Preparing For Your Recording Studio Session
Equipped with world-class microphones, preamps, outboard gear, and software, Douglass Recording offers clients an exceptional opportunity to make competitive recordings. To take full advantage of studio time, we recommend clients provide us with details about setup and goals before they come in for their session. We also suggest that clients practice, and arm themselves with knowledge about the recording process (see below for a start) to prepare for a session and maximize their time and budget in the studio.
It’s essential to show up prepared. Practice ad nauseam on your own, with your band, and even with a metronome! The less prepared you are, the more time you’ll need to spend on takes and editing. Even mixing can be hindered by poor performance. The more prepared you are, the better your recording will sound, and you’ll lose less time, and ultimately money, to your recording session. This can really add up, and if you’re prepared, you can instead spend more of your budget on merch, touring, and promotion.
