Sometimes, recording can be tricky and the music doesn't come out like you want it to (you might even have gotten a "not approved email" from us based on the recording). Don't despair, here comes a few pointers and suggestions!
Recording your music
There are many ways to record your own music. But, to get the best outcome, there are a few steps that might be good to follow if you are relatively new to producing and recording music.
1) You need a music program (DAW - Digital Audio Workstation).
Here are a few examples of programs for your computer:
2) If you're going to record audio for your project, it may be worth spending some money on an audio interface to plug into your computer, as well as a decent microphone to record your vocals with.
3) Go creative and have fun creating your own music!
Mixing your music
Mixing can be a hassle, but it's important to achieve a good sounding track before releasing it. EQ, compression, mastering and so on, are a few of many tools to use when mixing.
Ask yourself these 3 questions (the answers should be YES):
1) Do the sound levels on instruments, beats and vocal recordings sound good?
2) Did I make sure not to have a too loud volume on the audio which can cause it to ”clip” and sound ”distorted”?
3) Did I make sure that my music doesn't contain disturbing ”white noise”?
A good thing if you are new to mixing; listen to the songs you like and compare! Doesn't sound the same? Don't give up, there are plenty more handy tips on the internet.
