In my "Rock Arranging & Instrumentation" installment you're going to learn the ins and outs of developing the actual sound of you music and your mix. Timbre is a term used to describe the sound or the tone of your instrument. Timbre is key in producing a clear sonic image in your music and mix. Today I've created a track in which I break down every instrument for you to help train your ear to how different rock instrument effect rock music. We start with every piece of the drum kit, then add bass, and even explore all the different tones of guitar. This is a very in depth study but a fun one as I've pretty much done all the work for you. All you have to do is use you ears. I've even included stems for you engineers out there who want to play around with the track for yourselves a little.


Happy Creating,
