How To Turn Your Loop Into A Song – Inspiration and Production

Today I show how you can take a simple idea with some potential into a bigger concept and eventually a song by trying a few simple production techniques, arrangement ideas and creativity hacks.

The song used in this video is “Nothing To Lose” by Miavono (Brad and I)
You can hear it here on YouTube –
And you can hear it on Spotify Here –

This video shows the demo project at the point before we transposed it down, started the lyrical ideas and recorded the guitar and cello. I show how it progressed from a simple 4/8 bar loop into an idea that could be expanded on with vocals. Sometime a song can take a few sessions to get to this point and at other times it takes only a few minutes. In this case, I spent a morning making this basic concept however the final project took many more weeks of sessions to fully develop once Brad had written the lyrics and main melody. Don’t be worried if it takes a few sessions, weeks or months for a concept to come to life – often the best things in life take time :)

About In The Mix

In The Mix is all about simplifying the recording, production, mixing and mastering process and helping you unlock your creativity. No matter which DAW you use or what equipment you have, I’m determined to help you succeed. I try to share as much as I can about the industry and give an insight into the world of music production and the business behind it by showing you how to release and sell your music online.

Being an FL Studio Power User I also focus tutorials on getting the most out of FL Studio, My DAW of choice.

Micahel Wynne is a recording artist and mixing engineer with a passion for teaching (and instant ramen).
In 2015 I discovered my enthusiasm for music and audio; I learned how to record and produce songs in my university student room with a just cheap laptop and FL Studio. After several months of working in audio sessions between school assignments, I decided to leave uni with a 2-year engineering diploma to pursue a career in music. I wanted to learn everything I could about the industry and the artistic process, so I started making original music as half of the duo “Miavono”.

In late 2016 I began my journey on YouTube, sharing my knowledge and experiences with audio in the form of tutorials on “In The Mix”. I quickly grew a community of over 120,000 producers, artists, and audio professionals, a group of people whose passions aligned with mine. Last year I built my own home studio from the ground up in my back garden, set in the rural highlands of Scotland, and have since been supported by and involved with some of the greatest people in the industry.
