The vibe we discussed in pre-production informs how we go about the recording process. How is the song served best? Do we capture the drums with 8 mics or take a more holistic approach?
I like to get as close to the sound we’re looking for on input as opposed to recording everything clean and then having to create the entire vibe in the mix. But more importantly, my job as a Producer is to help you deliver your very best performance. Musicians need to feel comfortable. That means a fun, creative environment and a headphone mix that helps you really feel the music.
Capturing great performances is what it’s all about.
