Never thought I would be answering this question at all ever in my life. Instruments are the basic sources of making music .they are the structural elements in the music that we listen to. Musical instruments vary from wooden instruments to metal and have various forms and shapes. Some instruments are even made of string.
This is a very interesting question as you can theoretically do it nowadays. When it comes to the unique music created by these instruments it’s really hard to replicate them with the same timbre and intonation. You should be a musical genius or a great maestro if you can replicate the same without any instruments.
In this article, we are going to look at how music is being created in this day and age without the use of instruments and how it was made possible as well.
Yes, you can make music without musical instruments. This can be done with the help of various software programs in music production which are built to emulate real-life instruments.
Vst instruments are nothing but software that emulates sounds of real instruments using a sampler or using software synthesis methods. They use various techniques to reproduce the nuances that you get with the real instruments.
If you are looking for a Vst check our article on how to choose your first Vst instrument.
There are different types of Vst instruments as well.vst instruments reduce the hassle to learn all instruments. They just give you all the functionalities that you might get with an instrument in software that can be activated or toggled with a single mouse click which is fascinating.
If you are looking for the different types of Vst plugins that are available you can check that here.
The big players in the Vst instrument industry include native instruments .they have an amazing plugin called Kontakt which emulates a whole orchestra of instruments.
If you want to learn a musical instrument I would advise you to start with the piano. You have no idea how much it will help you to progress in music production.
If you learn any other instrument it’s really good for performing in stages but it’s not so good when it comes to music production. You can do only very little when it comes to music production if you play only drums or guitar. Knowing the piano opens you a ton of opportunities that you can explore in music production.
What is the simplest musical instrument to learn?
The piano is the easiest instrument to learn where you can see a lot of improvement very easily. one amazing thing is that you don’t have to worry about a lot of things when it comes to learning piano.
The schematics are simple and if you get a good understanding of the layout of the piano you can progress very quickly which is not the case when it comes to a lot of other instruments.
The sweet thing about learning piano is that it’s very useful if you are trying to get into music production later on in your career.
I can certainly vouch for this. I started my career as a keyboard player learning piano and branched as a music producer, had I not learned piano I have no idea how much trouble I would have been into.
What is the hardest instrument in the world?
Violin is one of the hardest instruments to master even though there are only four strings in them. This is because there is no fret to place the fingers as reference points like other string instruments. If you don’t have a guided teacher by your side it’s hard to master the violin.
Tuning it’s another challenge entirely.
Let’s talk about posture first, man that’s not an easy thing to get it at the first try and will feel extremely uncomfortable.
On top of this, you have to get your bowing right. The reason why people ask the question “can I make music without instruments is one of these reasons as well. It’s hard to master an instrument.
As with any instrument you are trying to learn the most important thing is to practice and put in the time to perfect every technical aspect of it. This allows your creativity to flow and express amazing music.
Making music without any instrument is an amazing idea but in today’s world, there are artificial intelligence robots making music. It’s really interesting to see them do amazing stuff. There is always this fear in the minds of creative people that will be replaced. i think that’s a never-ending question that we will never be able to answer.
Already some websites automatically generate music as well. They are not working music generators; they are just bots picking music from their databases.
Will something be replacing all the instruments that we are using in today’s world?

It’s an amazing post that goes through the aspects of why music production cannot be replaced that easily
