Music Production, DJ, and Audio Engineering at I Love Music Academy Module
DAW Ableton Live

Ableton Live is a software music sequencer and digital audio workstation for macOS and Windows. In contrast to many other software sequencers, Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as music production with tools for composing, recording, arranging, mixing and mastering, as shown by Ableton’s companion hardware product, Ableton Push. It is also used by DJs, as it offers a suite of controls for beat-matching, crossfading and other effects used by turntablists, and was one of the first music applications to automatically beat-match songs.

DAW Apple Logic Pro X

Logic Pro is Apple’s professional music production software. The software offers audio recording functionality alongside world-class virtual instruments, effects, and thousands of high-quality audio samples and loops. It features a one-time license purchase with feature-rich updates that are free life-long for Apple users. A favourite among composers and home studio professionals – Logic Pro remains one of the leading software suites in the music industry.

Steinberg Cubase DAW for Music Production
DAW Steinberg Cubase

Cubase is a popular cross-platform (macOS and Windows) DAW that is primarily MIDI and plugin instrument based. A pioneer in Audio Technology having introduced VST’s as well as a bridge between Audio devices and software in the early 90’s, Steinberg Cubase is arguably the most powerful music production DAW when it comes to MIDI, and it is no surprise that it is the DAW of choice for legendary film composers such as Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL. Similar in the workflow and UI of Logic Pro, it has a very large user base among PC users.

What is Music Production?

Music production is the art, science and business of making music. Learn music production and all aspects of creating music to ensure it is of the highest standards and is marketable. A Record producer or Music producer is responsible for audio production, in totality.

Traditionally a music producer was responsible to oversee the entire production process of music and was responsible for every aspect and decision-making, responsible for the music album from the get-go. A recording engineer, a beat maker, an artist, a vocalist or an instrumentalist were all a part of the production process, all working under the direction of the music producer or in tandem with the producer.

The Music Producer was often hired by a label or artist for his understanding and ideas as a specialist of the music genre and would be the decision maker for the music, being in charge of everything.

Choosing the artists involved, recordings the songs that would go into an album; co-writing, co-direct, editing, making alterations and ideating to improve the quality and marketability of the music as well as being involved with choosing the right studio, the beat makers or DAW specialists, the right engineering, the right mix and mastering engineering and finally the marketing and sale of the music. The Music producer was the fixer, manager, and business head, all wrapped into one; and possibly the artists/musician as well involved in the production.

Advancements in Music Technology

As Digital Audio Workstations advanced into wholesome digital studios, increasing the capabilities of the software and making it the centre of the entire music production process, the music producers started to merge all the earlier roles of the production process into one. As Music went Electronic or Digital and DAW’s more accessible, it gave rise to a stream of digital musicians and electronic music producers. Today a music producer is a one-man army, handling complex job roles on his/her own.

Electronic Dance Music genres empower music producers to be solo artists. The broad responsibility of a music producer has not really changed in 15 years, although the work execution has drastically. The modern music producer is the artist/musician himself and may be skilled as an audio engineer. He writes music and produces music, all on his own on the DAW, and may or may not collaborate with other professionals.

Today, Electronic music producers must also be performers to earn a living. Additionally, they need to possess engineering skills to stand out in the music industry. Do not limit your skills to making music on DAWs alone, skill up for a better career

What is Electronic Music?

Electronic music is music that employs circuitry based music technology in its creation, production or performance. Arguably all music today is electronic. Electronic Music Production however refers to making music Digitally on a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW).
