The modern music studio is about more than just the musician, and for those looking to pursue a career in the music business, much of what happens in a recording studio is as much thanks to the team of engineers behind the console as the person in front of the microphone.
In this recent piece from MusicThinkTank, Kevin Gardner looks at the work that goes into creating music besides that done by the artist, and different roles played behind the scenes.
"Much like a movie producer, the music producer is the one that makes everything cohesive. The producer finds the sounds that will make a hit. They are the one who determines what will go out. This person chooses all the required personnel to make the magic happen. While, in some instances, they also are the beat maker, the most important work done is by getting out music that will sell. "
