Hey guys! Today I had a reunion with a possible producer for new Cirse's album. He is a really nice guy and we talked a lot about the importance of the song by itself. He talked about doing a very intensive pre-production of the songs. I gave him 10 new songs and he will give me his opinion in a week. The guy is called Alejandro Vazquez and the last two albums that eh produced are:






I just wanted to share this experience and also to ask you if you have any producer that you like. I use to follow producers discographies.

Sounds very good! Nicely produced tracks!
The only thing I would suggest is when you are working with a producer make sure he has good connections to bring your music to the next level! It is more important than producer itself! I know a lot of guys who can produce records and only a few that also will promote their work after everything is done!

Yeah! This guy would do only the job for the album, the songs and the recording. We already have a manager and press agents that are working on that. It's true that promotion is as important as the songs so we have that in mind. smile.gif

Time spent in pre prep is always good as it will minimise time wasted at recording/mixing.

Personally I like producers who can communicate a clear idea of what they want and who then allow us engineers to get on with our work. The producers who are annoying are the ones who can't communicate clearly and/or don't have at least a basic understanding of the different stages of production and so have unreasonable expectations and/or are inconsistent and/or try to tell us how to record/mix/master.

This is a fast translation of the lyrics.

In the roar of the anxiety
The mind begins to warm,
The nightmare becomes real
Upon awakening!

Hooooo!
We swindled terror,
Making fun of all
The world injected acid
Straight to my hundred.

My sword desenfundare,
My salvation empuñare.
We will attack the roots
That bind us!

Hooooo!
We swindled terror,
Making fun of all
The world injected acid
Straight to my hundred.

Hooooo!
We dropped the mantle,
We cover my vision.
The mortal world injected acid
In your hundred.

Acid! (x2)

Pretend, that you do not accept you.
Pretending that to you, do not accept
A full embrace.

Hooooo!
We swindled terror,
Making fun of all
The world injected acid
Straight to my hundred.

Hooooo!
We dropped the mantle,
We cover my vision,
The world injected acid
the acid
In our hundred.

Cirse is the name of this flower:

Carajo means something that I can't say here... blink.gif The band is very known and that word doesn't sound bad but the translation is like a bad word. but you can search for it here: http://translate.google.es/

Fortinero you might be thinking of "mastering" instead of producing? They are hiring the producer to come in and help make the tracks and go in to the studio with them, right Gab? That's why they are in "pre production" which is the prep work for going in to the studio.

But I like your idea! What if he put up some stems (single tracks, like drums, bass, guitar) and we do our own mixdown of a song?

That would be fun and good practice mixing wink.gif But the tracks are already recorded so it's mostly a mixing challenge. I'd be in for a go!

hahaha those are also great producers! but I don't want to add latin percussion or folk instruments to my music right now so I think that Santaolalla wouldn't work with us...

Yeah Todd, the idea is to work on the songs. We just have our first reunion and he will listen to the songs before start a work toghether but we made the first step.

I'm not sure if that's what fortinero said, he talked about producing a song, don't know how it would be using the forum... let's see what he says....

I was thinking about this: you upload the song as you create it and then we hear it and tell what we would like to hear in that song, for example: a longer/shorter solo, a chorus, silences, vocal armonies or melodies, bridges,a drum solo, a dog barking, a girl moaning...wait can i say that? unsure.gif ........smile.gif etc etc.

is not that what a producer does? and may be you get some cool ideas, who knows.....
