  1. BEFORE I START: i would just like to say, this is mostly(not strictly) meant for music producers. If you're not a music producer/creator, you can obviously still read through this, but some users may not understand everything I'm saying. but still, feel free to read if you'd like. I AM IN NO WAY INTENDING TO OFFEND OR TAKE SHOTS AT ANY MUSIC PRODUCERS/DJ'S HERE I'd like if it everyone(or most people) read this first post before replying. And remember, please don't get offended because this is NOT a stab at anyone here who makes music, because if it was a stab at you, we would have to remember you're not the only people making music on computers. So here we go. Most people know what DJ'ing is. But do all of us really know what it stands for? DJ stands for disc jockey. And that is what hip-hop producers from the 90's and 80's, possibly 70's used. They used the vinyl discs to sample jazz music or whatever, chop it, and speed/slow it to their liking, then add a drum beat and a bassline, and claim it as their own beat. Which is called sampling. As the years went by, the meaning of the abbreviation DJ seems to have been forgotten, and just looked at "DJ" as it's own word. And now we have computers, with music producing software where you don't need any instruments, some don't even require money. I think that is amazing, and great that people can make their own music at home now. But should they really be calling themselves DJ's? I feel like this post MAY cause an argument or debate but please remember i'm not trying to insult anyone who makes music and calls themself a DJ. I personally think you should label yourself with whatever title you want. so a Music Producer is obviously someone who makes the beats, and controls how the song sounds and everything. But not all producers are DJ's, because they aren't using DISCS. And again, that's what DJ means, DISC JOCKEY, someone who makes music sampling from those vinyl physical discs. Even if you are using a real physical MPC, that's still not DJ'ing, but just producing. I myself used to use vinyl records to actually make music a while back, but never called myself a DJ. And as of right now, i'd DEFINITELY not call myself a DJ because I've been just using Reason 8, Maschine, and FL to make music. So i'd just call myself a producer. so what I mean is I don't really consider computer users who create music, as DJ's. but just producers. just my 2 cents. and here are the differences: DJ(Disc-Jockey) is someone who samples music from vinyl records. or scratches them. A DJ is considered a producer because they are making music at the same time as DJ'ing. PRODUCER is someone who makes the music, not specifically using vinyl records, but with use of just an MPC, or computer software. now if anyone wants to add onto that, or tell me what they think PLEASE DO SO. In all honesty, it's confusion that caused this post. I honestly do not understand what people mean by calling themselves DJ's while making music strictly on a computer. but please remember what I said i am in no way denying anyone's talent, or TELLING anyone what to do. i'm just saying what I think, and expecting someone to hopefully correct me or at least tell me what they think. (oh god i HATE my anxiety so mUCH! everytime i make a really long message like this to anyone, my fingers and toes get cold, and i start sweating, feeling hot and cold at the same time!)
  2. When I talk about producers, I mean those who regular work with voice actors and actresses, singers, in music and/or in animation. After being in a few experiences of both good and bad, I complied these comprehensive guidelines that will help you work with other contributors more easily. If you're making a song or project with another person who is doing vocals or voice acting, it might be the best feeling. However, not all things go according to plan, hence I've come up the things that many producers ignore about the burdens that you might be unaware of. I call this, the Producer's Code: The Editique for Voice Actors/Actresses and Vocalists. This list has been in the making since 2006 derived from various voice actors and actresses, producers and musicians. ♫♪│▌▌▌│▌▌│▌▌▌│▌▌│▌▌▌│▌▌│▌▌▌│▌▌│▌▌▌│▌▌│▌▌▌│▌▌│▌▌▌│▌▌│▌▌▌│▌▌│▌▌▌│▌▌│▌▌▌│▌▌│♪♫ Producer's Éditique For Voice Actors/Actresses and Vocalists. 1. Be specific. You may ask for redo's if you do not believe that your voice actor said the line the way you imagined it, but giving criticism without giving specific details is frustrating and will burn out your VA. Instead, record yourself saying the line with the emotion you had in mind so that your actor can get a better idea. VAs not psychic. 2. Send your voice actor the entire script or instrumental, or at least the part of the script that contains his or her character. If you're a musician sending vocal lyrics to a singer, be sure to send a rough draft of the instrumental. Sending the lines without context will sound awkward or misread when all the lines are added together in the project. 3. If you're scouting for a role, let your voice actor know what type of voice you're looking for, or send concept art. 4. Please give your voice actors a deadline. Otherwise VA lines might not appear until 2 months from now. 5. It is your responsibility to listen to a voice actor's demo before scouting them for a role. 6. Everyone has their preferred methods of casting, but simply "handing out parts" is generally not a smart move to make when casting. 7. Even if you're talking to the voice actor via skype chat about the files, send a copy to their e-mail box just to be safe. 8. There's no need to go on a forum and talk about how much you dislike them or what a terrible actor they are. Voice actors and actress are a tightly knit community - If you develop a reputation of spreading bad press other VAs won't want to meet a similar fate. 9. When doing long-term projects, please keep contact information on hand. 10. No matter what, make sure to credit your voice actors in the finished product. 11. Send a link or video or file copy to the VA of the final product. 12. When a VA has contacted you with an audition, or especially if you have contacted a VA, it is only common courtesy to email them a reply. 15. Proofread your script before sending it to your voice actors. 16. When your VA sends you lines, make sure you save them to a safe place, and keep them if you decide to get a new computer. Don't lose these at all costs! 17. Don't be afraid to be assertive with your project. Ask for lines to be redone if you need to. Set deadlines with authority. Just be specific - anything you can send us, such as concept art, voice clips for reference, etc. will be helpful in doing the voice the way you want it. 18. It's understandable if you're making a spoof of an anime or game and want the voices to sound close to the original. However, please consider that this isn't the same voice actor/actress that was in the game or movie, and chances are the VA will not be able to do an exact imitation. 19. Recasting: So your voice actor missed a deadline? The best thing to do is send them a friendly reminder asking them about their lines. If they still don't respond, send a notice that if they don't have their lines in by (insert date here), they will be recasted. It's a good idea to let your voice actors know if you'll be recasting so that they don't waste time recording lines you're not going to use. 20. Cancelling your project? Just be honest and let the VA know. 21. When a voice actor does work for you, do NOT take this as an extra e-mail address that you can add to forward chain letters to on your massive mailing list. 22. Do not digitally edit the pitch without first asking permission from the voice actor. 23. If the VA is working for free, don't be too hard and be reasonable about deadlines, redos, and be generous in voice direction (See Number 1).
