Whether you are a professional composer making money with your music, or someone who creates music as a night time passion for fun, streamlining your production process is vital if you ever want to complete a project in a timely manner. Using royalty free music loops can dramatically help with this process both creatively and economically. Here’s how…
Check out the following 5 ways using music loops can streamline a music production project:
Use music loops to spark your creativity…
Having a healthy catalog of music loops will dramatically reduce the dreaded writer’s block experience. If you are producing a song or instrumental from scratch, and no ideas are coming to your brain; pull up your music loops, start chopping, or simply begin adding parts to the already established loop. You’ll have a hot new piece of music underway in no time.
Save time with drum loops…
Instead of programming your own drum patterns, add authenticity to your drum tracks by using pre-existing royalty free drum loop patterns. Get creative, layer up your drums with other drum loop combinations. Having great drums for you track can be achieved in under five minutes, and with enough libraries, your combinations can be endless.
Add authenticity to your music using a music loop library…
While music producers are often competent in one or more musical instruments, in general they do not possess the extensive knowledge of an instrument like a full time dedicated player does. Finding the right music loop library for any instrument that
was recorded by a world class player, using a world class instrument in a world class studio, will add a world class element to your track. Plus, any musician will tell you that collaborating with others is one of the best ways to expand your creativity. Think of a
loop library as a fellow musician you are collaboration with, who’s throwing out ideas for you to feed off of!
Upgrade your sound quality with professional music loops…
Music loop titles released by reputable sample sound companies are produced using both instruments, as well as recording and processing equipment that is often times outside the price range of many ‘in the box’ music producers (producers who produce
the majority of their music using DAW software). Using music loops from these companies, especially live recorded instrumental music loops, will add a warm analog hi resolution vintage sound to your music production at a fraction of the cost it would take a
producer to record these instruments themselves.
Increase your output as a music producer…
Many great songs are formulated through a collaborative process involving a song writer or beat maker who provides an artist or lyricist with a mapped out instrumental track (sometimes with a hook and lyrics, sometimes without) to write to. Once the song is
under way, often times the writing team or record label will turn to a music producer, who has the expertise (and patience) to perfectly polish the song and make it ready for commercial release. For music producers who are looking to increase the number of songs they release, instead of collaborating with instrumentalists or beat makers, can now turn to what are called multi-track construction loop sets.
These construction loop sets are essentially royalty free, fully constructed instrumental tracks including multi-tacks of all the individual parts of the song looped out, and can serve as the instrumental foundation for music producers to use when collaborating with artists, song writers or lyricists.
Since the construction loop sets are all multi-tracked, producers have mixing freedom, plus they can interchange loops, replace sounds or use just portions of the sets, giving them enormous creative freedom. And since construction loop sets come in many
popular genres of music, music producers can call upon them when looking to expand into different musical styles they may not normally produce in.
Music loops have become an essential tool for the modern music producer. From the biggest hit makers to the amateur hobbiest, virtually every music producer is using this powerful weapon in their creative process. A strong arsenal of high quality music loops will spark new creativity, improve the overall sonic quality of a music mix, and help meet the tightest of production deadlines.
