Challenges Artist Face In Music Production

Most artistes are faced with the issue that there are no good producers around them.
If you fall into this category of artistes, I will be sharing with you how you can make the best out of this situation.
We are in the internet age where distance is no longer a barrier when it comes to sending digital files from one place to another and that has opened up opportunities for both artistes and good producers.

Assuming your beat is ready, there are three stages a song goes through in the studio:
1. There recording stage – This is where the vocals are recorded. This stage requires that you go to the studio.
2. The mixing stage – At this stage, editing of the vocals is done. It is at this stage that arranging, comping, and adding of effects are done.
The vocals are properly arranged, noise is removed, unavoidable errors are corrected, and the whole song is made to sound good at this stage.
3. The mastering stage -This is the stage where the song is prepared for final distribution. The song is basically made to sound louder and the standard output format is set.
Now, if you happen to be in a location where there are no good producers, you can go to any of the studios near you and do the recording stage. Just ensure that the studio has a good mic and sound card.

Tell the producer to arrange the vocals the way you want it to be and remove all unnecessary audio so that the size of the overall file will not be too large.
After that, collect the raw data file. The raw data file is what you can send to any good producer to do the mixing and mastering.
The size of an average raw data file can be between 200mb to 500mb which can be sent to any producer over the internet.
Let me point out that this process will be more expensive because most studios will still collect the same amount they charge for recording, mixing, and mastering.
You will also pay the professional engineer to do his job and let’s not forget the amount you will spend on data.
If you care about the final quality of your song, this information will be of good use to you.

  • Challenges artist face in music production- Okoh Nwachukwu

    For someone to sit down think and compile a song is not an easy task even those that process and produce it for me and you to listen and enjoy. So it is not so easy we have to appreciate them by listening to their music

  • Another reason why they face challenges is that some of them don't scrutinize themselves very well to be  sure that music is their calling before diving into it. That's why somany face challenges

  • This is a wonderful but expensive process, why don't you seek a professional studio and producer around, price it and bargain for a fixed amount then do your recording, mixing and mastering and you are good to go

  • Upcoming Artiste need support and spornsorship to get to where they want to be, am also an Artiste and I know how the Industry goes, when these upcoming Artiste finally get spornsors some of these sponsorers might take them for granted and use them to get what they want, but they won't allow them to do what they want like releasing songs often, some might release just 1 song in a year when the record label have finally gotten to their target they needed from the Artiste...

    That's d problem Artiste have most especially those upcoming Artiste who are signed into record labels

    I really appreciate them especially those ones that are after the morality of  our nation and may God help them all.

  • Artists actually go through a lot in music production cause lots of individuals have there own tastes of music 

    so they really go through a lot to ensure the quality of music they produce is loved by the majority

  • I will just say this that there is no successful person that doesn't face challenges before succeeding. Therefore, for the artist, everyone know the various challenges they pass through before coming to the limelight as being successful.

  • I also think the greatest challenge is changing of style,  some artist are good in English songs and English rap but we're forced to change go Afro rap or song
