How to record your music professionally

You can work with hired space at a studio consisting of professional equipment and an experienced sound engineer. This should make your music production fast and efficient. The more effort you put into planning what type of studio you are going to use the more result your creative master piece will flourish. Depending on what your trying to achieve you might need an instrumental or sound track when recording. You might need to find a producer for this or independently create a sound track yourself. It is recommended that you use a studio and record the music that you have created such as an acoustic recording. For example you play a piano and sing, this performance is then recorded to make an acoustic song.


You can also create music at home using a professional digital sequencing software designed for music creation. Digital sequencing software comes with a variety of features such as virtual synthesizers, drum machines and drum patterns built in the software. Also some digital sequencing software have the ability to record audio. You will need to learn how to use these products, it may take up to 3 months to master your selected software. Sequencing software is a good investment it is entirely up to you.

It is possible to use an instrumental that has already been made, but only with permission from the person who created the original material. This is because you would not want to be in breach of copyright laws. If you are in breach of copy right law and the original owner of the material is notified that you have copied their material they could possibly sue you, this may be costly to you financially and also it could damage your image. So always try to stay original and also please if you need to copy any material get the original creators permission first.

For music broadcast volume settings make sure your music is set below -6db, if it is above this level many TV channels and radio stations will not play your material because it is too loud for broad casting standards. Some TV channel may offer to reduce the volume for you for free, some may offer to do this but at a small fee, below -6db is the broad cast standard for songs.
For movie sound tracks similar principals apply but the volume must be below -12db because if it is higher it will not be accepted. -12db is the broadcast standard for movie sound tracks.

You don't want to be rejected for your all important movie sound track that you were guaranteed, but you don't get it all because of a minor mistake. Remember anything above these levels is too high and likely to not be accepted. An engineer or a friend with professional engineering experience would be of an advantage because they can offer you first hand advise and experience as a professional engineer. Thus the end result should be professionally mastered material achieved by your efforts.
