There is much debate as to who is the one that produces a song. Is it the person that makes the music i.e. the beatmaker or is it the person that is in the studio with the artist developing the sound and structure of the finished song. This is less of an issue in the rock and pop genres as it is in the Hip Hop and R&B genres. So the big debate is who gets the what credit on the record and how important is that credit really. But first lets break down what Producer does and what a Beatmaker does.
In this video we take a sample of Lenny Williams- Cause I Love You and flip it into a hip hop beat.
The drum loop is from the Loopmasters - Lack Of Afro Presents Analogue Soul refill
In this video i show how to import a song from iTunes into Reason 7 and chop it up and bounce in to a new rex file, to be used in the Kong drum designer and have all the slices across all 16 pads.
One of the most important things your band can do is be where your fans are, so why should you have your own website? Well first of all some social sites don’t even let your fans see all your post, other social site move so fast your post has gone by before it was even posted. Having your own website gives you total control over your message and your band. So many artist don’t want to be on a major label because they don’t have any say on the final release of there projects and social site are just the same.
Being on the Boards
First thing you recognize when you’re walking into the studio is that big mixing console in front of the engineer, with all the knobs and faders, everything looks so impressive, leaving you to wonder what everything does. Now in Reason six we got the same amazing SSL modeled console that big studios have to shape their recordings. At first glance it looks very complicated with all the insert, send effects, EQ and Compression features; not knowing where to start can seem daunting but Reason makes it simple in laying out the mixer in a way that you start from the top down.
