Article: 5 Essential Tips for Becoming a Successful Producer

Post by AnthonySanFrancisco » Fri Sep 18, 2015 12:46 pm

Hey Tape-Pals,

I'm Anthony Gordon, the artist relations guy for Avid and Pro Tools. I've been blogging about recording stuff lately and I wanted to share my article for this week, 5 Essential Tips for Becoming a Successful Music Producer.

http://www.avidblogs.com/5-essential-ti ... -producer/

I hope you dig it. Although, I've been in the business for about 15 years, so I suspect plenty of you dear people will be sharpening your pitchforks and getting your rotting veggie out to pelt me with. Which is ok :)

Anyway, I hope you read the article and find it useful. If you think I'm way of base about anything, I'm all ears about that too. Dig in!

seems unfortunate (perhaps just to me) that your first post on this forum is just a link to something on your company's website...

Sorry to offend...

Hi there,

I didn't realize that would bum anybody out. I thought my article would be something of interest to the community here since it's a fairly inside look at music production. I don't know if it matters, but there aren't any plugs for Avid stuff or Pro Tools or anything like that in my story. It was really meant to be something informative based on the experience I've picked up...

But I do get your point. I'll make sure to contribute stuff that isn't just posted on my blog on the Avid site. I've been a Tape Op reader and a supporter of what I think they stand for maybe 14 years or so. No disrespect was intended to any of the folks here or to the magazine. I wouldn't post anything corny like links to sales promos or anything like that. I'm not trying to shill for anything. At least not here ;)

OK ASF,

I read the article. My favorite tip was number 4. And I do strive to combine both of those aspects mentioned (both a personal signature sound/vision, and also to empower the artist to achieve more than they thought possible).

Also, somewhat unrelated-- dad-gum, didn't Ronnie Spector look fine? I would not have locked her in the basement, but that's just me... Maybe that's tip number six-- "Do Not Lock Your Wife (or Anyone) In The Basement."
