Let’s review 5 tips that you as a producer can make use of to produce high-quality music:
- Get Organized
This is probably one of the most ignored production tips and yet it’s one of the most important things to do. Producing a song involves organizing a series of sounds in a particular order to form a final track. Learn to get into the habit of grouping and labeling your sounds right from the beginning of your production project.
It’s common to get into the flow when starting the production of a song but when you’re halfway through and have no proper organization, it gets hard to finish off the track well and have it in high quality.
Ensure that you keep your tracks well organized, labeled, and color-coded to attain a final high-quality song.
- Develop Your Sound Design Skills
Sound design is a major ingredient in producing high-quality music. You can build and master your sound design skills using presents as a learning source and then reverse engineer them.
Take a preset and deconstruct it and then assemble it back together. Doing this several times will help you discover and master techniques which in turn make your art of production better. With improved sound design skills, you’ll be able to produce high-quality music.
- Experiment With Automation Automation can potentially skyrocket your sound design up to a whole new level. Most of the awesome tracks that are rocking the airwaves were formed from experimentation. As a producer, you need to experiment with automation. Go into synth and test out different ideas and see what you come up with. This is a pathway to creating high-quality music.
- Improve Your Songwriting Skills
Songwriting determines whether people listen to your song to the end or turn it off right at the start. To improve your songwriting and structure, practice reverse engineering the structures. Get some of the best-structured songs, load them in your DAW and study how the structure is set up.
Keep improving on your songwriting and structuring skills and then implement the new ideas you learn into your projects. You’ll end up producing high-quality music that will be loved by many.
- Perfect Your Mixing And Mastering Skills
Ensure that you have the best possible samples for each sound whenever you’re mixing and mastering. Use the best of everything, from the FX to the hi-hats and don’t let anything go unnoticed. This will make your mixing and mastering process a whole lot easier.
Avoid over-tweaking a sample with multiple EQs. Choose a different sample instead that’s close to what you want. Once you have chosen the best samples, ensure that each of them is in its place within the composition and mix and is placed in such a way that it makes the track sound unified and gives it a good flow. If this is done correctly, you’ll end up producing high-quality music.
