Ability to create good music requires great talent and at the same time, these days it’s an expensive process too. When I was a kid, I had a friend who had a great hold over music and composed many amazing tunes just using his synthesizer. As he was not able to afford all the equipments necessary to grow his composing skills he gave up his hobby.
Not that lack of equipments or software can obstruct the path of someone who’s truly passionate about composing music, you’d agree that their presence surely helps and lets the music creator get things done easily and effectively.
The advent of the World Wide Wed brought along many free online tools using which you can create your own music without investing a single penny on the equipment. All you need is a computer and a decent internet connection and these 4 tools will await the creative genius in you.
Audio tool is a full-fledged music creation tool. As soon as you launch the app you will be given the choice to start from scratch or work on a template. One of the best things about Audio Tool is that you can control each and every aspect of the music. You can even create and manage the connection between devices such as beatbox, splitter and merger to have complete control over your music.
Indeed the interface can be a bit complicated for beginners but there are many tutorials available online to help the users.
You can also publish your work online which can be used and downloaded according to the license you specify.
If you are a novice when it comes to creating music and are still in a learning phase than the above mentioned tool can be a bit out of grasp for you. With lots of elements to look after you need to become a pro to handle it. For beginners I would recommend Music Shake.
Music Shake is a less complicated online music creation tool which allows people to easily create, listen and share their creation for free. Just select your desired tempo, the instruments you want to work on and start creating your music. One you are done creating, you can save and publish your work online.
With many online battles and contests, Music Shake gives an artist a wonderful platform to show his potential to the world.
Otomata is one of the simplest online flash tools to create music. According to the coder of the tool, Otomata is a generative sequencer. It employs a cellular automaton type logic he has devised to produce sound events.
Once the tool loads you will see columns of square boxes that you can interact with. I just clicked on some of the boxes randomly and hit the play button. Soon a pleasant music started playing. If I can create such a wonderful note with no experience at all, I am sure you guys can come out with wonderful tunes.
According to Wikipedia, a metronome is any device that produces regular, metrical ticks (beats, clicks) and may be used by musicians when practicing in order to maintain a constant tempo.
Long back these devices were mechanical and resembled an oscillating pendulum and were always a little complicated. Now with Metronome Online you can easily produce a steady beat without going through much trouble.
As I don’t know much about how to use a metronome I will leave that to you guys. There are many online articles on the homepage itself that will clear all your doubts regarding the online tool and its usage.
