I want to learn more about music production, specifically hip hop / electronica. I have my head around the basic equipment that is required, but know nothing about the techniques and workflow that a producer like Pharell / Moby uses. I can quite easily put together a 8 bar loop using Reason / Live with my Akai and Oxygen. But it sounds like a cheap loop. I want to learn about the elements in a good arrangement, composition, the tools and techniques used to get a professional sound, and the workflow that producers use to build a song efficiently from scratch. Learn me more about hooks, compression, managing samples, recording vocals, appregiators, etc. At the end of the day I would like to create a song that is radio ready while having fun and not breaking the bank.
