Ive been in the music business, as a musician, songwriter,producer since the early 1960's and there is no substitute for experience, you never stop learning in this business. The best advice I give to anyone is use your imagination and 'keep it f...... SIMPLE!. People have had hit records just with piano and vocals, guitar and vocals.
zlIrXF Awesome blog post.Thanks Again. Cool.
Idk that any particular set of monitors or any quality of monitors for that matter affect the amount of listening you can do! TBH my ears can become fatigued after listening to anything for a long period of time on any set of speakers
Who writes this? have they ever worked in a real studio with real bands and artists? Do they even play an instrument, do any real recording? write any real songs? Yeah dont be tired that makes sense. Be practiced for the sssion, but also dont let the inspiration and vibe of the moment get lost in repetitive rehearsal, playing the right notes is one thing, ripping out a blinding take is another!!!! Eat what makes you feel right for the occasion, you know your self what they are, drink what suits your vocal chords. Yes make sure you have a spare everything! If your ears are tired you have probably been listening to crap speakers or headphones, decent monitoring should allow you to listen all day, your brain might get tired but that's normally the affliction of your long suffering engineer!If you have a song in your head, try to get it out your monitors as close to the version in your head,if you find you want the NY philharmonic backing it and you can get them, do it! if you don't like the result you can always fade them down or out later.
One unquestionable fact, save often, and yes, listen to your last to finalised product through as many different mediums as you can, and dont expect any usable feedback from any body else, trust your own instincts!
No matter what I do I can't seem to get a decent sound from my vocals from my home set up ?just lacks that warmth you get on a studio.
Hi, im starting at maknig? music (electronic like drum and bass, techno, ambient). I want a good pair of speakers but I dont know if I will make a good choise buying a audio interface to work as a soundcard (For windows 7 64bit) and connect with a pair of monitors. Thanks in advance.
