When I interview people, I usually try to ask them for the one, single piece of advice they’d give up-and-coming home studio recordists.
What’s ONE THING we home studio guys and gals can do to get better?
I think we tend to get so bogged down with recording techniques and mixing skills that we sometimes miss “the vision” for the song.
Subscriber Max asks, “Are there any tips for developing the vision for a song?”
While it’s a seemingly simple question, it really gets to the heart of everything we do in the studio. Think about it. Who cares if the acoustic guitar you just recorded sounds amazing if it just plain doesn’t fit the song?
Or who cares if the bass tone is great if the actual part being played by the bass is completely wrong for the song?
