Any tips/ways to practice arrangement?
Think of it like writing a story. It needs a 'dramatic arc' - a beginning, a middle, and an end.
Make sure you know what you're trying to say before you start but digress if you feel like it.
Try to make sure there's always something interesting going on and try to place yourself in the position of the listener, who doesn't care how clever your effects chain is, or how long it took you to create the bass sound. Honestly, nobody gives a shit.
Don't stick with a shit sound because it took you six hours to make. If it's shit, be honest and chop it out.
Don't throw all your best sounds into the first two minutes and then waffle on for another five. Keep something good for the end.
Don't be afraid of breakdowns - they're an artform all of their own.
Unless you're into Psy-Trance, of course, in which case just go 'bop-dugga-bop-dugga-bop-dugga-bop-dugga' for six minutes and call it a day.
If you could have some clever robots to assist you in your music creation, what would you told them to do ? they couldn't make teaOtt responded on 06/13/2018 Next question
I'm curious about how you choose and ad the vocals to the rest of your tracks? i make tracks but when i want to ad vocals i don't know where to start.My voice is shit so should i find an acapella and fit my track to it , or create a song then sing a theme whit my shitty voice and then replace it with various samples of voices picked here and here. or maybe should i be friends with singers? ad vocals seems to me difficult because i want it to be forefront but i struggle to execute the idea in a way that sound realistic , any tips .
