Electronic music production is more accessible than ever, thanks to an influx of tools available on the interweb. However, there are so many tools that it can be hard to find the best ones for improving your workflow and enhancing your production. We break our favorites down for you below!
Here are our top five picks of useful tools to check out for music production.
Earlier this year, we partnered with Sounds.com. The platform enables music creators to access, download and build personal libraries of royalty-free samples, loops, and sound packs. Sounds.com offers over half a million sounds with cloud-based accessibility. No signup or subscription is needed in order to browse and preview the entire site, which is huge. The site is aesthetically pleasing, easy to use and free to browse.
Similar to Sounds.com, Splice is a sample service that offers a multitude of benefits for music producers of all levels. The Splice Sounds library is constantly updated with new sounds and sample packs from some of dance music’s most prestigious names (KSHMR, Lex Luger, KRANE, Getter and more). The platform also offers Splice Studio, which allows for seamless collaboration between producers, project storage and more. Splice Community offers the ability to explore project sessions, showcase your talent, enter remix contests and much more.
Studiotime is basically the Airbnb of recording studios. From casual home set-ups to top-line studios, you can rent studio time in 35+ countries. Whether you’re a touring musician or just want a change of scenery, Studiotime will get the job done. Maybe you have a studio of your own, but want to make some extra cash. Rent out your space on the easy-to-use website and you’ll be getting bookings in no time.
Fiverr is a marketplace for freelance services of any kind. Musicians can take advantage of many different services, from mixing and mastering to songwriting, graphic design and beyond. Browse through heaps of offerings for reasonable rates and see what works for you!
Vocalizr was created to connect vocalists and producers around the world. Whether you’re a singer looking for a producer to work with, or a producer who needs vocals on a record, then Vocalizr is the community you need. It’s safe, secure and easy to use. It sure beats reaching out into the Facebook void as many producers do.
We hope one of these tools can help you take your music production to the next level!
