5 Tips To Bring Energy While Recording Your Music

5 Tips To Bring Energy While Recording Your MusicWhen it comes to making your band’s new album or tracking in the recording studio, you don’t want it to feel like it’s a job that will stress you out. You want your time in front of the mics to feel normal, energetic, stress-free, and a collaboration with the rest of the band.

Here are a 5 tips to keep the energy while you put your new music to track at the recording studio:

  1. Preparation – Practice, practice, practice. Prepare yourself for the recordings by making sure you are confident with your new tunes. If you play the guitar, make sure mechanically you are sound. That way everything is second nature once you are sitting down to record the tracks.
  2. Focus on the good moments – When recording don’t worry about the how it will be perceived in the future. Focus instead on how it feels at the “then and now”. Listen to the music and play it how you imagine it should be played. Use the emotions you feel and bring it to your instrument.
  3. Allow for mistakes – Don’t sweat the small stuff and remember nothing will be “perfect”. If you are too worried about playing perfectly then your performance might take a hit when you feel it isn’t. Keep the overthinking to a minimum and keep yourself in the moment.
  4. As a band, stay a team – Compliment each others performance. Critique but do it in a constructive way. That way trust is built, and no one person in the band feels left out from the recording process.
  5. Trust in your engineer – When you choose a professional recording studio like Wavemaker Studio, your music is in the great hands of veteran engineer John “Bobcat” Pollock at the recording console.

Whether it was writing the songs, training your voice or getting the band all in one place, you want to make sure you get into the right studio to make your audio magic.

When it comes to recording your music or voice overs in a professional recording studio, you will want to be sure you have made the right choice. Educate yourself with these tips for choosing a high quality recording studio that will put you on track for your recorded works.

The Studio

Ask yourself a few questions: Is the recording studio big enough for the band? Is it comfortable for our performing? Where is it located? What’s unique about the facility?

If the studio has all that you need both in the latest recording equipment and space, then you’re one step closer to making the audio you want.

The Producers & Engineers

Get to know the owner and the staff. Find out who will be engineering your audio and make sure it’s a good fit. Talk about your ideas, and vision to make sure all are on the same page. You don’t want to be involved with someone who isn’t looking at it from your perspective fully.

Recording Rates

Spending your money wisely will make your venture the most fruitful. Just because it seems like a lot of money doesn’t mean you get the best quality, and when it looks like a cheap rate doesn’t mean you get cheap results. See what kind of discount plans there are and if you can buy pre-paid to conserve what time you need.

Recording Equipment

The recording equipment is important for choosing the studio. Having high quality professional equipment and an engineer who can operate it correctly will yield the best results.

Tour The Facility

Finally take a look around the studio. This way you get face to face with any and all questions you might have from above, and can see firsthand what goes on in the recording studios process. You can also see who else has recorded there and see if it worked for them. Research, educate and go with the recording studio you feel will work best for you.
