So you are ready to arrange. You have possibly got a mix ready, with track levels sorted, panned, EQ’d and added effects and you are now happy with your ideas and it’s all there within a loop. We’ll assume it is a very typical band-type track, maybe with two guitars, bass, vocals and piano, plus some spare tracks for beats.

The idea of this tutorial is that it will help you progress these ideas – and maybe those that have been kicking around on your drive for a while and that perhaps you’ve not done much with. We will help you take these ideas and mix and arrange them. In truth, those are both processes that you might typically do at the same time in music production – arranging and mixing as you go along – so do bear that in mind that as you read this one. You might need to adjust levels here or tweak effects there to make the parts work in your new arrangement and finished song.

For many, the arranging part of music production can often be the trickiest, possibly a stumbling block. This is strange as sequencers and modern production technology make the process easy.
