The Recording Process?
Every recording project has to begin somewhere. This is the time to set up the whole band, parts of the band, a large MIDI rig, an orchestra, or just a single musician with a single instrument. Sometimes called "basic tracks" or "rhythm tracks", it is this foundation on which the entire recording will be based. Often drum tracking will happen first, but be sure to sit down with your engineer to plan your process so that you aren't wasting any of your band members' time or ours! click here to read more!
Frequently Asked Questions?
Do I have to use a click track?
Click tracks (or metronomes) can be very helpful in the recording process. Not only can they help the artist to record with steadier tempos, but these days, with the advent of computer based solutions for recording, using a metronome can assist the artist in making greater use of many modern techniques such as "cut and paste" editing. If you are a solo performer and have no plans for adding other instrumentation to your project, click tracks are not necessary. Of course, you are in control of your session, so what you choose to do or not do is up to you. We offer experienced advice but ultimately, it's your call.
Should I choose digital or analog recording?
The selection of basic recording medium can greatly effect the process. For instance, recording on a tape based system can be very different from a hard disk based system. Different methods of storage, editing, archiving and back-up apply to each system and can present both financial and operational advantages. It is best to talk with an experienced engineer to see how to best achieve the sound you are going for.
What is included in a "LOCK OUT" day?
This term means something different in every studio, but at Engine Room Audio, a "LOCK OUT" day includes ten hours with an experienced engineer, full access to our live room and mix room, set up and breakdown, and a rough mix of the day's recording (upon request only).
