Now, here is a project the world desperately needs! Vinyltryk is a record-pressing plant in Denmark, servicing both local and international artists and labels with everything from long runs to custom, limited-edition pressings.
The Røde Podcaster is a dynamic microphone specifically designed for podcasters. With a tight polar pattern and frequency response custom-tuned for recording vocals, the Podcaster delivers broadcast-quality sound with a plug-and-play USB connection. An internal shock mount helps reduce noise when adjusting microphone placement. Equipped with a 3.5mm stereo headphone output and built-in volume control, the Podcaster has everything you need to get started quickly.
At the opposite end of traditional form is through-composition — essentially a style of composition that doesn’t repeat sections of music, lyrics, and might not even repeat melodic themes. It could be argued that the lyrics of “All My Friends” is through-composed.

To change your tempo, double-click the tempo box and type in the tempo of your song. Follow the same instructions by double-clicking the time signature or key to change them.
Anyone who’s ready to take a deep dive into the world of mixing. You should be aware of mixing’s role in the music production process, but you don’t need to know anything about how to mix to take this course. You should be able to record audio at home and/or be comfortable creating audio in your DAW of choice. Once again, you can be a practitioner of any style of music, and you should get super excited when someone gives you a new song to listen to.
The problem is many of us don’t really think that way. My personal musical goal right now is to play piano like Errol Garner. How the heck do you start on that journey? Well, it begins with a process of breaking things down into smaller and smaller steps until you wind up with something that can be realistically accomplished in a practice session (or a few).
For me, one way to do this is to pick a certain amount of time and decide I’m going to do focused practice for that length of time. Even better if I have concrete goals laid out for that time, such as “play the left hand to ‘Stompin’ at the Savoy’ successfully six times in a row.” When the time limit is up, I can happily jam around on whatever I want and let my mind wander whither it will.

It can be used across so many genres of music, shown below on Oskar Offermann’s track, “Find Yourself.” He uses the Space Echo on the vocals and it seems to also be used on a lot of the percussion.
If, like many of us, you’ve read Sound on Sound’s fantastic audio production articles on the web, you’ve probably already learned something from Mike Senior. His experience writing for a wide audience of relative newbies, as well as seasoned pros in the industry, translates well into this more comprehensive volume. The book specifically covers mixing, not recording, starting with the assumption that you have a tracked project in front of you ready to mix (or that you’ve just received from a client).
To isolate and mix Electronic Drum Kit percussion parts, you’ll need to select kits listed under the Drum Machine section. To isolate and mix organic Drum Kit percussion parts, choose from any of the kits listed under the Producer Kits section. In theory, you could build drum parts individually, one track at a time, using the combined kit instruments, but this method will take far more time and will be much harder to compose intuitively through.
The groove may be simple, but its relationship to the song’s chord progression is not. To learn much more about chords and harmony and how they build the emotional structure of a song, you can check out our new course Unlocking the Emotional Power of Chords, but consider this a primer in case you’re ready.
As producers, we need to be open to letting collaborators steer the ship for us every now and then. Without giving our music that freedom, we run the very real risk of sounding stale. Any track I’ve made that I am truly proud of has featured someone doing something I can’t do myself and in a way that makes rethink the composition process entirely. We should strive to surround ourselves with those whose skills and visions are different from our own. And it’s up to us to adapt their contributions in order to suit our overall vision and take our music to new heights.
