Top 10 Sites for Creating Digital Music Permanent link
Ever since I started exploring creating music on the computer with Garageband, I've come to love how easy it is to integrate it into education. Students can use it to create soundtracks to movies, mix their favorite songs, and even record their own voice. Below is my list of top 10 sites for creating and mixing digital music.
Top 10 Sites for Creating Digital Music
1. Myna - Far and away my favorite online music editor. This is very similar to Garageband and a nice alternative for those who do not have the Apple application.
2. Soundation - Very easy to use, with a drag/drop interface for creating excellent-sounding music.
3. Jam Studio - Fun site that lets users select a "key" to play in and a theme to match.
4. Loop Labs - Nice time- line editor; learning curve is a bit higher than most sites.
5. Your Spins - Great site for mixing prerecorded music and sharing with others.
6. Indaba - Unique site where users can create collaborative music pieces to make one final product.
7. Creating Music - Very user friendly website shows kids how to create digital music.
8. Contrapunctus Variations - Wonderful site for creating orchestral music by selecting an instrument and clicking on a time line.
9. iNudge - Fun site for kids, who can make music by drawing shapes.
10. Glitchscape - Create sound by drawing vector shaped rectangles.
ScreenCasts Creating screencasts has been one of my favorite things to do when working w/ technology. I have used this as a tool for teachers or students to help them w/ troubleshooting or even professional development.Wikipedia states, "Educators are now using screencasts as another means of integrating technology into the curriculum. Students can record video and audio as they demonstrate the proper procedure to solve a problem on an interactive whiteboard."
