Metal Mixing Tip – Make A Music Production Template
The Mixing Tip in this video is almost too obvious.
Maybe that is why it will be a game changer if you do not do this yet….
In order to spend more time making music, and less time in production tech land, you need to make a template that you use to create songs.
This template in your Digital audio workstation (DAW) (Cubate, Pro Tools, FL Studio etc…) needs to bring up your main instruments largely premixed, pre routed, with most if not all effects already on them.
If your drums are going to sound the same all the time, do everything to them and put them in your template.
Use synths or samples?
Have a bunch of synths that you use a lot in your template with an inspiring sound on each.
Music creation and home recording is all about logistics and workflow. You want to let your creativity flow, not wrestle with audio production that is the same constantly and you could have done ahead of time.
Make a template, save yourself countless hours.
I will go through my template in more depth over various videos but the important action you need to take now is to make some kind of template.
Get it started good, bad, or ugly it needs to exist.
Make more than one if you want, just make them.
