A quiz on the "Gettin' Familiar" video
We start our song off with some drums. In this video I show you how to pick out some suitable drums and put them into the song.
This quiz covers some fundamental basics need to get your song started.
It's all about that bass! In this video we cover laying down a nice bass track, that goes well with the drums. Don't worry, you don't need to know how to play the bass, this is more of a drag-and-drop type action.
This quiz covers what pitches you should use to always ensure a good song.
We now add some more instruments to help give the song some body and make it sound like an actual professional sounding track.
A breakdown in a song is where you take some instruments away and lower the energy a bit before you go into the grand finale, high energy ending. So that is what this video is about, making a breakdown.
In this quiz we test your knowledge of some of the editing techniques covered in the course.
A song needs to end properly to give it a definitive conclusion. In this video we craft the ending of our song so we have a completed masterpiece!
In the first section, we made a Techno song. In this section we start on a rock song with some more traditional type sounding instruments.
You need to be able to make tweaks to your song so that all the instruments flow together nicely. The mixer helps us do that. I show you what it is and how to use it. It's easy!
In this section, we test your knowledge of what the mixer does.
Effects can give your instruments the polish and brilliance they need to sound great. I teach you how to apply them to your song in this video. The result is a professional sounding song.
This quiz tests your knowledge of what you just learned about effects
Just a few more tweaks and we are done. We cover putting the finishing touches on your song in this video.
To use the song in your projects, you need to export it out of the program we are using. I show you how to do that here.
This is a list of keyboard shortcuts that will help you perform actions faster in Magix Music Maker if you wish to.
Now what? Well, it's time now to make your own song. So get to it!
You made it to the end! And in this video I show my appreciation for your attention and persistence to get there!
I thank you so much for taking this journey with me and I hope you achieved everything you set out to in taking this course. Rock on!
Hi I'm Steve. I have been a content creator online since 2005 helping others to improve their skills in areas ranging from business to hardware to audio to graphics. I've written books, created training videos, done hundreds of podcasts and really get a kick out of seeing others do better in life with new knowledge learned. Who wouldn't?
And if you want to know how to podcast, I'm your guy. I've been having great success in podcasting since starting my first show from scratch in 2008 which has now boomed into full podcasting network complete with 6 shows, that gets over 50,000 downloads a month.
As far as multimedia, I have been cranking out products since the first time I heard the word "Photoshop!" I create all my own graphics, music and videos for my own sites and projects. I've learned a thing or two (or three), through the years and I'd love to help you sharpen your graphic, video, and audio skills so you can make the coolest content.
When anyone asks me what the trick is to being successful online I tell them "Be Awesome." That's my best advice; simple but true. If you just be awesome you will stand out from the sea of content out there (mostly crap) and get noticed. I have the knowledge of what it takes to help you "be awesome" and create amazing products. Let me share that knowledge with you!
