This page is dedicated to demystifying the process of making a song from start to finish, with limited interruptions. This is intended to fill in any gaps of knowledge. This is the typical process I follow when I'm working with someone. Before we get into the steps, here are some roles it's important to understand in this process.
Artist - The person/band who's name is going on the record.
Producer - The person who works with the artist in all steps of the recording process.
[Recording] Engineer - The person in the studio working the microphones and studio gear when recording.
Mixing Engineer/Mixer - The person mixing the recordings.
Mastering Engineer - The person mastering the mixes.
There are A LOT of steps to making a record and it can be overwhelming. To add another layer, these steps are not always the same depending on who is involved and how you decide to record. There's good news though, every person who's ever made a recording has gone through this long process. It's not uncommon to begin to dislike the material after you get through any steps of the process, especially towards the end. That's why it's important you like the songs you're recording. More importantly though, don't give up. Part of this process is all the frustrating, boring, and fun parts. It's all of it. It is incredibly meaningful to have a record of your creativity at the end of all of this. And that's why we do it.
