Course 5: Studio Recording

The day has arrived but before you go into the recording studio to record those master vocals and choruses, you’re going to prepare like the professionals do. You will bring your spreadsheet (recording inventory checklist), your properly packaged stems, and you will be ready to work i.e., mentally, vocally, and physically prepared for a productive day of recording in the studio with your mentor. At this juncture, you will position yourself more as producer than artist, thereby putting yourself on the right foot to potentially be a part of the team at the studio. Once the stress and excitement are over, you’ll immerse yourself in the sonic landscape of U2’s alt-rock masterpiece, The Joshua Tree, and take a much-deserved digital field trip to Splice.
