This years Camp Studio was the biggest and most fun yet! We had a great team of creative young musicians and producers, who really worked hard on the camp's number one goal: making an album in a week. We began with songwriting on Monday and moved our creations through the music production process throughout the week, including basic tracking, overdubs, mixing and mastering. We also crafted music videos for a few of our songs and put on an all original concert for friends and family!
Here's our album:
And music videos for "Friends" and "Dead Dancer":
At the request of some of our campers, here are the stems for some of our tracks. "stems" are the individual tracks that make up a song, which can be used for making your own remixes. Basically each layer of the song becomes it's own audio file, all of which are exactly the same length, so that when you load it into your favorite DAW software (check out Sunburst's Music Production Buyers Guide for tips) everything lines up correctly. If you're using Garageband, loading stems as as simple as opening a new project and just dragging all of the stem files together into the arrange window.
If you have any questions about how to do this, let us know, we'd be happy to help.
Thanks everyone for an amazing week!
