How Are IT Systems Used In Music Production?

Charlie K    |

In music production, it is very common to use systems of music or song structures for different songs or pieces. This article will go more into detail about what a system is, how they are used, and examples.

Interlude: Important Notes

It is important to recognize that not every piece has a system. Some artists find their style which includes using patterns but this is not general consensus.

There are three main reasons why some musicians do not have a system. They may just never learn how to use one effectively, they may already know how to use them but choose not to, or maybe they never learned how to use them at all.

This can be tricky to identify as an audience member because someone who has no patterning in their songs cannot tell if something sounds good or bad system-based material.

Digital recording equipment

Another piece of music production software that has seen wide use is digital recording equipment. Recording studios typically have large mixers, microphones, pre-amps, and other pieces of recording gear. These are used to gather sound sources such as instruments or vocals into one place.

The audio engineer then uses their computer software to edit and combine these recordings into one cohesive sound. The easiest way to understand this is to think about it like baking a cake! You need the ingredients (or sounds) in your cake before you can make it.

Likewise, once all the parts are combined into one big batch, the next step is to process the recipe. This means taking out background noise, adding reverb, matching equalizers, and so forth. Only at this stage do we call what we have ‘the finished product’.

Music producers use various softwares to achieve this final result including ones for editing, mixing, and EQing. Some of the most popular ones include Pro Tools, Logic, Reaktor, FL Studio, and others. What they all share in common is that they are designed to be user friendly with intuitive interfaces.

Mixing consoles

A mixing console is an integral part of any professional music producer’s toolbox. Consoles have been around for decades, but only now are they being designed with ease-of-use as a top priority.

Consoles used to be very complex, requiring advanced math formulas and cryptic settings that few people could navigate properly. Thankfully, those days are over!

Most modern music production software comes equipped with at least one mixer. Some even have several mixers you can assign different functions to independently!

And while some may consider using external track recorders or recording devices like phones and laptops more professional than using the computer itself, most pros still use a computer as their main source of audio recordings.

This article will talk about how professionals use mixers and what types of mixes they have.

Songwriting programs

There are many apps that can be used to write music or as a writing tool for songwriters. Some of the most popular ones are AUM, Melodyist, Liquidwriter, and UMI Writer.

AUM is an app that was designed specifically for creating songs. The program offers tools such as recording features, sound effects, instruments, vocals, and more. Users are able to create and edit all these audio files inside of the AUM software.

Melodyist has several paid and free packs that contain different modes and feature sets. These include mode areas such as melody, bass line, rhythm, lyrics, and lead guitar. They are very easy to use and understand and have lots of functions.

Liquid writer allows you to compose your own music by letting users add chords and notes into place. This can easily be modified and customized so that it fits their personal style.

Tips for recording music

Recording your songs is a very expensive process, which is why there are so many novice musicians out there! Luckily, however, you do not need to be totally clueless about how to record a song before the world throws it at you!

In this article, we will go over some tips that anyone can use to properly produce their own music. These tips will cover everything from finding quality microphones to learning about mixing modes.

Tips for editing your recording

Recording is an integral part of music production. A song without any audio recordings will be very difficult to create!

Recording comes after writing a script or story (in this case, the lyrics) but before filming (or producing). Like with storytelling, there are different ways to record content.

The tone, style, and genre of your recording can vary depending on what you want to achieve. For instance, if your goal is to perform your songs live, then it’s better to invest in good quality microphones than eGo sticks!

This article will talk about some important tips when it comes to editing and enhancing your recordings.

Tips for composing

In music theory, there are several tools that can be used to help you compose new pieces or improve your current ones. Some of these tools are more intuitive than others, but all work by giving you guidelines or rules to follow when creating music.

A few examples of how musicians use this software include using modes as tritone licks (examples here), establishing rhythm patterns, and writing rhythmic formulas.

There are many types of it applications available online and some even allow you to create your own! The best way to find one that works for you is to test out each one’s functionality and features before buying.

Producing a record

In music production, songs are usually written as a writer(or writers) put together a set of lyrics and then someone else takes those lyrics and turns them into music! This person is referred to as a songwriter.

A musician or producer will take the writing done by the songwriter and add sounds and licks to make the song more complete. These musicians are called producers.

Producers are very important people in the music industry because they create the other half of a song. They write and play the instruments and/or do additional recording for the song.

It is not enough just have a good voice- you need to be able to use that talent to produce some great beats! That’s why becoming a professional producer is like studying to be an artist – you need to know how to draw, paint, or whatever skill applies to what you want to make.

Marketing your music

A marketing tool that many musicians are using these days is the use of it systems. An it system comes with either an app or a web browser plugin, both work similarly. You pick an item to promote, for example, a song, and you earn points as more people interact with that product.

The money you make from it systems goes towards buying advertising space on other sites, t-shirts, etc. For instance, I have seen some it system apps where you can buy 100 points about any given item for $10!

This is great because you not only get paid to advertise something you already own, but you also get extra spending money! It’s like earning a salary shopping online! (Not that I would ever suggest doing anything illegal.)

I know some artists who have made good income off of it systems, and it’s definitely a way to make money without too much effort. But there is always going to be someone out there making fake items and taking all the money for it.
