Ep. 36: Collaboration and Songwriting with Dane Myers

We have another great guest this week, as Scott is joined by Dane Myers, owner of Custom-Tracks.com, a recording studio in Orlando Florida that offers online recording and production services to artists all over the world. Dane is a great producer in his own right, and a self-made audio guru with a ton of great insight on making great music.

This show is all about collaboration and songwriting, with some additional great recording and mixing tips thrown in. Dane not only walks you through how he got his service going, but reveals the keys to success when writing a new song or working with others in the music industry. The audio world has changed forever, and with the power of the internet, musicians and producers have access to more knowledge and creativity than ever before!

The audio tip of the week is about the power of saturation. If you’re wanting a “fat” sound, or even just wanting to add more color and character to a mix, often saturation can be the key. There are many great plugins out there you can use, and of course other great outboard saturation options. Just don’t forget about the power of parallel saturation when you start experimenting!

What You’ll Learn in This Episode:

  • Audio tip of the week: Harness the power of saturation in your mixes.
  • Dane’s #1 recording, mixing, and production tips.
  • How hiring session musicians can take your recordings from good to great.
  • What separates great songwriting from average songwriting.
  • The keys to successfully collaborating with others on musical projects.
