Why you should learn how to produce your own music...
Do you want to make your own music from the songs you've written? If so, then perhaps one of your biggest dreams is to record an album or EP that sounds like what you hear on the radio. To achieve this goal, however, it can be helpful to learn how to produce your own music. Here's some reasons why...
You can explore new sounds.
You can recreate whatever you hear in your head in a DAW (digital audio workstation e.g. Logic/Ableton). Or even experiment with sounds that you would never normally imagine to create an unexpected sonic landscape.
You’ll save money.
Because... you only actually need a basic set up to record and produce your own songs. Rather than an expensive studio. A USB microphone, laptop, mixing headphones, and DAW will do the trick! So long as you know how to use them.
You’ll spend less time waiting to record.
You can just plug your gear in and play away day or night rather than having to book a studio and an engineer. Cost and time effective. Woohoo!
You’ll be able to record anywhere.
You can record at home, in your garage or any other space that you have access to. You could even record in the car if you want to! In fact, having a portable mini studio setup is one of the perks of being able to produce your own music.
You'll learn a skill for life... and it's really fun!
Once you've learnt how to produce once, you never need to learn again. Teach a man to fish and all that... And you'll have the best time doing it. What's not to love?
If you’re a songwriter, it can be difficult to get good quality recordings of your work, especially if you don’t want to pay for studio time or hire someone else to produce them for you. But with all the technology available today there’s no reason why can't record your own songs yourself! Cool, right?
