Do you ever catch yourself thinking things like, “wow, how does he make that sound?!” while you’re out enjoying some of your favorite artists live? I know we sure do. Sound design plays an extremely important role when producing electronic music. There are of course a plethora of ways one could go about producing electronic music while never designing a sound of their own.
However, we believe the creativity really starts flowing once you break everything down to its core. Using sound packs, loops & samples have proven to be an amazing way to spice up tracks and also an efficient way to get familiar with putting tracks together. Huge benefits come along with fully designing your sound from scratch! Once the base knowledge of sound design has been acquired, then you can truly express your mind and thoughts through various sounds which you have created!
