A comprehensive guide for bands preparing to record amplified music http://www.absoluterecordings.co.uk
the following guidelines come from years of experience working with artists in studio recording. These are by no means concrete rules but our goal in presenting these guidelines is to make you familiar with the process so you can concentrate on your performance and creativity on studio. We're sure the list will unearth some unanswered questions, so feel free to call us to discuss your specific recording situation.
Always plan to do fewer songs rather than a lot of songs quickly in studio recording. There is nothing worse than having lots of songs on a cd that you are embarrassed to play to people, and nothing more satisfying than listening to one song that you are completely happy with, remember, if there was a magic formula, everybody would be using it. Quality takes time.
Focus on tight bass and drums. It is critical that these two players have a "locked" performance. During the initial studio recording music session, view all the other tracks as support for an energetic, tight drum and bass pass. If the other instruments play recording a "keeper" part, consider it a blessing. Have a drummer and bass player extra rehearsal before the studio. Plan to overdub other parts so that we can focus strictly on their performance, if possible.
Analyze your song structure studio recording music . Look for spice and other elements that will make the track more interesting. This could include percussion, background harmony parts, sound effects, guitar/key fills, etc. Be sure to ask the engineer for input.
FInally, at all cost, keep it fun. It will translate into the best finished product of studio music. The more prepared you are, the more fun the session will be! Work through creative differences outside the studio and if tensions rise in the session, take evasive action. Move on to the next song and come back to the one you're having trouble with or take a break.Terms are 50/25/25. 50% at least one month in advance to secure dates, 25% at beginning of mix in studio music, balance due upon delivery of masters.
