For the love of God... Sound Good!
Being Prepared For Recording Sessions Saves A Lot
Production, Engineering, Mixing, Mastering, Digital Music Placement.
Be Prepared! Don't let this happen to you!
Plan on using a click track! Make sure your drummer is comfortable playing to the click at the defined tempo.
Record each song you plan on recording in the studio during live gigs and pre-production rehearsals. Simple cassette recording using a boom box may well reveal weak parts of songs.
Have all musical parts and vocal parts worked out in advance.
Have all the guitar solos well defined!
If using a computer or sequencer, prepare all of your sequenced material previous to your recording session(s).
Rehearse more songs than you plan on recording. It is hard to predict which songs will sound strong once recorded. (If you want a four-song EP, have six songs ready to record.
Sleep a lot.
Rest your ears.
FEEL what you play, and play what you know.
Now Letís Have FUN!
Thank you for contributing to the Indie music scene! Without you, music would be uninspired and all sound the same.
