As described in this thread I earlier posted on TGP, my band (just a small local band in Perth, Australia) is going to start recording our second EP soon, and I'd like to sort of document the process, from preproduction through to the launch gig. I am inexperienced but I want to learn, and I really want it to sound good. We're doing it ourselves, so your feedback would be greatly appreciated/needed. Thats also the aim of this thread; to create a bunch of advice and sound samples/reference material etc, for anyone interested in general. To begin with, a little information about the band and the EP: We are a four piece rock band: two guitars, drums, bass and vocals. We are currently planning the new EP to be four tracks. In this thread I want to cover the recording of two of those songs. Which are (in low quality youtube goodness): "Satellite" and "Steal Your Mind" Not the greatest quality, but you should be able to get the idea. Feedback on anything at all would be so very appreciated. Arrangement or playing, anything. Tell me what sucks and how you would fix it. We are going to start with the drum tracks. I'm (the guitarist) going to go in and record scratch tracks of guitar for the songs to a click, and then we'll record the drums to that. What do you think about that method? So the next instalment in this thread should have recording gear and setup information, as well as audio of the raw drum tracks. And will hopefully be less wordy. Cheers!
