From Chef To Music Producer
Im going on a new and KRAZIE journey.
Thats right, from Chef to Music Producer.
Want to know what the really crazy thing is?
I have no musical experience other then just listening. I have picked up a guitar before but most of my musical background is messing around because a friend had a instrument.
It was exactly 50 days ago when I began teaching myself drums. Figured why not since I am stuck being in this LOCKDOWN.
About 30 days in I became bored and decided to see what making hip-hop beats would be like. After watching a few videos I decided I need to purchase a Midi Controller(see pics below). After a week of learning the basics of the software functionalities, which was awful by the way, I said eff this and just started playing then editing. Its honestly the best way in my opinion.
Since making a youtube channel I've noticed many quit before even playing there new midi controller.
And here we are today.
As I learn all these new things that arent kitchen related I will be sharing my experience with everyone. I hope you will come a bit further and ride along on this journey with me.
Ok lets begin.
The track below is combined with some random videos I got from YouTube to be used as filler so don't pay to much attention to that. This is music only no vocals.
HERES THE SONG
As of yesterday this was my second complete song. The first song I was lucky enough to sell and I will do a follow up for what its used for and when I can share it.
Now for those who want some more info on the software I used I'll break it down for ya.
Okay, For this song I used the Reaper Daws, Scaler 2 (free trail version)with the Mini Grand piano & Hybrid 3 and for the drum loop I made that with Mpc Beats. FYI, most of these are free. Hybrid 3 and Scaler 2 cost money. I used my labtop, asio for the sound and the akai mpk mini mk3(midi controller) ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
and the m-audio 49 keystation (midi keyboard controller)
