There are two things to be considered when doing a recording. The first would the technical parts, how does it all go together, while the other is the artistic side, where creativity comes into play. Putting them together can be quite a task, just imagine all these being processed in your brain. Most would say organizing is the key, compartmentalize similar tasks to be more efficient and focus more on your performance.
Begin with the app you use on your mobile phone or tablet, DAW’s, for example, there are those that are complicated to use while some are a walk in the park.
