A music producer is someone who is responsible for the production of music. In the past, they used to be called record producers for their ability to take music and publish it to records. Now in the digital world that we live in, we don’t refer to them as records producers as much. A music producer is someone who has a thorough understanding about the way sound (vibrations) waves work. Many musicians today are their own music producers due to the advancement of technology and software; now anyone can create a music studio from their bedroom to produce music. Music producers are essentially the modern day musical conductors. With just the use of their computer, they have access to thousands of instruments as well as sample sounds within their computer to create any kind of music imaginable.
A music producer does the following:
- Understands sound recording and can produce quality sound from a live recording.
- Has a solid foundation using a DAW (Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Ableton). Using GarageBand, created and made famous by Apple, is maybe the most well know but it’s far from the industry standard.
- Knows how to use and play digital instruments, usually with a MIDI keyboard, and create audio affects.
- Format and distribute music at a high quality sample rate.
Music producers are often self-employed people, therefore the take home pay can vary greatly depending on the worth ethic and success of the person. The information below states the wage statistics of music directors and composers, which is very similar to that of what a music producer does.
