THE MOST POPULAR MUSIC PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES AND HOW TO HOOK YOUR LISTENERS
Let's say you are a music producer who is just learning the ropes and wants to learn some cool techniques that differentiate you from other amateurs in the industry, you've come to the right place. Artists, genres, and musical eras are differentiated by the sound effects and production techniques that were adopted. Go through the famous tracks of each era and you will find that they have a few things in common. There is some vital detail to note and keep in mind.
To be a good producer, you have to get familiar with some of these popular effects. They will help you identify the best sounds to give your listeners. Knowing these effects will serve as a foundation for all the work that you will do ad a producer. If you are hired by certain people, they may be interested in certain production effects and you must know them.
These production effects include:
❌ Reverse Reverb: The reverse reverb is the process of reversing the reverb tail of any instrument or sound. This effect became popular in many 60s kinds of music. This sound effect is obvious on the drums in Pink Floyd’s “Sheep.” In recent times, this effect is used for vocal passages and can be quite technical to create.
❌ Sidechain: A common problem faced by most producers is frequency masking. This term describes a production sequence when elements with competing frequencies clash over regularly. This scenario is usually popular when using kick drums and basslines. To deal with the problem, you should add a compression plug-in to the bass track and feed the kick output into its sidechain detector.
❌ Gated Snare: Noise gates function similarly to compressors. The main difference is that they quiet the signals that fall below a particular threshold. A lot of guitarists use these gates during their recordings to cut out the fuzz from each strum.
❌ Stuttered vocals: The creation or vocal manipulations have been quite around for some time now; say 10 years. Popular names such as James Blake, Diplo, and Holly Henderson have adopted this production technique. Its origin is dated back to the 80s. Pitch shifting and time stretching vocals: These two special effects are vocal audio-related. Pitch shifting involves changing the pitch of a vocal while maintaining the same playback speed. Time stretching may quicken or slow down the playback without any influence on the sound. As a producer, you must be vast with the above-listed production techniques as they will give you considerable leverage to take on numerous projects. You'll be the best producer in no time.
