Your Session - Decide what the purpose of your recording is, and ensure all members
How Many Songs Should I Record - Decide this before the session starts as this can kill time.
Quality or Quantity - Quality!!!! Industry types rarely get past the 4th song.
Arrangements - Rehearse your songs and make sure all band members know their part(s).
Scores - Have all scores/ lyric sheets written and composed.
Less is More - Your recording is not the time to try out your chops. Remember the song is the most important thing, not over indulgent playing.
Equipment - Turn up on time with all equipment checked and ready.
Mixing - This is done after all recording. we apply EQ, dynamics and effects to each track and then set individual track volumes and panning.
During mastering, the final stereo mix will be processed to even out the highs and lows, boost the overall volume, and make the audio more consistent.
