In the Jar Studios
Role of the Music Producer

A great way to optimize your time in the studio is to do some pre-production before you begin the actual recording process. This can include planning where and when you will record, setting a budget, deciding the number of songs you will put on your CD and what producer and engineer you want to work with, among other things.

In The Jar Studios provides artists and bands recording, producing, and the latest in recording technology services. We are sensitive to your vision and work to actualize your sound. Unlike most recording studios that are competitively rate driven, our studio is setup to tailor to the needs of our clients. Schedule a consultation for your project and we can develop an attractive rate for your project.

It is all about planning and preparation. Remember, no one plans to fail, but a lot of people fail to plan! For this article I am going to focus on the recording aspect of pre-production. Think of it as the recording you do before you record. I would recommend that you keep it simple and as inexpensive as possible.The idea is to discover what you need to do (change, improve) before you start racking up studio time.
