similar. Some of the labels asked me not to publish their name, so out of respect for this I will not publish any names.
Some people think you have to master an instrument like the piano in order to be able to create melodies.
I will show you that this isn’t necessary by deconstructing the melody of my track Drowning.
This is a must read for every producer out there, a lot of people label their tracks wrong. Understandable. it can be confusing. There are so many tags. Check this list and determine if your track is a remix, bootleg, edit, mash-up, reboot, demo, promo etc.
In order to create your music you need to have software. We call this type of software DAW’s (Digital Audio Workstation). There are a lot of products available, but which one suits your needs the best?
