What is a music producer?
A music producer or record producer is someone who has a very broad role in overseeing and managing the recording of a band or performer’s music. If a band who plays their own instruments is recording, the producer will have an input into how or what the guitar plays, how the drums are performed, or how the singer sings, and so forth. In my case, I’m dealing with mainly programmed electronic music. So essentially, my job as the music producer is to create the backing track, create the song structure, and decide on vocal performance, including harmonies and ad-libs to create the desired sound.
