Scott Storch: Tuning Kicks, Vocals, And Radio Friendliness

Scott Storch discusses the importance of tuning kick drums and experimentation to achieve a proper mix.  He also goes on to offer advice about changing the key of a track in order to allow contrast for speakers to accurately represent lower frequencies. 

In the second segment, Storch goes on to address concerns relating to the blending a multitude of vocals while maintaining a desirable depth for leads vs. backgrounds.  Unexpectedly, significant weight is placed on songwriting and performance as opposed to studio techniques.

Perhaps his greatest insight is provided during the third video where he offers wisdom about radio friendliness and the common mistake of overstuffing a track until it becomes “noisy”.
