If you’re a beginner home-based music producer, the How To Make Electronic Music With A Computer article by Petri Suhonen might be a great starting point for your future learning process.
I decided to write down some guidelines on how to make electronic music (although these tips may apply to other musical genres as well, not just electronic music) – what hardware you should get, which music making software you should pick, how to get a hang of the electronic music styles, etc.
A little info about myself is that electronic music production has been my longtime hobby for years and I’ve been creating tunes on such genres as trance, downtempo, ambient and experimental. Some of my songs has been released commercially through record labels and has also been used in a film project.
The article covers the basic aspects of setting up a decent home studio, as well as some important tips on how to start producing your first tunes.
From things like choosing a computer and proper monitors, to basic mixing tips and song structure, everything is covered in an easy to read manner and supported with useful links for those who want to learn more.
