Free Mentor Interview And Recording Studio Tour (Student Chris Bell)
My mentor and I actually clicked right away. I sat there for probably over two and a half hours, and we talked about music. Not just types of music I liked and he liked, which are actually very similar, but what we like to hear out of music, the intention of the artist, what kind of sounds we go after, how to determine what sound an artist should have.
If they’re an acoustic act, they shouldn’t want to sound like a very highly polished Def Leppard record, things like that. But we did go over probably pretty much everything from dynamics to recording technique, to different microphones. Anything you could talk about, about a recording session, we went over, over probably about a two and a half hour period.
