you create words and a melody to fit.

Musicians put sounds in the right places.​

The "Arranger" selects the instruments and sounds

to fit the song.​ A "Music Producer" is the Director.

They over-see every creative aspect

to complete the song.


The "Engineer"  is the person who makes sure

all of the music and vocals get recorded accurately.

The "Mixer"  balances out volume levels & adds  necessary

"Mastering Engineers" take the final mix

and complete  the process with Mastering tools

to get the song radio ready.
