For many musicians, recording in a professional studio can be an overwhelming experience at first. There is a lot going on, it’s all very technical and mostly incomprehensible. Jargon is thrown around. Things often move fast.
For a while, I have been thinking about doing an episode that explains, in the simple terms, the recording process for musicians.
To help me, I asked singer-songwriter Corrie Lynn Green to join me in a conversation. Corrie is relatively new to recording, and I thought her questions would be a useful way to cover these topics.
Some musicians are very technically adept, probably because they have learned to do their own recording at home. But some may have misconceptions, or otherwise might benefit from a better understanding of the technology.
Others don’t really want to know. They want to focus all their energy on their music and performance in the studio, and leave all the dull, technical stuff to others.
But I suspect that most musicians would like to know more about what is going on around them. This episode is for them, although I suspect that even seasoned studio players might find some useful tidbits.
For most people, the more you understand, the better you can use the technology of the studio. That makes better recorded music.
