band recording

Discussion in 'Recording' started by MixYourOwnBeat, Mar 31, 2005.

  1. Me and My buddy are getting into productions seriously and we're both 16. We have been recording rhymes and making hem their beats for a while but we wanna start recording bands. We have a small booth for like 2 people for the rhymes but we have a whole room next to it in the basement which we are gonna soundproof for the band recordings, what is the best way to go about this? special mics? and how about a program for the comp? we use sonar for recording now and acid for beat making but we are the kind of kids who like to save up mopney for the best equipment. I'm young and full of questions so ull hear alot from me lol

    Buy the book Modern Recording Techniques by David Miles Huber. It is a great introduction to recording. Sonar is a fine app and will take you a long way.

    I don't know man, if you've already done a fair amount of recording ( and I believe you have?), then you will probably be disappointed at the books simplicity. It reads more like a big glossary and doesn't really tell much in the way of technique. I've been meaning to latch hold of the Mastering Audio book by Bob Katz at some point. I hear it is really good.

    Reggie is right; it is an introductory book, but he said he was 16, and he was wanting to start recording bands, so I think this book would be appropriate.

    The Katz book is awesome.
