    Hello Looperman community!

    Over the past year alone, I have learned so much about music production. Not just from the countless YouTube tutorials I have watched, but also from the great members of this website. Even if you don't blatantly help someone out with a certain issue, something as simple as uploading a loop can actually teach someone something they didn't know about before.

    When I started out producing, there was not a concise guide built around how to start off, which is why I began my own. I am almost complete with it (it is a very rudimentary guide) and I have reached around 6,500 words so far. It is rather short with regard to other manuals out there, but I made sure to include only the information that beginning producers need. I also touched a little bit on the construction of an EDM track (electro, dubstep, glitch, etc.) and how to make your track much more filled, since that is a common theme I see among most EDM producers: An empty-sounding track.

    I'm not quite done with it, but when I am, I will have it available for free. Leave a comment if you would be interested in something like this! If requested, I could make other books specific on a certain topic (professional-sounding vocals, music theory that helps your track stand out, mixing, etc).

    If you want to hear what my music sounds like, head on over to my SoundCloud. I have 77 tracks available at the time of me writing!

    What sort of experience and research has gone into your writing?

    What focus does the book have? (DAW, audio editing, MIDI, virtual plugins, hardware synthesis and processing...etc)

    To Spivkurl,

    In my short manual I discuss the bare necessities required to begin music production, and I cover different hardware and software necessary to begin. I compare and contrast two separate DAWs I am very familiar with (Logic Pro X and FL Studio) and I go over multiple VSTs and plugins that I have used and continued to use consistently over my time producing music. I also discuss the importance of an audio interface as well as keyboards/controllers and microphones. I briefly discuss the five core components of a successful EDM track that I have developed myself (Basic drums, cymbals, arpeggio, FX and bass) as well as different effects plugins that can help to improve the overall quality of your music. Beginner material, but even the experienced can learn something new.

    To GregVincey,

    There will be little to no explanation on sound design, mainly because there are so many types of synthesizers and other virtual instruments to use. There are two general lessons I have come up with that can be applied to all different sounds that you make: Design with other sounds present in your track in mind, and when in doubt, go light on the bass. It can easily overpower other instruments and even your whole mix! Thanks for taking interest in the eBook!

    To EDMoney,

    Thanks for the support! My whole goal in writing this is to help others to become better producers. It wasn't easy for me starting out, which is why I want to make it easier for you! I anticipate a release date in late July or August.

    Wow. Thanks for sharing that with us. You are amazing to offer this.
    Because I am an amateur, I have no clue how to produce music. At least not technically. But I learn quickly because I am a techie kind of gal, so I will be very interested in reading your ebook. Also learning about how to put vocals to music is a big skill lack so I can't wait for that too. I would like a chance to learn as you did. Thank you.

    Bless you. -Mad

    To Maddie,

    Thanks for the gracious words! Helping others and knowing that I can make a difference in someone's musical education brings me a happiness that I cannot explain in words. I will briefly cover vocal mixing, as well as some good effects that make all the difference when using vocals. I have listened to some of your posted material on Looperman many times before, and while everyone can learn something they didn't know before, you already have a great wealth of knowledge that is evident in your recordings! If I were to recommend one video that has helped me the most, it would be this one. Make sure to skip to 3:29 -

    If you ever would be interested in collaborating in the near future, I would be all for it!
