Lesson 3. Working with Software Instruments > Building a Song from Scratch

Building a Song from Scratch

The next series of exercises will walk you through the steps of building a song using Software Instruments. Some of the instrument parts will be prerecorded Apple Loops; others you will record using the onscreen keyboard and Musical Typing. Once the parts are in place, you will open the different regions in the Track Editor to edit and transpose them.

Previewing the Finished Song

Let’s take a sneak preview of the finished song, so that you’ll have an idea what you’re going to build from scratch. I’ve called this song SciFiShow, because it’s the sort of thing I would score for the opening title sequence of a hip science fiction show.
