- Book an entire day at the studio:
By recording an entire day, time is not wasted with multiple setups and take downs. This also helps keep the flow of the project without having to backtrack.
- Record one song at a time:
Instead of recording one instrument on multiple songs, record all the parts for one song, then move on to the next. This keeps the unity of the song alive and is especially important for vocalists who need to rest their voices.
- Prepare and know your songs:
Choose your 3 best songs and have them perfected, so when you arrive at the studio, you are not paying to practice. When everyone is prepared, it makes the most efficient use of studio time.
Follow these steps and you will have your music out and ready for people to hear in no time.....or at least in a day.
