Whenever I have recorded music it has usually been in a studio or outside venue. I decided this week to try something new and to invite a few friends round and have a bit of a jam that I would then record on my laptop using an Mbox and Pro-Tools. My lounge ended up being a really great venue to record, it’s full of soft furnishings which really helped to deaden any noise.
The evening was really informal and I like to think that the musicians that came down felt really relaxed with the whole recording process. I let the artists listen to their tracks back again, and meddled a bit until they were happy with their sound. We were only recording for a few hours and after a few takes we now have two songs which I’m quite pleased with given our impromptu evening! Would definitely do it again in the future!
I’ll post up the track Bird soon!
