Recording Problems

Posted: October 26, 2011 in Master Plan

The Korg Desk is not great for studio craft after all, and is almost impossible to export audio tracks to my laptop so I already decided to scrap that! We managed to get a MOTU Sound Card That Records at 192 kHz, we obtained it from my girlfriends mothers church recording studio!!!! The recording crusade grows with my holy soundcard of Antioch!



All set!!

So im all set and ready to fly out to the States on the 14th of october for my american expedition! I Will keep my project up-to-date on a day-by-day basis, giving a visual and audio insights to process of my project.

The aim of this project is to record a single for the American band from Portland, Oregon, ‘Sitting Sideways’. The track will be recorded to the best of my abilities, ensuring maximum qaulity of the final product. The single will be used as a promotional tool for their future album on which I will be the producer for, starting in the summer of 2012. The song will also be a promotional tool for live events in which to self promote the band. When I travel to the states, I will have a maximum of 3 weeks to record and engineer the song from the 15th of October. Once I come back, I will set myself a deadline for the 1st of December to have the track ‘mixed and mastered’ and the final product complete to a professional standard.
