Twelve Things Your Band Should Know Before Going into the Studio « Things I Meant to Blog – 2.0

As most of you who visit the blog are probably aware, I record bands sometimes. I like doing that kind of thing. I record my OWN stuff all the time, but I particularly enjoy recording someone else. It forces me to think differently and to try things I never would have done with my own music—mostly just because I’m pretty much dialed in to my “sound” and I don’t need to experiment to find it. I love the recording process.

Most of the time.

Sometimes bands can make the engineering/mastering process, which I LOVE, a real pain in the ass. The enjoyment of everyone in the project hinges on some very basic issues between the band and the engineer, and as a service to musicians (and as a hopefully fun read for anyone who wonders what a recording session looks like) I thought I’d offer a few suggestions that a band can take to make their project an easier effort for all involved. I came up with 12 off the top of my head.
