Relation to other modules
Related to the ICT and practical classes.
Make your own fantastic demos, play-alongs and CD productions with plug-ins! Virtual instruments have developed extremely rapidly over the past few years. Anyone who has not explored this will miss the boat! MIDI and audio are converging so that it is possible to create productions with a completely natural sound. This is also where everything you have learned at ArtEZ Jazz & Pop will come together: main subject, Harmony at the Piano, arranging, computers and music, and using studios. We will be working with components such as Stylus RMX drums, EZ Drummer, Trilogy bass module, Elektrik and Akoustik Piano, B4II Organ and Guitar Rig. The method here is not purely technical. It is also a musical approach to the endless opportunities of the digital world.
