Music Production Timeline

Instrumental or Beat Selection

Creating a beat or instrumental is the first step in music production. When you’re making a song, you need to have the right instrumental to set the vibe of the song. This is also where we get the song's tempo. For example, if you’re going to make a slow song, you’ll need to take a beat that is calm and slow. If you’re going to make a fast song, you’ll need a beat that is fast and upbeat. It is also the main piece to how long your song is. The longer the instrumental, the longer the song.

Lyric Writing or Punch-Ins

There really is no right or wrong way to write a song. I'm sure there are some people who have a problem with that statement, but it is the truth. The one thing that is true is that you have to have some sort of direction. Some people like to have a beat already selected and then start writing. While others like to freestyle on the microphone and come up with the song as they go.

Song Recording & Tracking

Song tracking, which is the act of capturing your song and keeping track of what you have done is the most complicated part of producing a song and it is often the aspect of music production that is not done properly. It is important that the artist is comfortable during the production process and communicating their needs with the producer. Whether you are writing a song or recording a song, you should have a clear plan and a good overview of what you are going to sing about and how the song will make people feel.

Track Editing & Mixing

Song editing and mixing are two of the most important processes to the finalization of a song. After a song has been created and the rough draft is complete, then it is time to move on to editing and mixing. These are two terms that are often used interchangeably, but they are not the same thing. Editing is the process of cutting out parts of a song that are not necessary.

Song mixing is the process of balancing all of the parts to make it sound good. Having a good mix can make a song sound professional and of high quality. A bad mix can make a song sound amateur and unprofessional.

Song editing is the process of fine-tuning your song to make it as good as it can be. In professional studios, your producer will be editing your song, usually at the same time as they are mixing it. Song editing is a very important part of the process. It’s one of the last steps in making sure your song is the very best it can be.

Mastering & Distribution

Music mastering is the final step in the music production process. It is the process of taking all your recorded audio and mixing it down to a single, unified audio file. The goal of mastering a song is to have a professional and consistent sound. While mixing and editing are focused on the individual tracks, mastering is focused on the final product. It is the final polishing of your song. If you are currently working with the Artist Development AND team we will manage the distribution of your music to iTunes, Spotify, VEVO, and all other streaming platforms online. If you are distributing the music yourself, you can use a service such as Distrokid or RouteNote.
