I’m a newbie at music technology. I just got Logic Pro X, Apple’s professional music recording digital audio workstation. I’ve been a bit hesitant to open it, as technology is not my forte. But I finally started it today by transferring this song I composed from GarageBand music software to LPX. This original song is actually a vocal tune I’ll be using in a musical I’m writing, but since I haven’t yet written the lyrics, and I always need an instrumental version of a vocal song, I made an instrumental version with this song.
This is my first attempt at using Logic Pro X music software. This is my first vocal tune turned instrumental version. I used strings, french horns, trombones, and a clean guitar to cover all the vocal melodic lines as well as add some harmonic support. I added bass, drums and piano for the basic underlying accompaniment.
I was aiming a little bit for a ‘Belle and Sebastian’ instrumentation and mood simulation. The song will be used for a darker character and mood within the storyline.
