Unit 8 – Week 4

This week we were going to record the piano in the studio but the pianist insisted on recording in the midi room. I was quite sceptical about this as we had had some major issues about timing problems previously. To my surprise the piano got recorded in time and sounded really good! When my peer had finished i decided to record my guitar sections through the sound card in the midi room. Although i had recorded the guitar through an amp the previous week, the sound that was coming through sounded like a bass which wasn’t the sound i wanted. Whilst recording through the sound card i managed to get a much clearer sound and i also got it done a lot quicker. In comparison to the recording through the amp, the recording through the sound card sounded a lot better for this song.
Next session we rehearsed the song again and we also had someone playing on drums this time. Whilst rehearsing, it did take a while for everyone to manage to play together without any major faults. Out of the three or four time we went through it, it was placed well once.
The last session of the week two of my peers recorded lead guitar and also bass. After two takes both were recorded  . After this I went to the midi room to start mixing.
