You've got a song. You've made a demo. Now, how do turn it into a hit? This tutorial will show you the inner workings of producing a hit song!
"From Demo To Master" is a journey. It begins with the demo song Sunshine Afternoon by the band Dirty Goods from Newport, Wales. Enter top UK record producer Greg Haver with his hundreds of records with top British artists like The Manic Street Preachers, Melanie C, The Lostprophets and Bullet For My Valentine. Put Greg and the band together for a marathon, multi-day, lockout session at Modern World Studios and watch them re-record all the parts, track by track, under Greg's watchful eyes and golden ears!
(Included in this tutorial is the ability to download excerpts of the song in as it appears in its different stages of production! If you're a MPV downloader or subscriber you'll find the link "Sample Tracks" at the top of this page below the Release Date!
Be at Greg's side, as he produces the band in this one-of-a-kind audio recording documentary. You'll witness the creative process and get priceless audio recording tips as you benefit from Mr. Haver's unparalleled recording industry experience. You'll get inside a top producer's head, as he explains why he makes his massively important song-enhancing decisions.
From Demo To Master takes you step by step from the initial demo, the re-tracking, the mixing and the mastering by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sounds in NYC and finally back to Modern World Studios in the UK for a final listen and comparative analysis that will blow you away!

Very cool to see the lifecycle of a song progress through the studio. Interesting to see all of the work outside of recording and mixing that goes into the production effort.

A good general overview. Would have liked to see a little more detail on the EQ'ing, compression levels and mic placements coming in from the source during tracking. Every producer has their own style.
