How to be a Music Producer

So you want to be a Music Producer, huh? OK!  It's not a good decision for your neighbors. But whatever.

 

 

First off all, I want to say that I am too a music producer. Okay, maybe I'm not that good at this. But at least, I want to share with you what I know.

 

 

If you want to become a music producer, you first need to know the music theories. And you need to play any musical instrument. OK! Now forget these two sentences. Because you don't need any of these. All you need is your ears. That's all. And, of course, a computer. I think you have both.

 

 

If you can play any melody in your mind, you don't need anything else. So ultimately, you do not need to play an instrument to be a music producer. What you need is a digital audio workstation.

 

 

Cubase, Studio One, FL Studio, Ableton Live, Logic Pro X  etc.

I'm using FL Studio. If you are already using another one, keep it using. Because, what you need is your imagination. Whichever you use, the good result depends on you. But there are a few other things that will help you in this way. One of them is sample packs.

 

 

You can find thousands of sample packs on the Internet. Just search and download. The more you collect, the better. However, if you collect the sample packs according to the type of music you will do, it will be more useful.

 

 

Tutorial videos will also be very helpful. There are dozens of Youtube channels producing such videos. Here are a few of them.

Try to remix some songs. Find acapellas ( EDM Acapella, MS Project Sound, KING ACAPELLA ). Create suitable chords. Chord is the most necessary thing in music production.

 

Of course, in time you can make money by selling your music.  Even you can be famous.  Why not!?
