You know what’s annoying?
Doing the same thing over…and over…and over…and over again.
For the longest time, I’ve been a “clean slate” kinda guy when it comes to working in my studio. I like to fire up my recording software with NO tracks, then build my session from there.
But…it’s getting kinda old.
In the last month I can’t tell you how many times I’ve created the EXACT set of tracks for recording, grouping, and bussing electric guitars.
But is there really a solution?
Templates allow you to pre-load a set number of tracks, each with its routing and even plugin choices already pre-set for you…right out of the gate.
Here’s the problem most people run into with templates. They make them TOO complicated. They think up every foreseeable situation and try to create a template that covers it.
Here’s my advice: Don’t.
Keep it simple. Include the basics that you tend to use over and over and over again. Don’t make your template so involved that you end up spending more time deleting things per session than it would’ve taken you to build the session from scratch.
(The goal here is to SAVE you time, remember?)
I’ll be setting up a template for myself this week, and I’m shooting a video to show you exactly how (and why) I do it.
It’s for VIP members only, and it goes live this Friday.
Oh, and by the way…if you’re a VIP member, you get 30% off of almost all my other products. Just sayin’.
