"Remote" Session Musicians

Member for

Didn't know if anyone would be interested, but I found a guy who will record drum tracks to your music on ADAT for $75. He's got some pretty good credentials. I'm considering using him, but haven't taken the plunge yet.

These kinds of things are useful to guys like me who can't record live drums in their project studio, but occasionally need a real drummer.

sampling I just can't drop it

Sorry, I can't let it drop.

NO IT CAN'T! The act of copying or sampling any portion of a recording without the permission of the copyright holder is illegal. If the sampling is done for personal use you can be prosecuted and fined for contravention of copyright law. If the sampling is done for financial gain in addition to the prosecution and fine you can also be sued for damages.

Assistant Engineer Tips

Here's a couple tips for those who want to be the best assistant out there. (I skip some of the gimme's like "Show up time" and "documentation")

For tracking:

  1. As soon as you know the BPM calculate the delay times, write them on console tape & stick it above a delay unit on the FX rack
  2. Write out SMPTE (or ABS) numbers down for every 4 bars. This will help the engineer determine where everything will go before any vocals are laid. (on the back of the track sheet is great)

The future of major studios verses home based Pro Tools/

Member for

Just an observation here.

We have tried to get the major recording studios ( the ones governed by record labels) to add their studios to RO ( http://www.recording.org ) but have yet had one comments from any of them. The indie studios are very supportive.

Does this shows the power of Pro Tools/DAW's and the indie markets competing potential now and in the future for the recording industry.

`What would you guys/gals suggest as an investment the Distressor or the whole Waves Gold Bundle ?

"Songwriter" Demos vs "Artist" Demos

Member for

This could also be posted in the Producer's area, but I was here, so...

Over the past umpteen years, I've been doing mostly OPM (Other People's Music). I've now begun working with a co-writer/lyricist on my own stuff (finally!). I've had to make a few adjustments in this regard. I thought I'd post some of the differences I've noticed and see if anyone can add to the list or change my mind about these...
