Track: Open Eyes (Original) 👀


@productionmusiclive (@get_repost) ・・・ Today’s post can be seen as a little extension to our tip 2 days ago, since we said there are multiple ways to achieve a fuller sound in the mix on certain instruments. Check the last purple post to learn about the erosion plugin. Our tip today works with white noise and a simple gate, which helps adding only as much extra sound as needed. When? If your leads sound a bit too muddy in the mix and you need them to cut through more. What else could you do? You can of course try raising the highs in an EQ or add another layer with another synth, that adds more high frequencies. Easy White Noise Tip You probably use white noise in your track anyway to create risers or support your side chained open hihats. So it is already a part of the sound palette. By choosing a sound that is already present in a song, you don’t distract with too many different elements. Step 1: white noise Choose your favorite source for white noise. This can be a sample or a synth. If you take the sample, it uses less CPU. Step 2: gate Now load the gate to the track and put it in side chain mode. As the source you choose the lead sound, you already recorded. We called it ‚leads‘ in our example. Step 3: adjust Play around with the settings, until the white noise is just a subtle support for the higher frequencies of your lead sound. Extra Tip You can also try doing this with a sub, when your synth is lacking depth or bottom. Set the threshold to only hit the peaks. That way the white noise/sub is noticeable, but not too prominent. If you have troubles writing melodies - check out today’s stories for our „Melody Course“. . #sounddesign


@productionmusiclive (@get_repost) ・・・ Change and dynamic keep things interesting. Operas, chess games or relationships ;). Of course music is the art form, that lives and breathes change, dynamic and contrast like no other. Even the most monotonous Berlin Techno track applies just the right amount of change, to keep the listener interested in listening - or even better dancing. 1 contrast The concept of contrast is probably valid for many things in life - but very much so for music. You need constant changes to keep the listener interested and surprised. Contrast can be achieved in many different ways. 2 dynamic Contrast can be achieved by dynamic - but also dynamic itself is key to a good song. Parts need to build up and break down, before they can erupt again and culminate in a drop. That is why these parts are called that way ;) . You want to create dynamic between the different parts, but also on a musical level with varying levels of loudness or e.g. cut off in the synth settings. 3 tension + release You need to build tension in order to be able to create these moments when the crowd goes crazy. When they do, the drop is not the most important thing there - it is because the build up was good! Concentrate on summoning enough tension, so that the potential energy that everyone is anticipating, can actually be released. Without tension, no release! 4 story Yes, even if you produce instrumentals. Your music needs to tell a story - and as you know from many great examples, a guitar, a lead synth or even just a little percussion element can sing and tell a story. Put these sound with the right melody or rhythm in the right context and you can tell the story you want the world to hear! Do you want to learn more about arranging your tracks?

@productionmusiclive (@get_repost) ・・・ Hey guys, there is no particular reason today, but we want to grab the opportunity with this post, to say THANK YOU for your ongoing support and the kind words! We really appreciate each and every one of your comments and likes and do not take them for granted! We try to provide you with good and helpful tips every day and sometimes it works ;). Feel free to tell us in the comments, what topics we should cover next and we will try our best! Many of you were asking us, how to use MIDI files and make them your own. So we did this little video to show you, how you can personalize any MIDI file from any Pack and build your own progression with it. MIDI customization First, grab any MIDI file you got from a pack or built yourself and drag it to a MIDI track (we used a file from one of our Packs - link in story). Open it by double clicking and start manipulating it. Tip 1 - note length These chords and progressions do not have to stay the way they came. A very easy thing to do is, to change note lengths by marking a complete chord and shorten or lengthen it to your liking. Tip 2 - apply changes Small changes in the notes of one or each chord can change the dynamic of a progression entirely. Try to keep the voicing intact and re-visit one of our older posts on Sus and 7 chords. Throwing them in here and there will spice up your progression. Tip 3 - melody The material to write killer hooks is already there - in your chords. Try to choose notes that are close together or use intervals given by the chords. Thirds sound deep, fifths sound more open. Tip 4 - sound design You might start picking your MIDIs with a simple piano or key sound. Remember you are not limited to any sound at all. Use your favorite synths and go wild! If you want any of the MIDI or samples used today, you can swipe up in the PML stories to get them! . #sounddesign
