lol, maybe i should rewrite the lyrics of the song...‘Cake on me’ (The messy baby mix)?
The very first thing that comes with recreating a song is transcribing it. You don't have to perfectly transcribe the song in order to move on, but it is helpful in getting it right so that you can dial it in super accurately later. Then comes finding the general instrument, ex. THAT's a piano or THAT's a viola vs. a violin. Then comes researching what instruments were used in the era of making the song, given you can't search up what the artist used. Some songs are MASSIVELY more difficult to find exactly what instrument was used. What helps is knowing the small differences in sound between different synths, or knowing famous presets. (I just listened to We Like to Party earlier and realized it had TR-909 drums, M1 E.Organ for the bass, and JV-1080 pizzicato.) The hardest part, which definitely takes the longest, is dialing in the settings on every instrument so that they sound exactly like the original. What makes it even harder is when the instrument used doesn't use/have presets, so you have to basically guess and check until it sounds right.I’m into music so I am curious how you “recreate “ them. Do you record all the parts playing them yourself? What software do you use and what instruments do you use for recreating them?
Recreating a song is basically the final boss of knowing a song. You have to have a good ear, music theory knowledge, sound design skills, refined analysis techniques, and a lot of time to figure everything out. It's a big puzzle.
