What does a recording studio producer, vocal producer, vocal consultant, vocal arranger, music director DO?
I was asked to clarify what a vocal producer did recently, and did it mean the same thing as a vocal arranger. Here are some services available for recording projects and live performances that may interest you and help you define, find and hire what you really need: RECORDING STUDIO PRODUCER Like a commander-in-chief, this is the over-all point person you choose to get your project recorded. You will negotiate a flat fee, an hourly fee and/or for "percentage points" of the sale of your project. Among the duties this person assumes are -
- Consulting with you about what you want in a final product, as well as helping you understand the process and the costs involved in the kind of project you choose.
- Assessing who you are as an artist, what your current vocal and songwriting ability is and whether or not you need to increase your abilities with a vocal coach and/or do some co-writing before recording to give you the results you need for your goals.
- Choosing or helping you choose the best songs for your project and obtaining any necessary licenses for those final songs.
- Doing pre-production such as: discovering best keys, tempos, instruments and background vocals (bgv's)
- Choosing and booking dates for the studio, engineers, musicians & bgvs.
- Producing the instrumental tracking and the vocals for the songs, or enlisting the services of a vocal producer or consultant.

I think people will appreciate the clarification of these roles. Often it is easy to question and misunderstand a role and so those that do, will find this very helpful. All play an important role in the success of the end product and bring a unique angle to a song.
