So long as you have the right software, you will be able to create entire digital tracks for sporting events and other venues using just your computer.
You computer will need to be powerful enough to run a DAW (digital audio workstation) and it must also have enough space in order to archive your entire sound library. Once you are equipped, you’ll be able to start producing music with your own original melody and sounds.
Here are the top five steps for creating digital music for sporting events:
Collect All The Necessary Equipment
First and foremost, you need to collect all of the equipment needed to create your own music. DAW’s can reproduce (digitally) several instruments, but samples of actual live recordings will still sound more realistic.
As a result, you will need equipment such as electric guitars, controls, microphones, keyboards, and synthesizers. Since this equipment can be individually quite expensive, prioritize it based on what you need most, and accumulate everyone once at a time.
2. Learn About MIDI
MIDI, which stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, is a simple protocol that can record and play back music over digital synthesizers. It essentially transmits information about how your music is produced. You will need to search for an ultimate list of free MIDI files in order to begin using MIDI for your music.
3. Plan Out Your Track
You must plan out your track to avoid creating music is that is oversaturated or messy. Set your metronome during the planning phase of the track, and keep the number of vocals and instruments down to six at the very most.
During this phase, you should also research other pieces of digital sports music and listen to them to get inspiration.
4. Come Up With An Original Melody
As the central piece of your track, the melody is the part of our music that people will remember and hum to. The melody needs to be created by either the lead vocal, the main instrument, or both of them together.
You will also need to sync your melody with your bassline’s pulse. The top choices for instruments to create your melody will be the guitar, piano, trumpet, violin, or the trombone.
5. Wrap Up The Track
Finally, it’s time to wrap up your track. You will complete your music by assembling all of the different pieces of the track in the Daw, and then fit them together in a seamless fashion. Keep your volume low, and take the time to make small adjustments until the music turns out the way you want it to. Your DAW should come with a finishing and compression tool to ensure that there is a consistent volume throughout the course of your music.
