Awesome feed back and piggy back from the subject. I respect the idea about innovative I always rebuild my self with a new attained skill that would implement my line of work. It can be towards any business model. No.1 what is your sound like and what audience does it cater too? My answer was to listen from the best to the worst to hear whats trending and what was not considered good to my ears, as well as comment based. Three ducks then he’s duck QUACK QUACK!!!
NO.2 was my sound design beyond the cookie-cutter norm create melodies chords and progressions from the ground up. 0-3-7 has been a major effective method to get me started. Making sure to keep that simple and build up the complex as the space in the track allows being aware of muddiness and how to clear it through EQ or a simple adjustment to parameters in the channel settings of the instrument. Keep in mind between white keys and black there twelve an octave staying between that octave with the 12 keys should provide a clear and crisp melody that is in tune and progressive with a good scale comp in place to follow aolein on the stamp tool in piano roll its my go too.
These two were ideal in my process which was based off advice and suggestions from actual subscribers and followers across the board I aim for my platforms to work together since they all have the same goal.
No.3 was graphics and a story broad of my beats timeline-like animations of a sub bar or click bell even the title and logo.to animate in and out qued to drums as they drop, I create the graphic in illustrator such as my Bart Simpson this keeps the art artwork sharp and not fuzzy around the edges to a blur and photographs get manipulated on photoshop due pixel handling on the pictures clarity. My last step is to add audio and graphics to premiere pro to create the video with my original drawn art on illustrator of manipulated pictures on photoshop to match the beat.
I have tried many options for paid services to improve promotion and build up sales. I joined groups all around the social media ideal of getting known and active online for beat production or music in general.
there was some success with hard work hours applied but not the goal we all have in mind. I must admit when the ball is rolling social media on influence add ups in line with our goals but only if that ball is rolling.
I am telling master all three graphics from simple logo art to photos also your sound design to make you unique or different from your classmates. The main thing for me is the video and how to lay it out. Get knowledge of these tools to advance.
