Composers are the little guys and don't have a lot of leverage (unless every composer in the world united against this), so they often have to take what they can get or risk being black-listed. Just criminal....

The Recording Revolution

Even if you have great musicians and vocalists in the studio, there can be little bits here and there that are less than awesome. Taking the time to edit tracks before mixing may give you a much better final product.

After you’ve recorded your latest song, JUST before you mix it, there is one crucial step you need to take – and most people skip right over it.

This one step can take a good recording and turn it into an even better one. And turn a slightly amateur one into a more polished and professional one.

All before the mixing process even begins.

It makes a HUGE difference in your final mix. It might be simple. And no, it isn’t sexy. But the pros are doing it – and so should you.

Songwriting: Why it takes more than two to make a hit nowadays

As publisher for several songwriters, it is easy to see how good songs (or ideas) can be made great with input from one or more other people... With the current "mainstream music" norm being average of over 4 songwriters per project, one asks if there can be too many writers on a song? Does it matter to music fans? Or do they just want music that moves them?

Music Week’s analysis of the 2016 Top 100 Singles – as revealed first in yesterday’s much-talked about Music Week front page story – reveals that nowadays, you need an average of 4.53 people to write the very biggest hits
