The Producers Panel: Fresh Spins on Studio Hit-Making

The endgame may have changed – streaming versus terrestrial radio and albums – but there are a lot of backward glances in the studio when it comes to hands-on song-shaping. Some orchestration and arrangement practices that go back generations are still effective and sound innovative with a little tweaking. Extended harmonies are a go-to. And old-school chord progressions are taking on new sounds. What is the most useful new tech and what’s the most gimmicky? And is it possible there’s a generation of music producers who learned their game on YouTube? This panel of top producers will lay out how hit-making has changed, and how it hasn’t.
