If you want to skip the intro and get to the step by step making of your first website, click here to get started. This guide is suitable for musicians, bands, music managers, people who want to give music business advice like myself, and anyone else who’s involved in the music industry in any way that want to make a music website.
Before we look at how to make your music website, I want to quickly explain why you’d want to do this. Both of these things are easy to get hold of, and can be purchased at the same time from JustHost (Note: I get a commission if you sign up to JustHost using my link). Once you go on JustHost, you will need to sign up for a new account by choosing the option Need Website. On the same screen where is says coupon code, you will see there’s a coupon already added. Click to continue, then on the next screen enter your details and what pricing plan you want. So now we’ve got our website name and hosting sorted, the next thing we need to do is add a website builder to our site. Make sure you save the details you add as the username and password for your WordPress install. You can now visit your website in a new window and you should see your site coming together. Now that you’ve got WordPress set up, I suggest you take a few minutes to look around and get used to the WordPress Dashboard. If you want to give the best impression to your potential fans, you need to invest in a good design. I personally use the Genesis Framework, which I have used to build Music Industry How To and many of my other sites.
If you want to look at what free themes are available to you, simply go to Appearance on your WordPress Dashboard, then Themes. I’ll recommend some plugins to get you started, but first here is how to search for them and install them. On your WordPress Dashboard, hover over Plugins on the left hand side menu, then click on Add New. Some plugins require you to edit their settings to your own personal preference (Which is usually pretty easy to do), while others will work straight away without you doing anything more.
As promised, here are some cool plugins you should install to get you started and used to the process.
If you want your website visitors to be able to easily contact you, you can use the Contact Form 7 plugin. If you are going to allow people to leave comments on your website, you will want to include this plugin. There are a lot more plugins you can use as well, and if you want your website to have a specific function, most likely there’s a plugin for that. Now your website is looking nice and functioning well through the use of WordPress plugins, the next thing we need to do is fill it out with pages. While there are a number of pages you can make depending on what you want to achieve with your site, there are a few basic pages that all website should have.
If you want people to really connect with you and your music, you have to give off a certain image.
If you have music to sell (Which you hopefully should) you will need to include a shop page. If you haven’t got many songs or videos, you may want to merge these two pages together so your website looks more full.
As the name suggests, one of these pages will have your songs for people to hear, and the other will have your videos. Like I said there are many other pages you could also add, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box and add any others you feel are necessary. If you want them to buy your music from iTunes or other big digital download websites, you can use the online distributor Songcast to do just that. The good thing about E-Junkie is it doesn’t require you to be there for you to make sales. The download link is also made unique for each customer, so the same two links will never be made.
You can also sell other digitally downloadable items on E-Junkie, such as exclusive wallpapers for your fans, ringtones, or anything else you think your fans could enjoy. Now your website’s set up, the next thing you may want to do is set up a system to monitor the people that are visiting your site. Using these stats you can better understand who your visitor is, and modify your site and promotions accordingly. While there are a lot of tools to track the visitor activity on your site, I’d recommend using Google Analytics. To get this started, you simply sign up for a Google Analytics account on that page, create a site profile in your Analytics account, copy and paste the bit of code they give you into your website, and that’s it. New: Feel free to show me and others the site you make using this guide in the comments section below. Thanks for the bookmark Fairuz, I’ll be adding plenty more guides so keep checking back.
Whether you’re a singer, a band member or a DJ, you will eventually want to set up a website to promote yourself (or your band) online. In this article, we are going to show you, step-by-step, how to build a music website using WordPress. Thousands of themes:  Making a website once meant tweaking HTML code until everything looked right. The support community is huge: With over six million WordPress sites out there, it’s extremely unlikely that you’ll find a problem that someone else hasn’t faced before. At Make A Website we have created hundreds of websites between us, and we know exactly how to help you create a music website with minimal hassle and effort. Our aim is to get you quickly up and running with WordPress and also give you some guidance in attracting people to your site. Don’t worry if you don’t have these things yet – we’re going to take you through everything step-by-step. Some existing online samples of your music that you can link to (such as YouTube clips or SoundCloud mixes).
Once you become more competent with WordPress, we suspect you will want to upgrade to a more sophisticated premium theme, but Singl is ideal for this simple tutorial guide.
It’s up to you whether you want to choose a premium theme now, or switch to one at a later date.
Before you can do anything, you need an address for your website (a domain), and a place to host your website (Web hosting service). We have produced a very detailed step by step guide to registering your domain and setting up your hosting.
If your basic site isn’t yet live, you may need to wait a little longer for your domain information to propagate. The WordPress dashboard is where you control all the content and functionality within your website. Pages are individual areas of your site, usually accessed through the top or side menu bars. Posts are individual blog posts, that usually appear in reverse date order as visitors scroll down the page. After creating a couple of pieces of content, it should become very clear how to start to build up your site.
The content is down to you, but before you create more, let’s look at how to make things a little more engaging. As you are creating a music site to showcase your talents, you need to include some real life music clips. Assuming you’ve created all the content you need, you are now almost ready to launch your site. In the image below, you can see how fundamentally we’ve changed the look of our demo site by simply tweaking the colours and swapping the default background image for a plain colour. I decided to write down some guidelines on how to make electronic music (although some of the following tips may apply to other musical genres as well, not just electronic music) covering such things as what hardware is required or recommended, what kind of music making software is needed, how to get a hang of different kind of electronic music styles, etc. A little info about myself is that electronic music production has been my longtime hobby for years and I’ve been creating music on such genres as trance, downtempo, ambient and experimental.
Excuse my english, it’s my second language and not so perfect, but I hope you understand and find these guidelines useful and get your answer on how to make electronic music.
However, like I already mentioned, even though you CAN make music with any kind of modern computer, it will help a LOT to have a decent specs. These days every modern computer has a some kind of on-board sound chip so basically you can start off making electronic music without spending money to external sound card or audio interface. I myself have M-Audio Audiophile Delta 2496 and even though it’s not a high-end sound card, it has been enough for me for all these years.
Although I created one of my dutch dance chart hit songs using only cheap Sony headphones I bought from a local supermarket, decent studio monitors (near field monitors) are highly recommended. There’s a wide range of studio monitors and headphones in the market on all price ranges. In a few hundred dollars price range, I recommend checking out the M-Audio and KRK Systems. I have to say that studio monitors are one of the most important hardware in your home studio, so before choosing your monitors (or headphones), try to listen as many different models as possible and ask around and chat with the audio professionals and people who work in the audio production field. There’s a lot of VST effect units as well such as reverb, eq, compressor, delay, chorus, phaser, some special fx, etc. One of my personal favorite virtual synths are made by U-He: for example, check out Diva, Hive or Zebra. Even though most of DAWs does have a basic set of tools for such audio editing tasks as cutting, fading and encoding to MP3, you may prefer a separate audio editor.
Sample packs consists usually of single drum hits like kick drums, snares, hihats, hand claps, crash cymbals, percussion sounds, synth hits, bass sounds and so on which you can use to build your own beats and grooves. When you buy a commercial sample pack, you buy the license to use the samples and most (if not all) are royalty free meaning, if you create a song which uses samples from these sample packs, you don’t have to pay any additional fees to the sample manufacturer. Okay, so now that you have your hardware, software and sample collections in place, you ask: how do I make that electronic music then?
Let me tell you how I learned to make electronic music in a first place: I listened what other artists do and started to do the same. However, in EDM (electronic dance music) such as uplifting trance or dance music that is generally aimed for club’s, structure is a bit different than in radio pop songs. When you start to create your own song, I suggest you pick up your favorite song and load it into your DAW and – no, do not copy the song itself, but use the song structure like a reference to see what happens and when. Seriously, I really think the best way to learn how to make electronic music is listen tons of other producers work and then try to do the same. When I mix my songs (if it’s a electronic dance music aka EDM), I  give most power to the drums. Again, listen to your favorite songs in the same genre you’re trying to make music in and notice how they’re mixed.
I have to say that trying to make your mix sound good is probably one of the most hardest part in music making.
It has happened to me several times, that I thought I’ve made a killer song in a day and then, in the next day when I listen the song again, it sounds like garbage: all the sound levels and EQ settings are out of balance or there are elements that doesn’t seem to fit in to the mix at all. Hey thanks so much for this info was very informative i have just been making loop based electronic music but am self taught and am using sony acid pro . While its good info for starters, i can personally say from experience there are some improvement you could give to you overall kit, example are the monitors, i had behringer and they dont tell the TRUTH!! As for DAWs, i think FL is pretty damn simple, really simple, missing out on key options simple. Whenever i talk about music production with friends i always say there is never one way to do something. About soundcard: Referring to your comment about m-audio, what model specifically and by bad quality do you mean the overall sound, recording from external sources, driver problems or something else? I personally made music for years just by using the onboard soundchip and the audio quality was as good as it’s now with a decent soundcard.
Do you have your music making software and gear all set, but wonder where to start the actual song making process? I go to the Piano Roll view in FL Studio and choose a root note and  I layer one ore two more notes on top of it and experiment till I find a note combination that sounds good. Now, the strings chord pattern I have just created is very very basic, but it’ll give me a guideline what melodies I should add next.


I simply just copy the root notes of the strings chord pattern and paste them to the bass instrument track. So basically what I just created here is the chorus for my song (or the “hook” as it’s often called). When I’m making a song, I need to listen it as in whole, over and over and over again, countless of times, just to get a hang of the feel and to hear the bigger picture. If I make a song using the common structure – intro-verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus-outro, I usually try to create the verses in a way that they make the chorus stand out.
Just one more thing, when you start a track with the drums + bass how do you create a melody around it? Hey Marco, at the moment I’m not able to offer the downloadable version straight from my website (bandwidth limit), but you can go to my Youtube channel and use a Firefox extension like Easy Youtube Downloader to dl it. I am no theorist or anything, just like yourself i have been a hobbiest computer music producer for ~15 years, the stuff i have picked up is mostly from youtube videos on music theory.
By the way, I got a question: Can the bassline notes be different octave than root notes of the strings?
I’ve had different tips of analysing songs and trying to figure out their layers and build up, but got no idea where to start. Well, usually with dance music I create the drums and bassline first and then start building melodies on top of that. Making it in the music business takes a lot of hard work and effort on your behalf, so if you aren’t willing to invest the time needed, don’t expect to get very far at all. Now I know someone in the comments is going to say that not everyone has a lot of time to dedicate to their music career, and I understand that. In fact, even if you’re not involved in the music industry, you can still follow this guide and make a cool website suitable for your industry.
This will ensure you don’t pay for your domain name, and that you get a reduced hosting price.
I suggest you don’t add any of the extras they try and offer you, other then the Domain Privacy.
By far the best free website builder on the market is WordPress, so we’ll be using that. Everything is pretty clearly marked out, so get familiar with some of the tasks you can carry out. We’re going to walk you through the other stages of how to make a music website anyway. Giving a good first impression is important in your music career, so having a good looking website is crucial.
Not only do these themes look a lot better then the free themes, but they are easier to use for your visitors, and you have a lot more control over how you can customize them. They have a lot of different designs to choose from, and can give a different feel no matter what type of look you want. You can then search the plugin you want, and on the next screen choose Install Now on your chosen plugin (If you aren’t sure of the name of a plugin, you can search for a feature you want and you can find a relevant plugin like this).
This will add a contact form to any page you require, and sends you an email once the contact form is filled out.
You will want your fans to share your pages and blog posts, so add these sharing buttons to them.
What is does is allow your visitors to subscribe to the comments conversation, so they are emailed when any new comments are left on that page.
It will display thumbnails of your pictures, which grows in size as your visitors click to view them.
What Login Lockdown does is make it so that if a hacker tries to log into your site, they will be stopped.
Have a search of the plugin marketplace in your WordPress Dashboard to see some of the options.
In WordPress, pages are what you’ll use to create any page you want to always appear in the same place on your site. Because of this, it’s important that you make this page very useful, and provide links to other important areas of your site. Be sure to just give them a few main options however, rather than giving them every link to all your pages at once. Using your About page, you can tell them what you’re about and have them feel like they know you that bit better. If you have a lot of both however and want to make things a bit more clear, you may want to make these two pages separate. You’ll want one of these so people can contact you about any bookings, and make connections with you in terms of the music business. I suggest you give fans a choice of where they buy your music, so they can do what is best for them.
You can limit the amount of times your purchaser can download from the link (Say allow them to only download from the link 3 times, the number you choose is up to you), and you can also block the link from being downloaded anymore if it’s being downloaded on different computers. This is a lot easier to do then it sounds, and I’ll show you a free tool you can use to do this in a little bit. This is a free tool from Google, and is probably the most complete free tool on the market. Just look at the stats that are important to you, and learn the more advanced tracking features as you go along.
Remember though, none of what you've learned will matter if you don't know how to get your music out there and make people WANT to hear it.
Sign up to the newsletter if you haven’t already to be updated when I put new guides out. You will find endless WordPress support forums to help you, and thousands of developers and experts if you ever need any specialist help or customisation. First of all, we are going to change the fundamental appearance of the site by installing our theme. HOWEVER if you’ve already chosen a different theme, you can go ahead and install that instead. Click the “Upload” link, then click “Choose File” and browse to where you saved the Singl theme on your computer. When you refresh the live website, you will now see a new drop down menu, as shown in the screenshot below.
You will notice that both “Posts” and “Pages” have an “Add New” option when you hover over them.
Go back to the live view of your site, refresh the page if necessary, and you should see your new content in place. If you would rather have a static home page, rather than one containing your latest posts, then create a page, and then go to Settings > Reading, and set it as your home page. Maintain a steady presence on social networks, engage with fans and give them reasons to visit.
Constantly keep the website updated with new content – both so that fans return and so that the search engines have plenty of new content to index. Give fans sneak previews of new materials via the website to give them a compelling reason to return. There’s a lot of choices in hardware and software, countless of ways to do things in production wise and as many arguments and differing opinions as there are producers. Some of my songs has been released commercially through record labels and has also been used in a film project.
You can actually produce good music with any kind of modern computer (I mean anything made in the past 5 years), including laptop.
The more CPU power and RAM you have under the hood, the more smoother your music software will run and you’re able to build much more complex projects without choking your computer. If I’m going to upgrade this at some point, I probably get the SSD where I install the Windows. Lot of professional say they are not very good, or that they completely suck, but so far I’ve been doing ok with them. Personally, I’ve created many songs just by using mouse and regular computer keyboard.
The DAW is a software environment where you actually create and compose the music and it is one of the most important components in your electronic music studio.
VSTi’s (VST instruments) are virtual synthesizers that produce different kind of sounds.
I have all of their virtual synths and I especially love Miroslav Philharmonik which has very good orchestral sounds.
Just like many painters have learned to paint by studying and copying other peoples work, same goes to electronic music. Yeah, they’re about pop, but it helps you to get a hang of the idea of song structures and you can apply the same principles to electronic music as well. Saw lead synth sounds, square wave bass sounds, huge pads, weird effected sounds are all the basic musical elements in electronic music. Swooshes, risers, uplifters, downlifters, white noise sweeps and fx hits are some commonly used effects in electronic music. He has been producing music with computers over a decade on such styles as trance, downtempo, ambient & experimental electronic using FL Studio.
Obviously it doesn’t have to literally explode in sounds, it can still remain minimal, just as long as it ties in together, before heading off into the outro. For example in FL Studio there’s Edison which is fully featured audio editor and most of the DAWs have some sort of audio editing capabilities.
I’ve been favoring Sound Forge because I can do the required precise cutting, copying and pasting with it.
Music making software I’m using is FL Studio and musical style here is something like downtempo with soundtrack kind of elements.
At this point I have to say that I don’t have a lot of music theory knowledge (seriously, I can’t even read the notes), but I do have a bit of musical ear so I can pretty much tell what chords, chord combinations and melodies work together. Miroslav Philharmonik has some nice sounding strings and strings are good for experimenting with different kind of chords.
I copy and paste the first chord and try different notes in it to find a combination that plays well with the first chord. There’s a tons of possibilities and different kind of combinations and it may take a while before I come up something catchy.
I load an instrument which I’m going to use to play a melody that works with the strings chord pattern. I’ll keep adding and testing different notes until I find a melody that plays along nicely with the strings chord pattern. I copy the root notes of strings chord pattern and build a bassline according to those root notes.
I choose a kickdrum, snare and hihat and create a basic drum pattern that fits to the style of bassline and melodies.
I load a kickdrum, snare and hihats to FL Studio’s Sampler channels and create a drum pattern via Step Sequencer that plays along nicely with the bassline and melodies.
I try to keep the verse simple (simpler melodies) and go with less sounds (fewer drums sounds for example) than the chorus so that chorus really makes an impact to the listener.
I usually use a “mini-chorus” here which could be something simple like an instrument playing the chorus melody.
Another one I use a lot is that I create a drum groove, start to play bassline on top of it with my MIDI keyboard, compose the melodies and then maybe chords. The instrument to play in the intro, for example, could be the same instruments of chorus?
But I suggest to add a couple of more instruments to the chorus to make it really stand out between the verses.
This is SO beatiful, that i’ve listened the step 3 of this tutorial more than the whole music. I should also dive into pure music theory as that is the area I seriously lack of knowledge! Also, feel free to experiment with the bassline by using different note variations than just the root notes: try transposing a section of the notes half step or whole step up or down and listen carefully what notes work with the current chord. This is just as important as the above step, as without drive, your talent isn’t going to count for much.
If however you haven’t got the motivation to get your music recorded, to promote it in any way, or to generally do the things needed for a successful music career, then you might as well be talentless.
Today we’re going to look at how to build a music website that will attract and keep fans. I have found them to be reliable, and the cheapest around for the level of service you get.


If you don’t add this, people will be able to look up who the website is registered to and see your real name and address. You do however need to be aware that the menu of the WordPress Dashboard is on the left hand site, and this will allow you to sort out all the features on your site.
This isn’t the same with Premium themes however, which have a dedicated support team ensuring their themes are compatible with each new version of WordPress. Features you can add include a comments form, social sharing buttons, media players, picture galleries, broken link checkers, and pretty much any other feature you could reasonably want from a website.
This is perfect for encouraging repeat visitors to your site, and getting them involved in what you’re doing. While WordPress makes it so you have to approve comments before they are added, it gets annoying getting emails about new comments to approve then realizing they’re spam.
Hackers are known to try and log into other people’s sites using software that tries thousands of password combinations until it gets the right one.
If you want to create a blog with regularly updated news and information, you can publish each blog post via the post section.
Usually your home page will either have your latest blog posts (If you want to have a blog on your site that is), or like I said, a page with links back to important pages. If someone knows about you and they take to you, it’ll be a lot easier to turn that person into a life long fan.
You can make it so they can buy your digital downloads directly from your website, and you can make it so they have the option to buy your music from a well known music store such as iTunes.
You can then link to these sites, where your songs are, from your site and sell your music that way. E-Junkie allows you to protect your digital downloads, and sell them automatically on your website. Even if you’re not around, E-Junkie will automatically take the payment, verify it, and send your customer the song via a secure link. If you look at your stats and you see the majority of your fans are finding your website from a particular forum for example, you may want to step up your promotion efforts on that forum as you know it’ll probably bring you even more traffic and fans. We’ve not got a guide showing tips for using Google Analytics, so check that out to get started. I’ve had a lot of people follow this guide and create a neat website for their music career, so I know you can too. All of these are sensible ways to promote music, and we recommend that you use some or all of them.
There are quite literally thousands of themes available, and plenty are tailored specifically towards the music industry. You may choose to use a contact form plugin for this, and we recommend that you check out Contact Form 7. In this article I try to point you to the right direction in electronic music production, mostly based on my own experience.
It works with most sound cards (even with those on-board chips) making it possible to use lower latency settings.
Some users report they are having problems with Delta series cards in Windows 7 machines though. Because studio monitors are specifically made for audio production and they give an accurate reproduction of the tonal qualities of the source audio.
However, before releasing your musical production to public, I recommend that you listen it through as many different sound systems as possible (like normal home and car stereos, etc.) and tweak your music until it sounds good and balanced on all of those systems. And after all, I think one of the most important thing with your studio monitors is to learn to listen to them. Many computer music software like FL Studio and Ableton Live lets you play music using your computer keyboard. I personally use drum- and top loops quite a lot to enhance the rhythmic sections of my songs.
Try to hear what kind of sounds your favorite song has and try to replicate these sounds with your virtual synths. Like mentioned earlier, many VSTi’s have several ready made quality preset sounds to start with. This can happen if you produce music for several hours non-stop: your ears get tired and in the end of the day you, can’t hear things as balanced anymore as with fresh ears. However, Traktor is NI and NI = only good stuff in my personal experience (at leas when talkin’ about the sotware!)! I have bought countless monitors and talked to countless people about them before finally finding a set that i like. But then again, I don’t record anything from external sources, I just use it with VST plugins and FL Studio and so far it has been doing ok. So, next task is to load up another instrument and start to design a melody that works together with the strings chord pattern. I usually start with something very basic and blend in more percussion elements (or loops) as I move on. Song must be coherent as in whole so the chorus works like a guideline giving me directions on what kind of melodies the verses should have as they must be in a style of chorus.
This way I’m able to decide what sounds or melodies REALLY needs to be tweaked, taken out or added so that there arent any inconsistencies. OR one method is that I just start building a song from the intro, without a clue what the chorus is going to be and keep adding elements as I move on and usually I come up with some nice ideas for the chorus at some point. It can be extremely fulfilling to be able to make money by doing something you love, so here are some great tips to help you achieve your goals.
Sure if you have a strong marketing team in place and they spin a good angle on why people should like you, you don’t have to be the most talented musician in the world to see some level of success. You want people’s first impression of you to be a good one, as it’s not a easy job relaunching yourself to a group of people who have heard you but weren’t very impressed. There are lots of levels of talent, and while you can be quite successful with a ‘good’ level of talent, if you’ve undeniable talent (combined with the other factors in this list), it’ll be hard for you not to have some sort of financial success in the music industry. If you’ve the other factors in place and you dedicate as much time to your music as humanly possible, you can still have some level if success.
Not only will you make a super attractive website, but it’ll also be fully functional and everything you could want from your band website. You won’t have the same restrictions that these external sites will have, so you can do whatever you please. Click New Installation on the next screen, and follow the instructions on the two screens after that. On the screen that comes up, you’ll find the option to filter what kind of theme you want.
The latest blog post will always appear at the top of the page, and other blog posts get pushed down as new ones come along. You may want to have one of your videos there, as well as a link back to a page with more of your videos. This will make it easier for you to filter mail based on what the person is contacting you for. You will then receive the money in your PayPal account, or any other payment processor you’re using. However, you will also want a website of your own where you can pull everything together and include other information like details of gigs or merchandise. Then copy the code (shown with the arrow) to your computer’s clipboard (the shortcut for this is CTRL+C on Windows or CMD+C on a Mac). UPDATE: short while ago, I updated to Windows 10 and so far it seems to be really stable and working good with FL Studio 12! In other words, they tell you the truth what’s REALLY going on in your music in a terms of frequencies. Every song (in almost whatever genre) follows some sort of common and logical structure – including the different styles in electronic music.
Whatever the style is going to be, with a cool drum groove, it’s much easier to start creating other musical elements such as bass groove on top of it and other instruments as well. So, my advice is this: try not to finish a whole song in one day, spare your ears and leave something for a next day. Just make sure u know your standard DAW well, and i mean really really really really really well before starting another, there are loads of little tricks in DAW programs you dont find at first, luckily there are forums and youtube to help increase your knowledge of your DAW. As well with producing, watched way to many youtube videos, took online courses via pointblank and just talked to friends about it, information is key. Bassline can be created from scratch, but in this example I use the root notes of the strings chord pattern and build the bassline based on those root notes. I usually use the basic strings and oboe sounds just for designing the melodies and after I come up with something decent, I start to test how the melodies work with different kind of instruments and sounds. That said, do you really want to be that person who has more people disliking them then supporting them? Chances are they won’t try and listen to you the second time around, even if you tell them that you’ve improved. In all honesty, there are a ton of talented musicians out there who make really good music that will make their target audience very happy. It may take longer to achieve then it would for someone who has 7 hours a day to dedicate to their music and who has more disposable income.
Choose any options you may want (Or don’t click any options if you want to look at all themes) then choose the Find Themes button at the end of the page.
Or for an in-depth fool proof guide on how to get people to listen to your music, get our online music business course here.
If you are using a different theme, look in the documentation for suggestions regarding social network integration. You can make excellent music with both platforms and most of the music making software are available for both (except FL Studio, though the MAC version is coming). The sound is uncolored so there will be no bass or high frequency boosts or anything like that like the normal hi-fi speakers or heapdhones tend to have.
But on the other hand, you get a totally different feel for playing melodies and controlling your audio software with a MIDI keyboard controller. The sequencing features and workflow compared to other DAWs are simply unbeatable and that counts a lot because it goes hand in hand with how well you are able to put your musical ideas into action (NOTE: if you decide to buy FL Studio, I have a special LINK which gives you 10% off the regular price).
Many virtual synths have readily programmed preset sounds for various electronic music styles. However, I also recommend to experiment and tweak the knobs, sliders and buttons and see what happens. I’m personally using this technique (alongside with many others) when I’m out of musical ideas. So everything usually changes and the finished song will sound much more different than this. This will help you to create music where every sound is in balance (depending on your mixing skills of course) and this will increase the probability that your music sounds good in different sound systems like car stereos, portable mp3 players with earbuds and so on. So before I was able to make my own song in trance genre, I listened a lot of other producers trance songs, analyzed them (especially the song structure) and finally got a hang of how they were put together. They’re one of the most important elements in any kind of electronic music that has a drum beat. You can come up with some really original and wild stuff just by experimenting with the different synth parameters. Im looking at the new Newmark control w Serato or the Tracktor control w tracktor software of course.
I used to use three different DAWs, but I found it’s just too much hassle switching over from one DAW to another. If you can get your talent to this level, you’re going to be a lot closer to your music career goals. But if you dedicate a few nights a week after you’ve finished work and put the kids to bed, as well as half a day on the weekend to what you need to do, there’s no reason you can’t make at least an additional income from your music. I try to make sure that the drums are punchy and loud enough and if some other instrument is trying to compete with my drums too much in frequency wise (or bass in this matter), I use equalizer to cut the low frequencies off from that sound.
That way, you don’t have to put time and effort on learning a completely new computer system and you can concentrate more on learning how to make the electronic music. It has sounds for practically any kind of musical style from trance to house to hip hop to ambient to film music.
