Short, consise walkthrough on a typical production job

This video series "protocols" a typical production job where the producer is given a rough sketch take of the final song and is building the product up from scratch. The presenter does a very good job of highlighting his steps, starting with a synced raw track, basic drums, bass, then guitars, tweaks and finally a new vocal track.
Do not expect to find much too many "tricks" or "hidden secrets", this one really is about the workflow, the general approach and giving you a guide to actually getting the job done, leaving the actual work to you.
The videos do not show how the presenter is actually recording takes (they do show him setting up S1 for the takes), comps are only discussed in theory (not the actual comping process). Also, the tedious work "in between takes" has been graciously been left out. However, this is not a critic, since the result (this video series) is a perfect guideline for someone who has never before produced a song based on what seems like "useless fun recording" (which the recording clearly isn't, you just have to know how to deal with it).
To make this even more clear: I welcome this kind of walk-through and prefer it over detail-crazy "tutorials" that run for 8 hours showing and explaining every single mouse click. This one shows WHAT to do, HOW to approach it and WHY (with the result being an honest, direct outcome of what was shown in the videos).
Unfortunately the videos only respect Apple users. Qualifier keys for other OSs are ignored, quite some time is actually spent on Mac workflows, which have no significance for users of more commonly used OSs. Personally I would welcome recordings in higher ("modern") resolution, but that's got nothing to do with the overall value of this series.

Superb!

Every practical point about production is well explained. This is a 'can't stop watching' series. Very well done Scott. Taking a simple recording from a client and turning it into a fully professional sounding track makes fantastic viewing. Instruction backed up with practical advice and example. Tutorials at their very best, I could watch Scott working all day.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I began playing music at the age of 5 and have never looked back.

2. What training have you had?

I studied all forms of guitar when I was young, as well as organ and piano, and then moved on to bass, drums, and music engineering and production as I grew into my 20s. I attended and graduated from the Institute of Audio Research with honors in 2000, and began my music production company, Stranded On A Planet, in 2004.

3. When did you get into recording?

I started recording on a Tascam 4 track in 1994, and then moved onto the Roland VS series recorders back in the day. From there, the evolution to computers and hybrid analog/digital music production came after years of working and looking for a sound and workflow that facilitated world class sound with creative, intuitive use.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I have produced albums for and with dozens of artists, including Nadia Ali, Cavalier King, The Hawthorne Effect, Tritonal, A Friend Called Fire, Voice of Addiction, Martha Berner and The Significant Others, and Michael Angelo Batio to name a few. I compose for Warner/Chappell, Harpo, The GiggleBellies, Beachbody, and several other corporate clients. I was the executive producer and co-host of “The Top Shelf”, a video series for Guitar Center Pro that focused on high end audio equipment usage and interviews with the designers of the equipment. And, of course, I am now working with Groove 3.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

In my years of musical work, which range from touring the globe as the guitarist for Nadia Ali, to writing and recording commercial/television music, to helping audio developers test their products, I have worked extensively on both the production and the artistic side. I have also spent a lot of time working with virtually all audio processing tools and sample libraries for my work, so after putting all of that into practical use for my job, I feel I can offer a real world perspective on how these things add up to a creative end product and a successful career
