Hello Everybody, My band has been working in our studio for a couple of months on a four song demo (I know you are wincing already, at the time span, but bear with me). It is in final mix phase and I am generally happy with the results, but I have allowed things to go on that go against my instincts. Much of this has to do with the fact some of us haven't had much experience being recorded (including me) and some of us haven't had much experience recording (pretty much everyone else). Overall I think the project is a "win" for us- good quality, positive experience, no fatalities, lots learned- but we are embarking on to finish up another five or six songs for an album. I am now thinking about hiring in an outside person to produce, so that we don't lose ourselves. This is all fairly low-budget, I haven't even started to consider how much we can afford, but I am leaning towards this. Any thoughts? Cheers, Doc.
