I’m starting this thread because it’s so hard to find quality and complete tutorials on the internet for creating this awesome music genre! Since AudioJungle is full of talented people who already mastered this, I thought why not asking here so that me and other beginners/or advanced folks can learn from the best
which DAW are you using, or find best for this type of music?
do you use midi controller and record midi with it, or do you just use a computer mouse on the piano roll to write music.
which libraries do you use the most?
the MOST important thing which is extremely hard to find anywhere when it comes to cinematic music is how to use EQ (since it often gets muddy or with too much mid frequency), how and where to use compression, how to create depth with reverb without getting everything messed up like I do with Altiverb , how to master the track (I suppose it’s a bit different process from mastering EDM)
I would actually buy quality tutorials with these things but there’s nothing out there…
What inspires you, which artists, or anything else worth mentioning?
you can even describe the process of creating one of your tracks, that would be cool
AudioJungle has really forced me to work hard on my production skills and I’ve noticed that since I’m trying so hard to achieve the quality sound production, I don’t have as much ideas for the actual melodies as I did before I worried about these things. It’s weird because I had tons of ideas when I didn’t care too much about the production quality. If I could only master these techniques and make a few templates in FL Studio so that I can just open them and start composing with nothing to get in the way of my ideas, it would be great.
Please don’t hesitate to write/ask anything in this thread regardless of your composing/production level. Let’s just have fun and discuss these things
