The initial synth hooks and loops have been created using MIDI and virtual instruments in our last episode. I like to convert my synth tracks to audio. Working with audio at some point in your production workflow offers many benefits and here in Episode 6 of Master the Art of Music Creation, I will explain the advantages of this way of working.
We will cover Bounce In Place (BIP), grouping tracks for editing, AudioSuite plug-ins for reverse effects, as well as some other cool edit features and how you can use audio plug-ins. By the time we are done the synths sound much brighter, wider, right up in your face and what I really like is they sound much more aggressive with the processing.
During this episode I will be using the song ‘Words to Say’ from the South African band The Arrows. You may remember the song when it was featured in the From Creation to Final Mix series. Let’s get started.
