5 Tips For Improving Your Music Production Quality


Making good music is hard. But with the right mindset, it’s totally achievable. Here are 5 tips for improving your music production quality:

1. Avoid clipping:

Clipping occurs when the amplitude of a signal exceeds full scale, causing distortion and damage to speakers. Using an audio level meter, find a quiet section of your song and make sure the loudest parts are below 0dbFS.

2. Don’t use too much compression:

If you use too much compression, your track will sound weak and un-interesting. This is because compression reduces the difference between loud and quiet sounds in the waveform, which gives it a certain dynamic character. Use a compressor’s makeup gain to boost the overall volume and make sure you’re not overdoing it.

3. Don’t use too little compression:

Using no compression at all might sound great in theory, but it’s rare that a track will translate well without any processing at all. A good mix usually has several different levels of dynamic range – from super quiet to super loud – so without any kind of limiting or compression on the master bus, it can be hard to get your track to sound consistent across all playback devices and speakers. Listen to your favorite songs on a variety of different systems to get

People are always asking me how they can improve their music production quality. It’s a pretty common question and I feel like there’s no definitive answer because everyone’s situation is different. Instead, I’m going to provide 5 tips that will help you on your path to the highest quality music possible.

  • 1. Learn how to use a DAW
  • 2. Learn how to mix
  • 3. Learn music theory
  • 4. Learn sound design
  • 5. Practice, practice, practice!

Electronic music is becoming more popular than ever. In fact, according to the IFPI, digital music sales made up 45 percent of total recorded music revenue in 2014. With such a large market share, there are endless opportunities for aspiring musicians.

As an independent musician, you must always be working to improve your music production quality so you can keep up with the competition and reach more fans. Here are five tips that will help you do just that.

1. Stop Using Free Beat Makers

You may have heard that beat maker software is a better option than hiring a producer because it costs less money. This is true – for now…

But as the electronic music industry grows and becomes more competitive, free beat makers will quickly become obsolete because they limit your creative control and make it harder to produce high-quality songs. If you really want to stay ahead of the competition, you should consider investing in a full-featured beat maker like Dr Drum.

2. Respect The Rule Of Thirds

The rule of thirds is a basic principle of design that can dramatically improve your music production quality. In essence, the rule of thirds suggests that any object or image should be broken down into nine equal parts using two horizontal lines and two vertical lines (like a

When I started producing in 2010, I was 14 and knew absolutely nothing about music production. One day I discovered ‘Now That’s What I Call Dubstep’ on CD in Asda and bought it home, despite being fairly disappointed with what had become of the genre from its origins around 2005/6. Nonetheless, it had peaked my interest and I got back into looking for more dubstep tracks to listen to. I eventually found a Russian dubstep forum where people were posting up their own tracks and getting feedback from other like minded people. This is where I learnt what software people were using and how they were making these amazing tunes that I couldn’t stop listening to.

1. Learn The Basics Of Music Theory

2. Do Not Copy Other Artists

3. Use A High Quality Digital Audio Workstation

4. Use A Midi Controller And Audio Interface

5. Create Templates For Future Projects**

1. Invest in good equipment Good equipment is essential to making good music. I like to think of my studio as a shoe-box and the sound waves as water. If you have a small shoe-box, the water cannot move around very much, so it is hard to get any height on the water if you pour into it. If you have a large shoe-box, the water has more room to move around and will be higher when pouring in.

The same goes for music production. The smaller your studio, the harder it is to get the sound to be high quality because the sound waves do not have enough space to move around. The larger the studio, the easier it is for sound waves to move around and create a better quality of sound.

If you are just starting out with music production, learn how to use free software like Audacity or LMMS. They are both free and easy-to-use programs that can help you produce better music.

Once you feel comfortable with free software, start looking at purchasing paid software. Paid software usually has many more features than free software which will allow you to make higher quality music faster and easier.

Make sure that your computer or laptop can run your DAW smoothly without lag or glitches in the

1. Clean Up Your Mix

Before you start mixing, it’s important to make sure that your tracks are organized, free of noise and well-edited.

2. Work On The Rhythm Section First

Don’t worry about the effects and other plug-ins for now. Start with the kick, bass and snare first because these are the most important elements for setting up a solid groove.

3. Make It Sound Wide And Big

The best way to create a wide stereo image is to use panning and delayed signals to create space in your mix and make it sound more interesting.

4. Create A Good Dynamic Range

You can do this in two ways:

First of all, try to make the loudest part of your mix as loud as possible without distorting it.

Secondly, use dynamic processing (like compressors) to control the dynamics of your sounds and make them more consistent so they fill out the mix in better ways.

5. Use Effects To Add Interest And Depth To Your Mix

After you’ve got everything sounding right with levels and dynamics, now you can add effects like reverb and delay to give it more depth and interest.
