The New Age Music Producer

Jul 11, 2008
Looking into the situation in the current music industry, a record producer (or music producer) can have a lot of roles. Among these roles may be task like, mentoring and guiding the artist or musicians, controlling the studio recording sessions, organizing and scheduling production budget and other music resources, and obviously one of the most important jobs of the producer was the supervising of the recording, and the mixing and mastering processes.

In the last 20 years the term producer has essentially taken on a new meaning in the music industry. More and more producers are taking a more entrepreneurial role or approach to the music business. This role has been enhanced part because of the recent evolution of digital music, specifically in the hip hop genre. In contemporary digital hip hop music, it is possible for the producer to be the only person involved in the creation of a musical record, album or recording. Today the producer can be responsible for writing, performing, recording and even arranging all the material for a song or album.

With the change and ever decreasing price of professional music software in the industry like FL Studio, Digidesign Protools, Cakewalk Sonar, and Steinberg Cubase, producers can recorded, compose, and arrange entire tracks and songs on a single bedroom computer and get very professional results. All the parts of music production that used to take almost an entire team of people to do, can now all be done by one person, the producer.

The hip hop music industry, for the most part, can be seen as a major beneficiary to the current trend of music technology price drops. People of all economic statuses are now able to have access to some of the best music production tools at very affordable prices. Having powerful semi-professional music software and equipment was almost unheard of about 15 to 20 years ago. Now people of all age group and demographics are able to make music from the comfort of their own homes or studios. Most basic music producers are even able to set up small studios in their basements or bedrooms and get very close to a professional quality recording or sound.

We really don't know where technology is going to take us in the future of music, but all the current economic signs say the technology will continue to get cheaper by the day. Making it more and more affordable for any body wanting to get into the music production business to set up a studio from home and make professional sounding albums and recording.
