How to Make Melodies: Trap Edition
We recently teamed up with Cymatics to bring in one of their best loop makers!
He has spent 10,000+ hours mastering the art of melody creation, and he specializes in the Trap genre. This course covers the entire creative process of making placement ready trap melodies for one of the biggest production companies in the world.
Since creating catchy and memorable melodies has become one of the most valuable aspects of today’s music in general… We figured this could be one of the most useful production aspects to cover, especially when taught by one of the best in the industry.
