Thanks for making your podcast! I just looked up Home Recording in my stitcher app on iOS and yours was the first to come up. What a fresh breath of air to all these other dick and fart joke podcast I’ve been listening too late at work.
This podcast episode hit way to close to home! It’s was like a checklist that would have lots of red checks on it. Wasn’t sure to laugh or actually cry? Lets just say I like technology a lot and fall into that guy that is always looking for the next best thing to make my recordings sound great! And then blindsided with how busy life gets and of course things get pushed aside for a while but never pulled back out and finished up….
I could ramble on for hours about this topic but ill stop here! Typing on an iPhone isn’t all that great!
Looking forward to listening to all your other episodes.
Hey Jeff, I appreciate your thoughtful comments and I’m so glad to be able to encourage you a bit. Welcome to the community!
Getting a rough recording to a tempo is a big deal. It’s helpful so you can begin to build the drums around the rhythm. Then the rhythm can be practiced and rerecorded. That’s the way I start EVERY song. Another good idea is to do one of each, bass, guitar, keys, drums, etc. and then come back another day and mute one out. Then redo it and pick the better one! Then you know it’s at least better than it might’ve been. Then mix that bad boy! Thanks for the podcast.
Absolutely Sky, thanks for the input!
