Music Production – How to Get a Professional Sound

music production is carried out by a professional production team. No matter whether you have a single song or a complete album you want produced, hiring a music production company is a smart choice if you want a top quality professional sound.

This side of the music industry is very competitive, so if you shop around a little you are sure to get the results you want at a price you can afford. A good producer will help you control the recording process from start to finish.

Production usually starts with a basic outline of your song. Many producers only need to hear a simple version of the song with either guitar or piano backing to get a sense of how to enhance and present your music and help you produce a professional track. But don’t worry if you don’t have any instrumental backing – professional music production companies will be able to supply musicians and create a backing track for you.

Once a producer has a rough sketch of your song along with an idea of how you think it should sound they will then bring in session musicians or programme up a guide backing track, or a combination of the two. You will then be able to review this version. This will not be the finished product, so you can change things around if you feel something is not working quite right.

At this point you would be encouraged to sing along and see how it feels, and make any changes in terms of key and tempo.

Once sketch stage has been sorted out, the producer will record a final version of the backing track, incorporating the instruments you want used for backing with the song, drums, keyboard or guitars – the choice is up to you and your budget.

Throughout the process you can decide whether it’s the sound you were looking to create and advise the producer of any changes you feel necessary – after all, you are the client.

After this, it’s time to put the vocals together with the music. Sometimes you will record the vocals yourself, but other times you may hire a session singer. Production companies have this eventuality covered as well; as they generally have a selection of singers they can call on in many different vocal styles to suit any sound or genre.

Once everything has been brought together, you should get your final mix within a few days. Often the producer will deliver the final mix of your song or musical masterpiece to you through the use of a link you can listen to and then download.

Here is a sample of the sort of things a production team can offer you;

  • Fine quality recordings: your finished song or track will be of CD and Radio quality.
  • Top musicians: Whether its drums, guitars or keyboard, producers have access to professional session musicians.
  • Production Professionals: You’ll have your very own producer who will oversee every step of the process.
  • Complete control: If you’re not happy with any phase of the work you can ask for it to be changed or done again.
  • Fast efficient service: Generally, you could have a finished song in less than two weeks.

If you are after professional results seek out the services of a professional music production company. It will pay dividends are the hard work is done.
