I've setup an account on Instagram @billjonesmusicstudio
It was a learning experience on getting a decent product to the platform. I started the account with daily improvises, called the Video Jam Series. I also modified some YouTube videos to run on the platform. Currently, I am working on a new method of creating music using improvised voice and guitar/keyboard. My experiment with Instagram Reels went well, with one posting spinning up 1,200 plays.
The Video Jam Series shot live guitar and keyboard improvises. Some jam motifs are worked out a few minutes before. The goal is to capture improvised music. Then, after initial recording of audio on both iPhone and Cubase DAW, the audio is processed.
Processing can include:
- Adding complementary instruments
- Adding EQ, compression, guitar amps, normalization, tempo detection, midi note editing
- Importing video to Cubase, lining up audio files, exporting video with processed audio
- Video is converted to the Instagram "square"
