In the past if an individual wanted to be musically creative they had limited options, learn to play an instrument, sing, or write a song. With modern day computers becoming more and more powerful, and music software and hardware becoming less and less expensive a new group of musicians have emerged, the electronic music composer, producer, and audio engineer. Even those with little theoretical knowledge and limited instrumental ability can create great sounding musical works. In many ways studying music production is more difficult than learning a traditional instrument, and yet in some ways it’s easier. The options can be overwhelming, and the attention to detail needed to create a music production can be challenging to grasp, however with a drag of an audio loop you can begin your musical journey creating great music. There is nothing easy about producing music, it takes the same dedication, practice, and time as learning a traditional instrument. In the same way a traditional musician would study an instrument, the electronic musicians of today studies and practices manipulating hardware and software, frequencies, tone, and timbre. This area of study is complex and rewarding, extremely detailed, and requires a great deal of skill just as with any other instrumentalist. The process is intellectually stimulating, and allows you to see the full musical picture by putting together everything you have learned. The biggest benefit is being able to fully realize your musical creations as you take them from imagination to reality. It’s never been easier than now to put together a home studio capable of creating commercially releasable music.
