How To Make Electronic Music: A blog explaining the basics of making electronic music.
How to Make Electronic Music is a blog that explains the basics of making electronic music. It covers everything from choosing software, learning the basics of synthesis, eq-ing and compression, sound design, and how to use effects like delay and reverb to make really cool sounds.
Electronic music has been around for a long time. It started in the early 1900s with the invention of the synthesizer.
Instrumental electronic music is a style of music that uses electronic instruments to produce sound rather than live musicians. These instruments include synthesizers (synthesizers), samplers (samplers), sequencers (sequencers), drum machines (drum machines), and effects units (effects processors). The term “electronic music” can refer to any genre of electronic music including techno, house, trance, jungle, ambient, IDM, dubstep, glitch hop, future funk and more. If it’s made with electronic instruments then it qualifies as electronic music!
Electronic musicians are often called DJs. A DJ plays records or CDs at clubs or parties while people dance. They can also play other types of media such as MP3s or even videos on their computers or laptops. DJs generally mix multiple tracks together using turntables and mixing boards
A friend recently got into making electronic music and has asked me for help. I’m going to try and write up my thoughts on making it as a blog.
I’ve been making music for over 15 years now, and in the past few years I started getting more seriously into electronic music production. I’ve done some composition, sound design and live performance, mostly working with Ableton Live.
My background has been primarily in jazz and classical music, with degrees in Music Composition (MM) and Electrical Engineering (BSE).
I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of electronic music projects, including a remix for La Roux (which was featured on Pitchfork), an experimental electronic album called “The Instrumentals,” a remix for Cults (which made it onto the Cults Remixes album), and several other remixes and original tracks.
Some of my favorite artists are: Flying Lotus, Amon Tobin, Prefuse 73, The Prodigy, Boards of Canada.
Here is a list of websites that are great resources for learning how to produce electronic music.
These sites will not only teach you the basics of electronic music production, they will also allow you to become familiar with the tools and techniques used by some of your favorite electronic music producers.
If you’re new to the world of computer-based music production, you’ve come to the right place! In this section we give you a quick introduction to what it takes to become an electronic music producer.
You do not need to be a professional musician, producer, engineer or have any experience with music to start making electronic music. There are many programs that can be used to make electronic music, but I will be going over the ones I use.
The first thing that you need is a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and a VST (Virtual Studio Technology). A DAW is an application for recording, editing and mixing audio files. There are many options for DAWs out there, but the three most popular DAWs are Ableton Live, Logic Pro X and FL Studio. Ableton Live is my favorite by far. It’s designed for electronic music producers as well as live performers. However, it may not be the best choice for everyone. FL Studio is also great and much cheaper than Ableton Live. I would suggest starting with FL Studio because it’s much more beginner friendly than Ableton Live. If you have some experience with a DAW, I would suggest trying out both Ableton and FL Studio and compare them to see which one works better for you.
Ableton Live comes preloaded with tons of samples, loops and instruments that are really useful when getting started. If you want to add more sounds to your projects, you
Today music is a big industry. In the early days of electronic music, it was still linked to the arts: the avant-garde, counterculture and art schools. Even today many artists have an academic background. But electronic music is increasingly becoming a commercial business.
The biggest problem in instrumental electronic music is that there are so many possibilities – how do you choose? You can use any sound imaginable, not only sounds that are produced by traditional instruments. And you can manipulate these sounds in almost every way possible.
But then most of the work will be trial-and-error: some programming, some tweaking of parameters, listening to the result and trying something else until you get bored or the result sounds interesting enough to keep working on it.
From my experience this approach is neither very efficient nor very fun. In order to get more control over your music, it helps to have at least a vague idea of what you want to achieve beforehand. Only then can you decide which tools and techniques might help you achieve this goal. This process requires some preparation: some thinking about what kind of music you want to make, and some learning about the various tools and techniques (even if you only learn enough to know whether they might be useful for your project or not).
Electronic music is music that employs electronic musical instruments and electronic music technology in its production, an electronic musician being a musician who composes and/or performs such music.
In general a distinction can be made between sound produced using electromechanical means (electroacoustic music), and that produced using electronics only.
Electromechanical instruments include mechanical elements, such as strings, hammers, and so on, and electric elements, such as magnetic pickups, power amplifiers and loudspeakers. Examples of electromechanical sound producing devices include the telharmonium, Hammond organ, and the electric guitar, which are typically made loud enough for performers and audiences to hear with an instrument amplifier and speaker cabinet. Pure electronic instruments do not have vibrating strings, hammers, or other sound-producing mechanisms. Devices such as the theremin, synthesizer, and computer can produce electronic sounds.
