Recording Tips - Studio Etiquette

My Dad was always replete with colloquialisms:

  • "Always put your mind in gear before you put your mouth in motion."
  • "It's not what you say as much as how you say it."
  • "If you say nothing, people will think you don't know anything; but as soon as you open your mouth, they will know it!"

The point is that there is a time and a place for bringing up most any topic. Try to be sensitive to that!

As engineers, we need to recognize the difference in the job descriptions between us and producers. Try not to have too many opinions that are at odds with the producer. Things will go more smoothly.
