With audio programs, making a song from scratch suddenly becomes really, really easy. Programs like GarageBand come with their own loop selection, but if you are using a different program, try downloading bass riffs or back beats and go to town! Or download beats from Youtube- wherever. The challenge is to make a song without recording anything yourself.”
For this assignment I used GarageBand to create my song. I started out by deciding on what genre I was going to base it around. I then started going through all of the tracks that they have prerecorded or the electronic genre. After that I chose my main beat and then started finding other segments that sounded good with it. i decided that I was going to base this song around my radio show. That is why it is not very long. I wanted to be able to use the song in a more transitional way for the show.
This assignment took a bit of time due to trying to find the perfect segments that would sound good together. I feel like it would have been easier to space the sounds out more, but I wanted to make it short so I could use it for a transition sound. I enjoyed this assignment because it gave me a chance to navigate around GarageBand again. GarageBand is simple to use and there are also lots of tutorials online.
