Quote of the Day

ďMost of the time, itís not so much the equipment as how you use it. Iíve heard people with really cheap studios do great recordings, and Iíve heard people that have worked in very good facilities come out with awful sounding recordings. So itís how itís used, and the quality of the engineer.Ē- Frank Gambale

These days, itís rare that an entire band plays at once in the studio when recording music (at least in the pop, rock, and R&B/hip-hop genres). Members take turns tracking, or even send in parts from other cities; in smaller rigs and cramped personal recording studios, recording one member at a time may be a necessity! So how do you get these diversely sourced tracks to meld together and really sound like a band recorded them? Read the February Recording and find out, with lots of strategies and practical tips for miking, mixing, and polishing tracks to recreate the sound of a rockiní band.
And thatís not all: read a front-lines report on generating buzz with YouTube, take a look at the 2007 CMJ Music Festival, and pick up the buzz on 20 new products on review. Thatís rightótwenty!
All this plus continued coverage of NAMM 2008, our monthly columns, Song Production in Pro Tools with Mark Hornsby, Readersí Tapes with Marty Peters, and much more. Make your band sound like a band with the February Recording!
