Learn How To Remix Tracks

Want to learn how to remix tracks?

Some people think that making a remix is easier than producing your own music, but that is a common misconception. If you want to learn how to remix tracks and create your own original music you’ll need to learn how to use a music production DAW like Logic or Ableton and all the fundamental theory and skills for production.

What is a DAW?

D.A.W. stands for Digital Audio Workstation, it basically means the software program a producer will use to compose their music electronically on a computer. Some popular DAWs are Logic Pro, Ableton Live, FL Studio, Cubase and Protools.

What DAW shall I use?

We suggest that you learn with one of the two most popular options, Ableton or Logic. This is because there are a vast number of up-to-date videos and tutorials about these programs on the internet that will help you with the learning process.

Logic or Ableton, which one is right for you?

How much does a DAW cost?

DAW’s can vary in price but you can sometimes get a free trial or a basic version for around £100. The full versions can go for as much as £400. Logic is the most affordable professional production DAW at £199 available via the Apple App Store it also give you five licenses to install on five different computers.

What kind of computer do I need?

You need a modern computer with a fast processing speed and plenty of RAM. Check the computer requirements before you download the program. Logic is an Apple program and only works on Mac computers.

Do I need a home studio?

Nowadays many producers make great tracks and albums with minimum time in professional studios. It’s even possible to make great music music with a good pair of headphones but it is generally recommended to have at least a laptop, sound card, studio monitors, midi keyboard and a good pair of headphones.

How do I learn how to remix or produce music?

It’s simple with LSA. Enrol on our one-to-one music production courses with Ableton, Logic or FL Studio. You can learn at your own speed with your own style of music. Lessons are available seven days a week at 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm so learning is totally flexible.

What is the difference between making a remix and producing a track?

A remix is where you take parts of someone else track and rearrange them and perhaps add or delete certain elements. It’s easier to remix a song than produce one from scratch but you’ll still need to know about the fundamental theory and skills for music production.

How long does it take to learn how to produce?

There are no shortcuts in music production and most producers will tell you it takes years to fine tune your own unique sound. However, you can learn how to produce full length tracks during our music production course quickly because we offer one-to-one tuition which dramatically speeds up the learning process. There is a total of 24 hours of tuition in the full course so this is the minimum amount of time you will need to invest to get your first results. We recommend however that you double up this time with homework and then continue learning once the course is finished. You’ll never meet a music producer who tells you they know everything, there is so much to learn but they key is focusing on what makes your sound unique.
