    Songwriting & Composing: From Inspiration to Execution

    21 Posts
    It's an amazing thing to be able to move an audience with a carefully crafted song or melody, giving them a taste of your own emotions and experiences. To be able to do that effectively is a real gift, but a gift that needs to be developed.

    Creating a unique song involves multiple steps—crafting lyrical ideas, expressing those lyrics through a memorable melody, working on the song harmonically and rhythmically, giving the song an appropriate structure, and honing all of those elements until it's perfect. Skill is required... and patience! Here is a range of tutorials from basic to advanced that explain it all.

    Beginner’s Introduction to Composing on the Computer

    I’ve been involved in audio production for well over 12 years, but just like everybody else I had to start somewhere. However, I didn’t have the benefit of having somebody show me everything there was to know for a beginner just starting out. In this series I’ll give you the helping hand I didn’t have when I was first starting out.

    22 Posts
    Lead vocals, background vocals, samples, vocoders. Each type of vocal track, and each genre, require different techniques, microphones and gear. You want them to sound professional, on pitch, and full of life.

    Vocals can carry both the meaning and emotions of a song, so you want to get them right. This can include choosing the right mic and mic placement, working with vocalists and choirs, capturing the right mood, the use of samplers and vocoders, and getting the mix right. There's a lot to learn! Here is a range of tutorials from basic to advanced that explain it all.

    Working with Internal Audio Routing

    Trying to move audio data from one source to another should be a very straightforward process. Simply setup your I/O to send one sounds output to the input of another. In fact, we do this all the time inside our DAWs from track to track. But what happens when we want to route audio between applications?
