 HOW TO BECOME A RECORD PRODUCER
To become a record producer, you're going to have to be able to promote yourself in the early stages before you have established a track record of any kind.
No reputable record company would intentionally pay a producer even a penny less than he was entitled to in the contract (although they might haggle over even these tiny amounts during the negotiation), but the complexity of the music retail industry means that opportunities for making large accounting errors exist in abundance.
Producers are not always as clued in as they could be as to what their value is in the marketplace.

 The Record Producer as Architect
The modern sound recording is an art form in its own right, fundamentally different from mere musical "compositions" written on paper or performed live from scores.
The recording studio gives producers access to a sonic palette infinitely larger than the simple sets of notes available to previous generations of composers and musicians.
Sound recordings are not composed but rather constructed piecemeal on tape or computer disk in the studio, a process that not only makes possible previously unimaginable techniques (such as split-second edits and "illogical" juxtapositions of instruments) but also places equal importance on ingredients like reverb and other non-notatable or environmental elements.

 The role of a record producer in your career - by Bobby Borg :: Galaris Independent Musicians :: music industry ...   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The producer helps the artist get the “most” out of each studio performance, and works towards making that artist’s work sound current in the marketplace even several years after his or her record is released.
The producer may ask for a written agreement stipulating that if you get signed, he or she will receive a fee and a percentage of record sales in return for services rendered, and may even stipulate production responsibility on the final product.
Whomever the producer ends up being on a recording project, it’s important that everyone involved; from the artist, to the label A and R person, to the producer himself, feels confident that the resulting product will be what they had initially envisioned.

 How to Become a Record Producer: What is a Record Producer?
Maybe an older and more experienced producer will have more respect in the band's eyes, or maybe they need someone who is able to share their vision and will simply smooth over whatever rough edges need to be smoothed (and leave well alone the rough edges that need to remain rough!).
The freelance producer will be paid by the record company (who will get that money back from the band's share of the eventual profits) and he or she is then free to go on to work for another record company as they please.
Not only will the entrepreneur producer be entitled to a larger slice of the financial cake, he or she is also in control of an ongoing project which will hopefully continue to be successful, rather than staggering from each one-off project to the next.

The talent of the musician may not translate into talent as a music producer or recording engineer, and so the entire music demo suffers, even though the singer and the song may have been outstanding.
With a good recording studio and engineer, bands can often achieve decent results on their own and may not need a producer in the earlier stages, such as recording the music demo.
Often, the music producer will help write the music, play some or all of the instruments and be responsible for every aspect of the musical production, from the sonic quality of the recording to keeping things within budget.
