Now, if you don’t want to watch the video, let me answer those questions to you:
How to Make an Intro or Outro for a Melodic House Track?
Intros and outros are simplified versions of your track that are supposed to introduce and end your tracks. You can make them by picking parts of your track and building it slowly until the drop, but always making sure to keep the drop more interesting and, possibly, louder and harder than the intro. At the same time. since these parts are made for DJs to mix in your tracks, the easier you can make for them, the better.
How to Differentiate Your Drop 2 From Drop 1 and Make It More Interesting?
To make sure that your track keeps on growing and always keeps your listener looking forward to what is coming next, try to make your drop a bit different than Drop 1. A couple of ways to do this are:
- Adding a top lead on drop 2
- Adding more percussions from the start of the drop 2. A ride is normally a good element to start with
- Changing the melody of the lead or adding variation to the bass progression.
The idea with these is to make your drop 2 more interesting than before and, as said before, give something else to your listener other that he has already listened to.
How to Make Vocal Chops Within Your Songs From Sample Packs That You Can Find on Splice?
Pick an acapella you like from Splice. Then. try to find simple shouts and parts that are really strong with vowels since these are the best parts to make chops. Now, play around with the samples and try to create a melody with these chops. Lastly, add some reverb and delay to gain a better atmospheric vibe with them and that’s it.
