Does a Music Producer Do ?
get asked this question a lot, so I thought I'd post some info for
new and aspring music producers.
A music producer
is responsible for the finished audio product. If it's good or bad,
it's a direct reflection on the music director. That's it!
Now for the
hard part. How do you get there and what elements are involved?
First, there are NO EXCUSES. A music producer PRODUCES. A good music
producer will consistently hit the mark for creating great music
A music producer
is responsible for all stages of audio development. This means working
with the artist, studio musicians, engineers and related staff.
Part of their job can also be to make sure emotions stay balanced
during the production. An instinct of knowing how hard to push musicians
and when to back off and let everything breathe is usually common
among record producers.
Music Producer Experience
music producers are responsible for all stages of production, they
usually have quite a bit of music and performance experience themselves.
The usually know music so they can properly explain their ideas
to the studio musicians. They also need to know what works and what
doesn't, so live performance experience is indispensable.
says their a music producer, so how do you qualify who's good and
who isn't? For a start, look at how many people are hiring them
to produce audio. If a lot of different people are hiring them,
chances are they are good. If their working with a single artist
or on their own material all the time, chances are they only have
the feel for a limited amount of style expressions.
In my opinion, these
are elements every music producer should master:
1 - Audio
Engineering, Sampling, Audio Mastering
2 - Arranging, Scoring and Orchestration
3 - Musical Director, Conducting or Directing Ensembles
4 - Master a wide variety of styles and genres
5 - Master the performance of at least one instrument
