Recording a Demo
In today’s competitive music market of today’s music, it is more important than ever to have songwriter demos that sound very professional, with an excellent vocalist and excellent musicianship to give your songs the edge they need. Most busy producers and publishers listen to many songs every day. If the song doesn’t attract their interest in the first 10 or 15 seconds, they will very likely throw out your CD, assuming your song is amateurish and unpitchable to major artists, not giving your song the fair listen that it deserves. Many hit songs have been passed over because of weak demo production.
Even if you have good musicians, they may not, for various reasons, know how to play in such a way to target your song to a particular artist or style of music. It helps if you hire top studio musicians that have worked with major labels, major producers, and major artists, because they instinctively know what to play to make a strong demo, to give your song it’s best shot. These are the types of musicians and singers you’ll be getting on your recordings from Midi Magic Studio.
