    Music production involves allowing the music over completely from scratch and sound engineering involves mixing the different instruments together in order that it sounds nice.

    I will reveal both aspects while they correspond with D.J.’ing but more so around the production side.

    For most established D.J.’s, meaning those who have been D.J.’ing for some time be it of their bedroom or in the club, music production is the next logical step. Because D.J.’s play a wide variety of varieties of music they are offered across plenty of beats and sounds. This inspires some D.J.’s to sample those beats and sounds and make up their very own songs.

    This is actually the start of music production stage. There are 3 stages to music production: pre-production, music production and postproduction.

    Stage 1 Pre-production

    The songs production stage will be the crafting of the new song. I refer to this as the pre- production stage because you are simply experimenting with music. That’s where music in the record or mp3 is sampled utilizing a sampler or drum machine as an Akai MPC. Before you’ll be able to sample and convey music you have to make sure your gear is correctly connected:

    So that I can sample sounds into my Akai drum machine We have my Technics turntable starting the phono input of my stereo unit. I quickly go ahead and take phono beyond my stereo unit for the input of my MPC 3000. My MPC gets attached to my Akai DPS 24.Then the DSP 24 is linked to the CD input from the stereo unit in order to hear things i produce.

    To be able to sample I have to ensure I pick the phono option in my stereo unit. Once i sample the sounds I have to switch the signal from the CD option in my stereo unit in order to hear the playback through the drum machine. Once you have completed your musical arrangement and saved your entire work and you’re simply content with it it is possible to transfer to the part two pre-production phase.

    In this phase occurs when you make artists to do for you track. That’s where you begin to rearrange the track or music you designed with the artists. This collaboration period allows you along with the artists to create minor alterations in the background music as well as the lyrics. It’s also possible to enhance or remove elements of the track like adding additional drums or strings. The artists will practice their song making use of your track. Once this is very tight you move towards the studio to place the music activity as well as the vocals on separate recording tracks. The reasons why you need to practice prior to on the studio is simply because studio time is quite expensive and you also don’t want to spend your time practicing in. That’s that you should focus all your time ensuring the music and vocals are recorded cleanly without pops and clicks.

    Stage 2 Music Production

    When you get to the studio this is when the sound engineer is important. This person is liable for making sure every body music sounds excellent. These individuals have experience. Some D.J./Producers also like to engineer their particular music because they know how they really want their music to sound. If it is the truth then this sound engineer simply assists the D.J. with mixing the music and ultizing the studio equipment.

    The mixing section of the music production phase is performed in the studio where each of the music tracks and vocal tracks are blended together to provide you with what you hear on your own CD.

    Each musical instrument and vocal track is mixed and adjusted in doing what is known as a mixing board like my Akai DPS24 only larger or software based mixing console like Pro Tools.

    Stage 3 Postproduction

    Following your mixing is done the postproduction process begins. A final mix is come to what is known as a Mastering Studio where specialized equipment is employed to bring out the best possible sound. Once this process is done the outcome with the song will be pressed on CD or vinyl and sold on the customer.
