Recording studio Miami: How should I prepare for studio time?


What should I do before I go to the studio? What would you suggest?


The majority of the work on your project is going to be done before you go to the recording studio to do the final recordings. What you should do is make sure that you have all your Ts crossed and your Is dotted, starting with the song. Make sure that you have all of your lyrics written, and rehearsed, and practiced, and you know exactly what you’re going to sing and how you’re going to sing it. Make sure that all of the instrumentation is planned, and that the band has rehearsed those parts and knows exactly what they need to play so you can get it down on the first take. Then, have some embellishments on the second take and see if some magic happens.


Make sure that the band rehearses together. If you’re going to record all these things together, make sure that you have rehearsals together with a click coming through the PA. Record these rehearsals, and you provide feedback, and you make things perfect from when you get to the studio. You should also be recording your own tracks at home in Ableton, or in Pro Tools, or whatever program that you can get your hands on just to number one, get the arrangements set, and also to get yourself more comfortable with recording and with engineering, which will give you more knowledge when you get to the studio. You can be more involved and make sure things are happening the way that you would like them to happen for your song.
