Week 1

The first class centred around basic music software that is accessible to everyone. Soundtrap is a free and online software that can be used to record and create music using recordings and built-in loops and samples. We also explored the range of features available in Soundtrap and briefly touched on Garageband which is a very similar program that is built into all Apple devices.

Seven steps to create a Soundtrap piece

  1. Begin by adding a Loop

2. Select a Bass, rhythm or drum line and drag onto the screen

3) Continue to add multiple loops, fills and feature lines by dragging onto the screen

4) Customise pre-made melodies and fills by selecting Edit and Edit Notes

5) Click and drag notes within the piano roll to edit

6) Select Instrument and press record to play your own melodies inside your piece in real time

7) To edit or correct timing issues select Quantize
