As a music composer, I love creating a melody and a track in a way that’s different from what’s already there in the music.
I’ve often been asked how to use my fingers to create melody, and in this post, I’ll walk you through the process.
First, I’m going to describe how to create an image in Adobe Illustrator.
I know it’s a daunting task, but I’m willing to give it a try if it helps you visualize the images that come to mind.
The image will be a picture of your own face, but the process of creating it should be similar to how I’ve created other image-based work in the past.
Let’s start with the basics.
The first thing we’ll need is an image file.
To create an Image file, open Adobe Illustration, go to File menu, select Import File…, and choose “Create Image”.
This will open an empty folder named “Images”.
You can rename the folder to whatever you like.
You’ll see a new window titled Import Image.
The following will appear:You can drag the Image to an empty area of the window, and it will appear in the canvas.
Select the Image, and the window will close.
Now, let’s begin.
Open a new document, and create a new folder.
Select File menu and choose New Folder.
The new folder will appear, and you can drag it to an existing folder.
Now we need to create our melody.
Open Illustrator, go File menu , select Create new Track…, choose “Music” from the dropdown list.
You can add a chord to a track by dragging the note to the bottom of the track.
Drag the chord to an area of your image, and then drag the chord down to create the melody.
You might also want to make sure the image has the same size and position as the note, or you might need to scale it down.
You have to give the image the same width and height as the track, and move it around to fit the track’s dimensions.
You can change the dimensions with the Edit menu.
Select the image, then drag it around the canvas to create your melody.
It should look something like this.
You’re going to add some notes to it, then play the melody for the first time.
When the melody plays, it will sound like a musical note, and when you change the melody to something else, it’ll sound like the notes from the previous song.
You will see this when you play the song again.
The next step is to add a backing track.
Open Adobe Illustrations, go the File menu menu , click Add a Track….
This will open a new tab, and select the image.
The tab will open, and drag it into the image to create this track.
This is the final image that appears.
This next step involves the creation of a backing music track.
Go to File, click Add an Image…, then choose the image that you want to use for the backing track, then click the “Save” button.
You should now have a new backing track in Illustrator that you can play in your music player.
You want to do this for all your music tracks, so you’ll need to copy and paste the image into all your tracks in the same way that you copied and pasted the image from the image file in the previous step.
If you’re not familiar with Adobe Illustrators, go ahead and click Start.
This should start creating a new directory in your home folder called “Music”.
