How to create a happy soundtrack for your app


By web gangsta | Published:

One of the hardest things for amateurs to do when coming up with a great video, web game, or smartphone app is to come up with a high quality music bed to accompany the narration or gameplay.

At worst, it becomes an annoying din that the user has to tune out or turn off.

At best, it’s a hooky catch that transcends beyond the game to become an entity unto itself.

But let’s say you’re still stuck making your own soundtrack or music bed?

And let’s say that you want to make your own HAPPY APPY SONG?

Luckily, Matt Long has come up with a theory about what makes the Most Happiest Music Bed Ever, and all you need to do is have three things on your favorite MIDI MUSIC EDITING PROGRAM, such as Apple’s LogicPro, Cubase Elements, or other similar music suite.

Those three things that guarantee that you’ll be making happy, happy music in no time?  Something that will be easy on the ears and not overly annoying when heard on repeat?
