MARTIN GARRIX FEAT. USHER - DON'T LOOK DOWN
midichords // about 1 month ago //

Youngster DJ Martin Garrix teamed up with Usher to produce his next killer track, Don't Look Down. It is not quite like the Martin Garrix we know. After Animals - his flagship production thus far - he simply continued producing one big room house track after another. He is having a great time obviously, entertaining partying crowds all over the world. But with Don't Look Down - and maybe even more so with the track Hidden Voices - Martin Garrix is venturing into new territory.

FERRY CORSTEN: BACK TO PARADISE FT. HARIS
midichords // about 1 month ago //

Veteran DJ Ferry Corsten has done it again! With Back To Paradise - from the HelloWorld EP Part 1 - Ferry demonstrates he is still one of the most talented trance producers out there. Listening to his tracks is like getting liquid emotion injected directly into your veins and as far as I am concerned Back to Paradise really lives up to that reputation. The solid beat, the catchy, arpeggiated melodic line and last but not least the fantastic vocals by Haris, a dutch X-Factor star, lift you up and carry you through the entire song. Solid as a rock, it stands out just like many of Ferry's earlier productions.

CHOOSING DAW AND VST PLUGINS FOR YOUR STUDIO
midichords // 2 months ago //

In this post we’re going to talk more about DAWs and VST plugins. DAW stands for Digital Audio Workstation and it’s essentially computer software that's used for recording, editing and producing music. VST stands for Virtual Studio Technology and is an interface that allows for integration of software audio synthesizer and effects in DAWs. You can get VSTs that reproduce analog effects gear such as compressors, EQs, reverbs and delays, or better yet, VSTs that generate sounds very much like analog synthesizers but in a digitally reproduced environment.

PICKING EQUIPMENT FOR A HOME STUDIO
midichords // 3 months ago //

If you want to compose music you'll first need to create a proper environment for this. Granted, anyone with a simple computer can create sounds using a DAW, but if you're serious and you have been flirting with the idea to make serious music, it makes sense to spend a few bucks on some essential equipment. This does not have to be overly expensive and complicated though. Most people start off with a fairly basic home studio and work their way up from there.
