I remember a friend who was a producer in the '60's telling me that a lot of jazz records that sound like they had to be recorded in the middle of the night were actually cut in the morning or afternoon, since the musicians had evening gigs.
Black Flag's Nervous Breakdown probably a lot of other punk albums as well, out of budget considerations. CassielAug 27, Location: Takoma Park, MD. WaltAug 27, Location: Charleston, WV. Another Side of Bob Dylan was supposedly recorded in a single session. SpadeygroveAug 27, Maybe I'm manufacturing this tale, or maybe I've bought into a legend, but IIRC Bad Brains were one of those bands who had honed their skills together in months of nightly performances, so they were able to take their club set into the studio and run through their songs nonstop.
Sounds too good to be true but this is an amazingly tight band raging through punk and then spinning the listeners heads around by dropping Increment - Ø [Phase] - Alone In Time? (File medium tempo reggae across but one simple slap of a drumstick. I guess I don't really want to know if this is not true. The transitions are so flawless it sounds like they had to cut at least 2 tracks at a time, or maybe a whole LP side.
Tom in HoustonAug 27, He sang bass, baritone and tenor on Home Sweet Home, Green Mountain Hop is an instrumental and played banjo, guitar, fiddle, drums and stand-up bass. He was also the recording engineer. There was no one else at the station but a DJ.
You put markers at the end of each song either as you record or after. After would be easier. When you are recording sessions in a studio, you should either book the full time it will take to record the album and black it out or if it's in your own studio, black the time out for yourself.
Leave mics as they are. Leave the board as it is and don't move anything until you've finished tracking. You will still get variances due to performance but nothing unmanageable. When you mix, as JG49 pointed out, copy track settings or create a template. Or, if you are using Album) mixing board, just leave all the auxiliaries and faders as is. Don't move anything and document everything. That will give you a starting point.
Other than that, it's up to you and your ears. Joined: Mar 20, Location: currently Billings. The pros send the whole thing to a Mastering Engineer whose job is to bring everything to a comparable level and polish everything up.
This is not to say that every song is or should be the same. They shouldn't. Quality Mastering Engineers are getting harder to find through the white noise that is lots of people claiming to be mastering engineers. TheJackAttackFeb 21, At that point, I save it as a different project. In a live recording there's no way around a single project initially. However - once the set is recorded, I find cut points, and make each song its own project.
Much easier on the processing. Also, despite it being a live set, I don't believe in using the same treatments for each song - similar treatments yes, but exact, no see below. When working on the first song of a project, I will make presets of the EQs and effects I use on each source - chances are, that same source might need a similar treatment in another song.
These presets then give me a good starting point. That said, I don't believe you should use blanket settings, and the best starting point is almost always no EQ or effects whatsoever. Much better to hear each source as it is in the mix - independent of any prejudices - and react accordingly.
Using a template can make things easier. I always have a different project for each song. That's right, 24 audio files named GuiAmp I tend to be a little disorganized, so I try and make sure I can find whatever I need, whenever I need it.
Honestly, I was just trying to appease the OP. I personally think you should try and treat each song as it's own project. Unless of course it is a live situation.
Having everything set up and just leaving the mics as is, is a nice luxury. I get the impression the OP is talking about post production and not the initial recording. I guess I read it wrong. Really, I think both are interconnected, in this instance. It bit me in the arse. And it is much easier to block out time and leave mics as is. In my imperfect world, this is rarely possible.
Scheduling issues sometimes mean 3 bands a week in 3 days doing 3 different things. I do make note of settings and placements, as well as take pictures. Even still, I hesitate to try and do, say, punch-ins on different sessions. It's just too hard to get things exactly the same. Another topic for another day? And I meant for my comments about settings to be more directed at post-production, in case I wasn't clear. I try and push my clients to getting a professional master, as much as they may make me want to pull my hair out in the process.
But for something that is intended for public release?! Another topic for another day, too Finally, to Christos: Sorry we I took your thread on some tangents.
