Tips For A

Great Recording

Session

Make the most of your studio time.

 

Rehearse as much as possible.  Know your material inside and out.  Work out any riffs, parts, fills, or vocals before arriving at the studio. You want to spend your studio time recording tracks, not rehearsing.

 

Practice playing with a metronome.  This will help keep the tempo from speeding up or slowing down. If a click track is needed in the recording process, you will feel comfortable playing with one.

 

Make sure any equipment you plan to use in the recording session is in tiptop shape.  All instruments should be tuned using the same tuner and all fretted instruments have the correct intonation.

 

If you use your own drums, make sure your kit has fresh heads and that the heads are tuned properly.   

 

Keep distractions to a minimum. Limit the number of people to only those that need to be there.

 

Sometimes things don't go as planned, so be flexible and able to improvise. The unexpected can be turned into a plus by using a little imagination.

 

Have a list of the song titles and the key that each song is in.  Also, have written permission for any copyrighted material that is going to be recorded, if not in public domain.
