The Saltmine Staff (Audio Team)
|The Saltmine Studios’ talented production team can help you take your music to the next level. We have an excellent staff of producers with over 50 years of combined experience in the music industry available to you. Although our engineers will always offer helpful input and opinions when welcome to assist in your creative process, you may wish to hire one of us as your dedicated producer. The Saltmine’s engineers are all talented musicians and for a nominal fee we can play on your songs, or if you prefer we can introduce you to The Valley’s most talented studio musicians available for hire.A dedicated producer will help you realize your creative vision while making efficient use of studio time and maintaining the quality suitable for today’s music industry standards. Although many artists feel it’s most appropriate for them to produce themselves, they soon realize it’s much easier on the creative mind to leave some of the decision making up to someone more experienced in the studio to guide them on the path that’s best for them.
Some artists fear that hiring a producer will cause their music to take a different direction or cause them to lose control of their vision. However, our ideas as producers are to make your music something you can be proud of for the rest of your life, and hopefully attain widespread acceptance and success. Producer rates are determined on a per-project basis depending on your needs and budget. National and local independent producers are available as well. Although we are all musicians and composers at heart, we love it when we can assist you with your creative process, in a way that makes it better than anyone could have made it alone.
If you are interested in music tracks, especially for Pop, R&B and Hip Hop, we can provide you with the hottest producers in the business, from Swizz Beatz, Deezel, Che Vicious, Dame Grease, P-Killer tracks or our own staff of independent producers on the rise.
