Can you believe it’s been a whole 15 years since YouTube’s website went live? We’ve come a long way. February 14th, 2005.

A website where people could easily post and share videos – a world of possibility. No doubt even the wisest o...

This new Travis Scott track is actually completely artificial intelligence (video)

You wouldn’t be alone if you heard this and thought that Travis Scott has a new song out but he hasn’t actually been anywhere near this track. We’ve talked about artificial intelligence and music creation a bit on the blog before. We’re all seeing the leaps in capabilities that AI technology can do on the internet and making music is possibly one of the more underwhelming parts of that. Well perhaps not anymore, as this digital company have just created a pitch perfect sounding Travis S...

How to write music digitally

While the most difficult part of creating music is often taking those initial steps of create something from nothing, getting these ideas from paper or mind on to your computer should be a relatively simple process. A DAW’s (digital audio workstation’s) primary function is to give the user an intuitive interface to record or write music and easy editing tools. Depending on your background, you may want to pick up a MIDI keyboard. This will save you hours of drawing each note by note, in...

How producers are mastering tracks for music streaming services (video)

In the age of music streaming we are hearing music differently. Not just with where it comes from, but quite literally with how it sounds. You might not know, though keen ears will probably have noticed, that streaming services normalise tracks. This means the mix is altered, whether the artist or producer likes it or not, so that all of the music on a service follows a similar level – it’s normalised. This video explains what that means, how streaming services are doing it, and most i...
