I am pretty much a beginner when it comes to music. I have had little experience with guitar and drums and am interested in what it takes to start developing sound tracks. I am very interested in Electronic, Hip Hop and Dubstep music.

Can someone please point me in the direction listing what I should do. I am sure that this question will be of great to use to other people in the same boat as me.

Kind Regards,

Kocci

Hi kocci!

Its pretty hard to point out how to start. First of all you would need some kind of sequencer (Logic, cubase etc) and a computer. Second is just begin to make music. Experiment with sounds, melodies and whatever you can think of just to get you started.

I started of by listening to music and tried to copy tracks as near the original as possible. I think thats a great way to start since you learn what others do and how to arrange instruments with each other.

I believe there are tons of great articles on music making on the internet but from my point of view trial and error is the way to do it. At least in the beginning! Its hard to read about something that in that matter isn’t technical. Just get started, do music listen to music and try to figure out what works for you. :)

What can help you a lot is listen to other`s works. You will get inspired by them. Get your hand dirty in a recording software (Fl studio, Reason, Cubase , etc).

:) Work , work and work. It takes time bro` !

Try to learn at least one of the most used digital audio workstations, logic pro, pro tools, cubase, ecc.. Start with simple songs and then grow up to more sophisticated. Pay attention to what gives you good vibrations and what doesn’t. Use the better instruments you have, real and virtual… Remember, only the better. Make a sound selection and focus on the mood you have to reach Be original When finished… Listen and relax!
