Psst!...This Is One Of The Secrets Behind Making Hits
Studio B: “The Solo Rig” is our pre-production room, geared towards the ambitious artist who does it all. Studio B is the perfect room to meet up in if you’re creating with others you may not yet be comfortable with at your home studio.
Pre-production starts when you decide you want to record and release your song. It is the process of composition, arrangement, and planning with recording and mixing in mind. Pre-production is probably the most important stage of any recording project.
I know you have heard of the multiple artists going into nice studios and recording their verses in one take, or how about the artist who says they made this song in their bedroom studio? Yes, some artists are talented enough and have practiced to the point that they have mastered their craft and they can go in a studio and freestyle a verse with ease. But, that’s not the ideal way to create records, and it’s not how most signed artists create.
What you don’t see is the pre-production work they put in, this is truly where artist development starts. The artist who created the song in their bedroom studio is most likely referring to the pre-production phase and later finished the record in a higher quality studio.
As an indie artist, you need to maximize your budget and pre-production is a way to master your song performance and also save a lot of money when planning a new project.
After you feel that you have perfected your song, move up to Studio A for the highest quality recording, mixing, and mastering to complete your project.
