A Simple Way to Make Music with Arpeggiators

Now that I’m in self association and not able to go to the studio. I have been getting more writers block than usual. And one of the ways that I have been pushing through is by experimenting with the tools that I already have. In this video Im going to show you how simple it is to make music using the arpeggiator to get inspired and make music. I will use the built in arpeggiator in Logic X and The Elektron Octatrack. Un poco de Mate y vamos!

In Logic Ill be using: Retro Synth (Muted Bass) Kick 2 by sonic academy, Retro Synth (breathy Steps), tal bass

Octatrack I will be using Digitone, XD and Octatrack. Also the ERM Multiclock

For those who don’t know me I’m a Guatemalan based in Denver Colorado. I started making music after going to a festival called Semana de Musica Avanzada. Were I saw a video on how the Guatemalan Electronic music had started. I had 0 musical training or experience.
So I decided to get Ableton live and a Midi Keyboard and figure it out. Soon after I figured out that it was not going to be easy. I saw music as a way to express feelings, emotions and connect with people.

Now 10 years later I have released in labels like Global Underground, Babiczstyle, and Moody Recordings. I have been able to releases alongside artist’s likes of Robert Babicz, Xpansul, Jaceo, Jonas Tempel, Ben A and Rick Wade. I Love blending gritty organic sounds with Latin instrumentation, celebrating My Latin roots and bringing that uniqueness to my production.

I served as Mentor for Redline ArtCorps a network of programs that support the arts at under-resourced schools in RedLine’s community of Five Points. By establishing strong connections between art, education, and the community, ArtCorps increases student’s opportunities for creative engagement in schools, allowing for a more rigorous and well-rounded education. I mentored Evan to learn how to produce music and channel his energy into music.

During my period with Redline, I understood that passing down knowledge has more impact and that Is why I decided to start my YouTube channel journey and help people interested in making music in a non-technical way with videos about music production based on my experience and mistakes that I’ve made in my music production journey.
