Being Prepared, what tips could be suggested in getting prepared for a first time in a studio?
How close should we practice the songs before we begin in the studio; still keeping them fresh sounding?
I use this click trick for years now, and you're right, drummers love it !
One matter should be considered though : if your click is too "groovy", laying rythm tracks along with it makes it "unmutable". I mean it becomes part of the song groove ! It happens to me once, and the click pattern ended up as a synth perc track in the final mix !
Man, I love this job !
what do you guys do about mastering? what tools do you use? Is every mastering house accepting PT files?
I use the C4 and L1. It works excellent for me. I use WavesC4 only at the master track of the entire session, then bounce the session in 24 bit to two tracks, then open a new session up in 24 bit and import the two tracks.
The L1 goes on the master fade then and I, not to much boost and brick wall it,
I dither and save it as a 16 bit MLCD.
Anyone ever encountered problems during the registration process? I want to avoid any unforeseen obstacles.
The only whey it will work is if I open the session up in Pro Tools and then copy save the
entire session into the Jaz drive?
wondering if FWB would help if I reformated the discs.
