Recently we made some music unsing Soundtrap.Click the banner below to view the recording! This demonstration was free and open to the public, so be sure to share it with your friends and check back here for more!

Event


In this exploration of Soundtrap we’ll explore different instrument sounds and music styles, beat loops, and tools like Reverb, Pan, and Treble to make our own songs! This project takes around an hour depending on the complexity of the song you create and only requires internet access to use Soundtrap, though we recommend headphones, and a mouse

Soundtrap is a music tool that is free to use. By learning how to make your own music in Soundtrap you'll be able to create in most other music tools like FruityLoops, and ProTools - the basics are all very similar!


This activity was designed for students ages 10 to 18.
Requirements:
  • 1 computer with internet access
  • 1 computer mouse, and headphones (recommended)
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s make some Music!
