“On my next session, I was in for some fun. My mentor had a band coming in to track some drums for their album. He already had the mikes setup to how he wanted them, so we got all the cabling out and plugged them in. We turned on the mixer and set pre-gain levels below clipping. Then he adjusted the sliders to his liking. The band showed up and I shadowed my mentor and watched everything he did. The drummer had a great attitude and wanted the best fitting drums/percussion for each song. We tracked 5 different songs. It took about a little over 4 hours. It was a lot of fun and I observed how my mentor talked to the client and how the flow of the session went.”
Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
