Time in the studio is precious, and as such, a producer will benefit from taking some time before the recording gets doing to run through a checklist and see if everything is in order. Most of these factors, however, deal with the band – not the equipment. Is the band sounding tight? Are they in a groove? And can the vocalist cover the needed range? If so, you're ready to roll. If not, things might need to be sorted out – preferably outside of the studio.
- Studio time is valuable, so producers and artists need to make the most of it.
- In doing so, run through a basic list of questions about your band before you get going with a recording session.
- Is the band in a groove? Are the vocals in-range? If so, great. If not, iron things out and regroup.
“hances are that there will come a time when your band is playing either in rehearsal or in the studio and suddenly there’s a train wreck where something sounds way off”
