I was recently asked by a musical peer for some advice regarding recording in the studio for the first time. It can be daunting to go into a recording studio, even after going in a few times. The pressure! Expectations! Not everyone is going the studio route these days since it’s fairly easy to record right at home on your computer, or even your smartphone. I miss the days of recording on cassette players myself, but tapes ARE making a come back 😉 I prefer to go into a studio for most of my recordings because I like to leave it to the techie pros to work their magic, and be less inhibited in my performance without worry that it wasn’t captured. Here are some of my answers to my friend’s questions and I hope that they help you if you’re considering embarking into a studio! Do you, dear reader, have any recording advice for first-timers that I’m missing? Please comment below and enlighten us!
