Montclair, NJ (August 26, 2016)–Producer/engineer Bobby Owsinski has authored a second edition of his tome, The Music Producer’s Handbook, Second Edition, published by Hal Leonard Books. Among the topics covered are the producer’s multiple responsibilities and all the elements involved in a typical production, including budgeting, contracts, selecting the studio and engineer, hiring session musicians, and even getting paid.
The Music Producer’s Handbook covers the mechanics of production, from analyzing, troubleshooting, and fixing a song that isn’t working to getting the best performance and sound out of a band or vocalist. In addition, Owsinski tackles how a producer may have to be a diplomat, a confidant, and an amateur psychologist all at once.
The new edition also includes new chapters on self-production, small studio production, and how songwriter-producer and engineer-producer hybrids make money in our new digital music world.
It also features several new interviews with some of the best-selling producers from different musical genres, who offer advice on getting started, getting paid and making hits.
