Distinction Between Music Production and Sound Engineering
Music production entails creating the music from scratch and sound engineering involves mixing the totally different instruments together so it sounds nice.
I will reveal both facets as they relate to D.J.'ing however more so on the production side.
For many established D.J.'s, that means those who have been D.J.'ing for a while whether it is of their bedroom or within the club, music production is the following logical step. Because D.J.'s play so many different types of music they arrive throughout lots of beats and sounds. This evokes some D.J.'s to pattern those beats and sounds and make up their own songs.
This is the beginning of the music production stage. There are 3 levels to music production: pre-production, music production and submitproduction.
Stage 1 Pre-production
The music production stage is the crafting of the new song. I call this the pre- production stage because you're just experimenting with music. This is the place music from the file or mp3 is sampled using a sampler or drum machine like an Akai MPC. However before you may pattern and produce music you must make certain your gear is properly linked:
So that I can sample sounds into my Akai drum machine I've my Technics turntable going into the phono enter of my stereo unit. Then I take the phono out of my stereo unit to the input of my MPC 3000. My MPC gets linked to my Akai DPS 24.Then the DSP 24 is related to the CD enter of the stereo unit so I can hear what I produce.
With the intention to sample I've to make certain I select the phono option on my stereo unit. After I sample the sounds I've to switch to the CD option on my stereo unit so I can hear the playback from the drum machine. As soon as you've got completed your musical arrangement and saved all of your work and you're glad with it you possibly can move into the half of the pre-production phase.
During this phase is while you usher in artists to perform on you track. This is the place you begin to rearrange the track or music you created with the artists. This collaboration interval enables you and the artists to make minor adjustments to the music and the lyrics. You may also add to or take away components of the track reminiscent of adding additional drums or strings. The artists will apply their music utilizing your track. Once this is very tight you move to the studio to put the music and the vocals on separate recording tracks. The reason why you wish to observe earlier than you get to the studio is because studio time could be very expensive and you don't need to waste time training in. That's the place you'll want to focus your whole time making sure the music and vocals are recorded cleanly without pops and clicks.
Stage 2 Music Production
While you get to the studio this is where the sound engineer comes into play. This particular person is accountable for making sure all of you music sounds excellent. These individuals have years of experience. Some D.J./Producers additionally like to engineer their own music because they know how they need their music to sound. If this is the case then the sound engineer simply assists the D.J. with mixing the music and using the studio equipment.
The blending part of the music production part is finished within the studio where the entire music tracks and vocal tracks are blended together to present you what you hear in your CD.
Every musical instrument and vocal track is mixed and adjusted utilizing what's called a mixing board like my Akai DPS24 only bigger or software primarily based mixing console like Pro Tools.
Stage three Postproduction
After the blending is finished the publishproduction process begins. The final mix is taken to what's called a Mastering Studio the place specialized equipment is used to carry out the very best sound. When this process is completed the final results of the track are then pressed on CD or vinyl and sold to the customer.
