Music Production Software 04

Music Production Software
I have been playing with music production software ever since I​ downloaded a​ trial version of​ Cool Edit way back in​ high school .​
It was kind of​ clunky,​ but I​ absolutely adored it .​
I​ suddenly had a​ powerful program in​ my hands the​ could do all kinds of​ musical things that I​ had never imagined possible .​
I​ could synthesize my own tones,​ give them different ambiences and effects,​ layer multiple tracks on​ top of​ each other,​ play things backwards – you​ name it .​
By the​ standards of​ today's best music production software,​ It wasn't very powerful,​ but at​ the​ time it​ absolutely blew me away.
Producing music was a​ dream of​ mine at​ the​ time .​
I​ even contemplated going to​ college to​ start a​ music industry career .​
One of​ my brothers was heavily involved in​ the​ music industry as​ a​ local performer in​ LA .​
Although he wasn't really making a​ career out of​ it,​ he did have a​ nice tidy supplementary income from his shows .​
I​ did not have the​ skills to​ be a​ musician,​ but I​ did have an​ ear for music .​
I​ could take a​ good track and make it​ better – a​ skill that all music producers need .​
I decided to​ invest in​ some serious music production software about the​ time I​ left high school .​
I​ was a​ realist .​
Although the​ technology wasn't quite up to​ what it​ is​ today,​ I​ still knew that music production programs were the​ wave of​ the​ future .​
Buying racks and racks of​ studio equipment was prohibitively expensive – particularly for an​ amateur sound recording engineer like myself .​
The software for music production cost several hundred dollars,​ but this was nothing compared to​ the​ prices of​ goods sound recording equipment.
What I​ didn't realize at​ the​ time was how many different varieties of​ music production software there are,​ and how different the​ results were between them .​
a​ typical music production program could run anywhere from 50 dollars to​ 500,​ I​ know to​ have the​ same features .​
Some were basically music recording and mixing programs,​ designed to​ do multiple tracks and clean up the​ sound quality .​
Others were designed for electronic music recording artists .​
They had music sampling,​ advanced effects,​ and MIDI capabilities .​
I​ slowly realized that if​ you​ wanted to​ be a​ recording engineer,​ you​ needed to​ have one of​ everything and be able to​ do it​ all .​
You could not very well have someone come into your studio and not able to​ access the​ equipment he needed .​
I​ decided to​ learn it​ all.
