Making music doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Using the free and open-source LMMS with its free instruments and sounds allow you to bring your games to life using music. Music is a part of games that often gets overlooked and with this course, you’ll learn how to make a soundtrack for your game.
In this course, Michael will first take you from knowing nothing about LMMS, learning its interface and tools, to composing a rhythm track. Rhythm is a fundamental part of music creation, it is a great place to start experimenting and having fun whilst learning a little theory along the way.
Throughout the course, you will use musical frameworks to help guide you when creating your music. The theory doesn’t have to be dry and boring when it is implemented straight away which we will do throughout the course when we need to learn something new.
We will be covering:
•Themes and variations.
•Expanding LMMS with multiple plugins.
•Creative dynamic and reactive music for your games.
Later in the course, we cover modular music, where you can create a musical soundscape that can blend seamlessly from exploring the world to being engaged in battle and finally an ambient layer as well.
There is no better time than to learn the basics of composition and bring your games to life today.
