Welcome to our first blog post! I just wanted to give you the heads up we will be talking a lot here about life and music and everything related PLUS unrelated stuff too!
We will put audio editing and mixing and mastering tips as well as software and music production tips too! We hope you will find our advice useful and our blog entertaining! Recording Studio LA would like to thank all of clients through out the years its is because of you that we can continue doing what we do and what we love which is music!
The first and most important thing about music production is knowing how to use your equipment/software because with today technology you can make professional quality music inside just about any format. However the recording of vocals and acoustic instruments, drums, guitars and pianos etc is a different creature all together. This requires very refined equipment, microphone cables, soundcards and the whole shebang, but simply making beats or musical instrumentals using virtual instruments is far less critical.
There are so many options out there when talking virtual instrument it’s hard to choose the best my suggestion is to go with brand name companies that everyone knows. They will almost always be up to par and they have a reason to protect themselves against releasing some half finished sloppy products.
My second suggestion when trying to write a hit record is #1 listen to hit records and ask your self a few simple questions: How does it sound? How does it feel? What is the music itself saying? How do the words and melody work together to capture the listeners attention? Once you can dig deeply into that you will start to understand how music works more clearly and you will find yourself much closer to writing one these masterpieces! As with all things “practice makes perfect” or truth be told “practice refines”. So first listen to what others have done, break it down until it makes sense to you and then practice “PRACTICE”.
