Things You Need To Do To Record Good Audio (Apart From Using Monitoring Speakers)
Picture this: You have a good audio recording session, good sound, good voice and everything works together smoothly and perfectly. You then sit down after the recording process to listen to what you have done creatively. Alas! The sound is wacky and tacky.
You know your speakers are the best. So you wonder what could have happened. Nevertheless, the speakers aren’t the only equipments you need for the recording process. If you have the best studio monitoring speakers but your audio still sounds spooky then it’s possible that there are a few things you aren’t getting right.
There are some other equipments besides your monitoring speakers used for the recording process that can make your audio output sound awkward. There are some other things you should know. Here are some things you can do to get the audio you ultimately desire.
Don’t record while your guitar is on reverb
If you aren’t certain, you should try to record dry particularly if you have your reservations about how it will work with the arrangement.
If the guitarist can’t manage without the reverb, simply select what he/she needs from your software and add it to his headphones.
Record your audio with good-sounding equipments
Old strings can’t give you the sound you desire. If an instrument or any of its parts need to be replaced, ensure that you fix it before the recording sessions begin. If you replace any part of your equipment, ensure you tune it properly.
