MAKING THE SOUND OF THE BAND
These days, it’s 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 rockin’ band.
And that’s 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. That’s right—twenty!
All this plus continued coverage of NAMM 2008, our monthly columns, Song Production in Pro Tools with Mark Hornsby, Readers’ Tapes with Marty Peters, and much more. Make your band sound like a band with the February Recording!
