Hi all. A band in which I play various things (guitar, saw, banjo, ukulele an' t'ing) are heading off to Jersey for 10 days to record a new album. I'll be engineering and producing the album, which is extremely exciting for me, and I thought it might be worth documenting the whole process- lots of groups are trying to do similar semi-pro projects, and I thought the catalogue of errors we're bound to make might make useful instructional reading for people interested in how to get a professional-sounding record from minimal budgets. I'm writing everything down on...
Posts so far have covered pre-production reading & research, and thoughts on the 'American' versus 'English' engineering & production methods.
You might be interested in reading if
a) you like the band Fireworks Night (www.myspace.com/fireworksnight)
b) you're interested in the whole 'trying to record on a budget' process.
c) you're looking for ideas to help your own recording.
If you're not into any of these things, I'll be honest- it may be pretty dull. If you do have a look, I'd be very interested to hear Dissers' responses to things I write, and if you've any suggestions as to what you'd like to hear about, do let me know.
Alternatively, you could just let an attention-seeking post drop off the front page. That would work, too.
