What are your thoughts on this practice for recording yourself by yourself: 1. Record a track to get levels (any instrument): 2. Apply mild eq and gentle compression based on instrument. 3. Record a keeper track 4. Bounce down to a new track. My reasons (which are probably wrong) for doing this is so I get to apply additional eq and compression and/or other fx on a fresh new track, without worrying about the initial modifications. I do understand that I won't be able to go back and change them, but to me it seems cleaner. This is the step I am most unsure of. 5. Record all tracks following steps 1-4. 6. Bulk mixing stage: worry about how tracks sound together, apply specifix eq, panning, compression, other fx until I am happy with final product. 7. Bounce down to one stereo track. 8. Do whatever mastering you desire. Is there anything signifigantly wrong with my process. I know its most likely very crude, but I am worried about a serious flaw about step 4, bouncing down individual tracks to "save" initial eq and compression. Thank you for any input!
