I am in no means a pro, but with a little help, maybe I can get close. A couple of questions about tracking. When an artist does most of his work on a Keyboard type workstation(Korg Triton, Roland Phantom) is it normal to just go direct into the board? Would he strip all the effects off his work, like reverb and EQ, Panning, and leave that to the engineer/producer? Does it matter? I know each individual would probably do it his own way, but what is the "professional norm"? Same thing with guitar, is the reverb on the amp used or not, does using the amps reverb cause any problems in the control room?
