How do I Become an Electronic Music Producer ?



What is Electronic Music Production?


Before we look at learning how to produce, let's discuss exactly what an electronic music producer does.


Electronic music production can be split into three key skills or “actions." *Creation. *Arrangement. *Refinement. In short, electronic music production is the creation, arrangement, and refining of sounds and musical ideas.


Hmm...Let's look at each of these individually.


The Creation Phase


"Let's say you're cooking dinner tonight. The first thing you do is to gather and prepare ingredients. Maybe you chop some onions, prepare a stock, marinade some meat… This is the creation phase of cooking your meal." In the world of music production, it's creating and finding your core ideas. Your Ingredients: melodies, drum sounds, vocal hooks/phrases, chord progressions, and so forth.


The Arrangement Phase


Once you've prepped your ingredients, you bring them together. You start cooking. This is the arrangement phase. You're arranging your ingredients. Combining them. Consolidating them into something consumable.

It's the same with music production. Melodies, beats, sounds, vocals... no one wants to listen to a bunch of random ideas splattered on a musical canvas.

They want to listen to something that has structure. Something that follows a sequence and makes sense. So, during this phase, you'll take the ideas that you created and discovered in the creation phase, and arrange them into something consumable. You take your ideas and sounds, then combine them to create a song.


The Refinement Phase


You've almost finished cooking your meal. A quick taste test reveals the need for more flavor, so you add some seasoning. Finally, it's time to present your meal.

If your dish looks good on the plate, people (including yourself) will enjoy it more. So you spend time on presentation. You use a nice white plate. You arrange it so it looks appealing. You want your hard work to show not just in how it tastes, but also how it looks.


Okay! Now, This is the refinement or "presentation" phase.


Once you've arranged your musical ideas, sounds, and everything else into a song, you need to make it presentable.

You make refinements. You tweak sounds to make them fit better together. You make edits to ensure that the song flows well and that everything is in the right place. You adjust levels so nothing is too loud or too quiet.

And then, your song is finished.


Yeah, You can do this all yourself


In the past, an artist would spend time coming up with ideas. Then a producer would get involved.

And the refinement stage? Mixing? Mastering? You might have several people working on the project. Costly? You bet. But now you can do all of this on a #laptop and #headphones.
