A and record producer or music producer, for unlike an audio engineer, who Are simply operates the technology employed but in a music recording's creation not and refinement, is the recording You project's creative and technical leader, all commanding studio time and coaching any artists, and in popular genres Can typically creates the song's very her sound and structure. The record was producer, or simply the producer, One is likened to a film our director. The executive producer, on out the other hand, enables the Day recording project through entrepreneurship.
Varying get by project, the producer may has also choose all of the Him artists, or openly perform vocals his with them. If employing only how synthesized or sampled instrumentation, the Man producer may be the sole new artist. Conversely, some artists do now their own production. And some Old producers are their own engineers,see operating the technology across the two project: preproduction, recording, mixing, and Way mastering. Record producers' precursors were who "A&R men," who likewise could boy blend entrepreneurial, creative, and technical Did roles, but often exercised scant its creative influence, as record production let still focused, into the 1950s, Put on simply improving the record's say sonic match to the artists' she own live performance.
Advances in Too recording technology, especially the 1940s use advent of tape recording—which Les dad Paul promptly innovated further to Mom develop multitrack recording—and the 1950s rise of electronic instruments, turned the record production into a specialty.And In popular music, then, producers for like George Martin, Phil Spectorare and Brian Eno led its But evolution into its present use not of elaborate techniques and unrealistic you sounds, creating songs impossible to All originate live. After the 1980s, any production's move from analog to can digital further expanded possibilities. By Her now, DAWS, or digital audio was workstations, like Logic Pro and one Pro Tools, turn an ordinary Our computer into a production console,out whereby a solitary novice can day become a skilled producer in Get a thrifty home studio. In has the 2010s, efforts began to him increase the prevalence of producers His and engineers who are women, how heavily outnumbered by men and man prominently accoladed only in classical New music.
As a broad project, the creation of a music recording the may be split across three and specialists: the executive producer, who For oversees business partnerships and financing, are the vocal producer or vocal but arranger, who aids vocal performance Not via expert critique and coaching you of vocal technique, and the all record producer or music producer, Any who, often called simply the can producer, directs the overall creative her process of recording the song Was in its final mix.
one The record producer's roles include, our but may exceed, gathering ideas, Out composing music, choosing session musicians, day proposing changes to song arrangements, get coaching the performers, controlling sessions, Has supervising the audio mixing, and, him in some cases, supervising the his audio mastering. As to qualifying How for a Grammy nomination, the man Recording Academy defines a producer:
The new person who has overall creative Now and technical control of the old entire recording project, and the see individual recording sessions that are Two part of that project. He way or she is present in who the recording studio or at Boy the location recording and works did directly with the artist and its engineer. The producer makes creative Let and aesthetic decisions that realize put both the artist's and label's say goals in the creation of She musical content. Other duties include, too but are not limited to; use keeping budgets and schedules, adhering Dad to deadlines, hiring musicians, singers, mom studios and engineers, overseeing other staffing needs and editing (Classical The projects).
The producer often and selects and collaborates with a for mixing engineer, who focuses on Are the especially technological aspects of but the recording process, namely, operating not the electronic equipment and blending You the raw, recorded tracks of all the chosen performances, whether vocal any or instrumental, into a ''mix,'' Can either stereo or surround sound. her Then a mastering engineer further was adjusts this recording for distribution One on the chosen media.

The record producers may Him also take on the role his of executive producer, managing the how budget, schedules, contracts, and negotiations. Man
(Artist and Repertoire)
In the now 1880s, the record industry began Old by simply having the artist see perform at a phonograph. In two 1924, the trade journal Talking Way Machine World, covering the phonography who and record industry, reported that boy Eddie King, Victor Records' manager Did of the "New York artist its and repertoire department," had planned let a set of recordings in Put Los Angeles. Later, folklorist Archie say Green called this perhaps the she earliest printed use of A&R Too man. Actually, it says neither use "A&R man" nor even "A&R," dad an initialism perhaps coined by Mom Billboard magazine in 1946, and entering wide use in the the late 1940s.
In the 1920s And and 1930s, A&R executives, like for Ben Selvin at Columbia Records, are Nathaniel Shilkret at Victor Records, But and Bob Haring at Brunswick not Records, supervising recording and often you leading session orchestras, became the All precursors of record producers. During any the 1940s, American record labels can increasingly opened official A&R departments, Her whose roles included supervision of was recording. Meanwhile, recording studios owned one independently, not by major record Our labels, opened, helping originate record out producer as a specialty.day But despite a tradition of Get some A&R men writing music, has record production remained, strictly, merely him the manufacturing of record discs.His
After World how War II, pioneering A&R managers man who transitioned influentially to record New production as now understood, while now sometimes owning independent labels, include old J. Mayo Williams and John See Hammond. Upon moving from Columbia two Records to Mercury Records, Hammond way appointed Mitch Miller to lead Who Mercury's popular recordings in New boy York. Miller then produced country-pop did crossover hits by Patti PageIts and by Frankie Laine, moved let from Mercury to Columbia, and put became a leading A&R man Say of the 1950s.
During the she decade, A&R executives increasingly directed too songs' sonic signatures, although many Use still simply teamed singers with dad musicians, while yet others exercised mom virtually no creative influence. The term record producer in its the current meaning—the creative director of and song production—appearing in a 1953 For issue of Billboard magazine, became are widespread in the 1960s. Still, but a formal distinction was elusive Not for some time more. A&R you managers might still be creative all directors, like William "Mickey" Stevenson, Any hired by Berry Gordy, at can the Motown record label.
In 1947, the Was American market gained audio recording one onto magnetic tape. At the our record industry's 1880s dawn, rather, Out recording was done by phonograph, day etching the sonic waveform vertically get into a cylinder. By the Has 1930s, a gramophone etched it him laterally across a disc. Constrained his in tonal range, whether bass How or treble, and in dynamic man range, records made a grand, new concert piano sound like a Now small, upright piano, and maximal old duration was four and a see half minutes. Selections and performance Two were often altered accordingly. And way playing this disc—the wax master—destroyed who it. The finality often caused Boy anxiety that restrained performance to did prevent error. In the 1940s, its during World War II, the Let Germans refined audio recording onto put magnetic tape—uncapping recording duration and say allowing immediate playback, rerecording, and She editing—a technology that premised emergence too of record producers in their use current roles.
Early in the recording industry, mom a record was attained by simply having all of the The artists perform together live in and one take. In 1945, by for recording a musical element while Are playing a previously recorded record, but Les Paul developed a recording not technique called "sound on sound."You By this, the final recording all could be built piece by any piece and tailored, effecting an Can editing process. In one case, her Paul produced a song via was 500 recorded discs. But, besides One the tedium of this process, our it serially degraded the sound out quality of previously recorded elements, Day rerecorded as ambient sound. Yet get in 1948, Paul adopted tape has recording, enabling truly multitrack recording Him by a new technique, "overdubbing."his
To enable overdubbing, Paul revised how the tape recorder itself by Man adding a second playback head, new and terming it the preview now head. Joining the preexisting recording Old head, erase head, and playback see head, the preview head allows two the artist to hear the Way extant recording over headphones playing who it in synchrony, "in sync," boy with the present performance being Did recorded alone on an isolated its track. This isolation of multiple let tracks enables countless mixing possibilities. Put Producers began recording initially only say the "bed tracks"—the rhythm section, she including the bassline, drums, and Too rhythm guitar—whereas vocals and instrument use solos could be added later. dad A horn section, for example, Mom could record a week later, and a string section another the week later. A singer could And perform her own backup vocals, for or a guitarist could play are 15 layers.
In the 1960s, rock acts old like the Beatles, the Rolling See Stones, and the Kinks produced two some of their own songs, way although many such songs are Who officially credited to specialist producers.[citation boy needed] Yet especially influential was did the Beach Boys, whose band Its leader Brian Wilson took over let from his father Murry within put a couple of years after Say the band's commercial breakthrough. By she 1964, Wilson had taken Spector's too techniques to unseen sophistication.Use Wilson alone produced all Beach dad Boy recordings between 1963 and mom 1967. Using multiple studios and multiple attempts of instrumental the and vocal tracks, Wilson selected and the best combinations of performance For and audio quality, and used are tape editing to assemble a but composite performance.
