Let’s take a look and listen to the song we will be creating together.
In this video we will put down our first idea. This is always the hardest for me. We will also talk house keeping.
The next idea is bass. It’s sound will give our listeners am idea of what genre and style our song will be.
It’s important… really important. It may make or break the song. We can take advantage of some built in tools that will help us make it feel good.
Next let’s add a clap on the 2 & 4. We will also setup parallel compression for drums and a few other things.
We can start rounding out the first section of our song. We will add a few different ideas to keep it fresh.
Next let’s add movement for the chorus. This video is all about the 16th note.
Now let’s pull all the stops and get punchy. We will be creating new drum sounds for the first chorus.
In this video let’s switch up the chord progression and bring up the energy with new chord elements.
Now that we have a foundation, we can chase after the hook. Hopefully, it will be good enough to get stuck in our listener’s head.
Part of the creative process is capturing ideas as they come. This is so important. Who knows where these ideas will lead us.
Let’s finish the breakdown idea with a fresh melody.
80’s toms! Need I say more?
Now let’s shake things up. We need a new chord progression and instrumentation to freshen our palates.
More ideas to round out our bridge. These will help us build intro the upcoming chorus.
A lot of times the last chorus is special. Let’s modify current elements and add new ideas to make this part of the song stand out.
Now we can begin the process of finalizing the arrangement. We will record our ideas into arrangement view from session view. Then we will begin finalizing what goes where.
While working on the verses I wanted to add more interest. In this video we will add the last melodic idea to accentuate our claps.
Since we’ve been adding effects and processing as we go, this video is all about automation.
This final video will take a look at master bus effects. This will be a little mixing and a little mastering. We want to add a final layer of polish to the song.
