Working In The Recording Studio

Working in the recording studio was a lot more of a collaborative effort than I thought it would be. You get this idea in your head that a producer gets hired by a band or an artist and then they do everything that they tell them to do and that’s the end of it.

It’s a lot more of a combination of creative ideas than that. Jesse (my mentor) and I found ourselves changing a vocal progression in melodine, incorporating electronic elements with plug-ins like Omnisphere and Scylinth, doing a stutter effect on an instrument before a transition, EQing instruments so that they’d sit better together in a mix. The engineer determines so much of the outcome of a song.

At the same time it’s a very laid back environment. The more comfortable the artist is with the engineer, the more receptive they’re going to be to suggestions. In all likelihood, you won’t have to do as many takes either.
