Wow,

I bet the drummer will never be able to play your "From This Tower" sequenced drums.

And I bet the singer's throat will literally crawl out from his throat and die.

This is too funny.

1.   CLICK TRACK
First things first, you need to record to a click track! If you do not record to a click then you are setting your self up for disaster down the road if not immediately. I usually start by having the guitar player play the song and use tap tempo to figure out the tempo of the song, input that in to your tempo track and have the band follow along with it to make sure it feels right to everyone, including the producer if he’s there.


I always consider it optional to invite the producer to a project's initial tracking session. Why distract him/her from really important work, like working on some other client's project?

Hahaa--it can happen! That reminds me of a story in the Lemmy "White Line Fever" book where he said that Jimmy Miller was really coked up and kept falling asleep at the console, and then would occasionally wake up and start pushing around faders and make it look like he was doing something.

Sorry for all the "Joshing" but as you can see, it will just be pages and pages of this negative response which will rise to the top of the Google heap and cause bad PR for you. They're like seagulls in a Hitchcock movie here.

*or*

You could ask the Moderator to dump this thread, say "sorry, all" and in a few months, Google cache will probably clear this off their drives and people won't think you are less than capable and avoid you when they see it.

Then, please join our lively group without spamming us and converse. Very Happy
All will be forgotten.

Up to you.

I wonder how much being a staff Village Idiot over at Expert Village pays?

Here's a quote from his myspace page

Quote:

Drums to Vocals

Recording guitars and vocals to off time drums is like building a house on a foundation that's about to fall.

In order to have a strong recording you must have a solid foundation, DRUMS! I am talking 100% perfectly in time, yes you can have tempo changes, but your drums should be played in time with the current tempo! Drums are a real reflection of the complete recording. With out the right drum tones you won't get good guitar tones, bass, vocals sitting well in the mix and all sorts of other problems! Joshua Recording Studios specializes in the drums department because we understand just how much this can affect your mix! Leave it to us if you are less than average drummer with a less than average drum kit with less than average heads with less than average cymbals, I think I have made our point! We will make your drums sound amazing!

-Joshua


The tracks on myspace are certainly  LOUD.

Well, did anyone contact these guys for some PRO recording? You know what they say about the pros--they may have taught us everything WE know, but they haven't taught us everything that THEY know....
