MENTORING



With the proliferation of home studios over the last few years, I get a lot of queries about recording and production techniques, and even did a few seminars and suchlike at universities and colleges. But I’m not a fan of “recording schools”, most of which deserve to be in inverted commas.  A recent recording school grad was 2nd engineer on one of my sessions – and stood open mouthed as he watched me work. EVERTHING I did was the opposite of how he’d been taught at college, and he couldn’t understand why it sounded good!


There is not a rule book about how you’re “supposed” to record, but it is necessary to accumulate some knowledge and experience so you can make the right decisions. In light of all the myths and misconceptions there are out there, I decided to offer one-to-one mentoring and training services to aspiring engineers, producers, and artists who wish to develop their recording skills. It’s not difficult to find information on nuts and bolts recording, and if you’re reading this, you probably know all that already. The real questions to address are these:



How do I make things sound the way I imagine?


and


How do I make it sound like a record?
