How I could make my own full band tracks when making my own rock and metal songs through DAW…

I don’t have a band right now but I would like to form a band of my own. That way we can jam out some original hard rock songs and covers too! Since I don’t have a band as of this moment, I can figure out a way to make full band tracks through DAW software.

For DAW software, I have Mixcraft 8 which is great for that. With that software, I can program my own drums on it. For bass lines in the rock songs? I don’t have a bass guitar as of this moment but there is a little trick where I can play bass behind my songs.

I can create bass lines by just using a regular six string guitar. I can make it sound like a real bass guitar by lowering the pitch down an octave in my DAW ’cause a bass guitar is tuned down an octave. To make it sound like a real bass, I can lower the pitch down an octave, use compression and equalizer to make it sound like a real bass. I’ll figure it out somehow. I’m still learning and researching this stuff so it’ll take some time.

I definitely would like to make a full band rock demo or even a real album. Would be cool. I’ve always wanted to make heavy music and figure it’s about time to do that.

  1. There are really good bass sounds you can play with a midi controller/keyboard that probably come free with your DAW. I used to use synth basses like that until I bought a real one and they worked just fine.

    1. Thanks, dude. I was thinking about getting a MIDI controller. I know nothing about keyboard/piano playing but I’m trying to learn. Good to hear from ya, too.
