Beat Producer

There is no shortage of hopefuls who aspire to become successful beat producers, but far fewer actually understand the work of this individual in today’s popular music industry. The beat producer performs a greater function than pulling together synthesized drum hits, he or she is a composer who crafts the original music, an alchemist that mixes sampled material with original content, over which rap and hip-hop artists lay their lyrics.

Mix Engineer

Each part of a song, pertaining to the individual instruments and vocals, is recorded independently and then combined later to create one album track. At the completion of the recording process, all of the separate tracks are delivered as a DVD or virtual files to the mix engineer and transferred to a mixing console for the final production. A mix engineer is concerned with artfully assembling those tracks and adding effects for sound quality and aesthetic enhancement. This person also adds elements like fade and stereo pan.
