10 Tips for Succesful Production of Dance Music
By Jaroslaw Golowacz
1. Get the right monitoring.
For dance, bigger monitors = better monitors. Bigger recording room = better room. Remember that dj in club will play your track on big loudspeakers. If you mix your track on a small monitors or headphones, it may happen that your track won’t be good for club and dj will not play it.
Anyone born during the sixties remembers the decade digital music swallowed pop. The transition from weary rock to synth pop was as fast as the technology that fed it would allow. In 1980, Devo, Blondie and Joy Division topped the charts with their digital pop synth sound and video clips that boasted special effects made possible only by digital video technology. Drum kits were reduced to a single lone stand with a thin boy in a striped shirt playing in time to a pre-recorded overproduced sound of a Roland drum machine. The theatrical piano replaced by a sorry single digital keyboard. Even the guitar was reduced to a mere accompaniment to the digital pre-recorded sequences of a machine that could reproduce the sounds of a thousand instruments.
You want to record your guitar, make your own riffs, music, etc. You want to plug your guitar into your computer? How to connect the guitar to the computer the right and best way? What software? Which audio interface? What about your favorite guitar effects? What computer? Where to start? It can be overwhelming.
Having used Cubase since before the inception of V.S.T instruments (version 3.4) i look upon myself as an above average and experienced user.
When I heard about Cubase 4 being released I was jittery with excitement regarding all the new features and advanced tools which were promised. After eagerly awaiting its release I went out and purchased the product hot off the shelf.
I have now been using Steinberg’s Cubase 4 for over 6 months and have to say it’s superb. The new mixer functions alone blow me away, the way the routing is set up is so intuitive that it feels almost too simple, as if you have missed something.
Did you know that you can record a CD using your home computer - with very basic equipment?
Did you know that you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to get a demo recording done? and you shouldn’t need to spend your hard earned dollars on equipment either!
When I was in my first band and we wanted to have a demo recording done we would spend hundreds of dollars going into studios and getting tracks laid down.
It would take hours and they’d have these huge 24 track analog recording machines and enormous mixing desks that looked really impressive.
