And when I say 'Process' I mean I record live into a Zoom H2n and that's the end of it! hihi

I have been thinking of making a short record to post onto Band camp and MAYBE make some physical CDs.

I'm thinking of recording at home and then bringing all of the WAVs to a studio to have them mastered etc.

I can edit a bit but am really a beginner. I have friends in various studios that would work on my stuff.

I'm wondering if there are particular things to watch out for when recording this way. I just make sure my recording isnt clipping and go. Would compressing and EQing the entire track suffice, or would it be better to go for a more traditional approach in the studio. I'd like this record to sound like it was recorded simply but be mastered etc. properly.

I think you should look for someone who would just master your tracks as you say.. But why not send them two samples initially to see if you are getting a decent recording they can work with. Dont add any compression to start, just eq so that all the parts have their space. Recording is a process as you say, so give it a shot.

I use a Zoom R8 and it’s surprisingly good. You don’t need to record that hot from my experience. I would do 24 bit if it has that option. Just some quick thoughts.

I guess it depends a fair amount on the type of music you are doing, but you may want to consider recording onto separate tracks different parts of your synth to make it easier to mix and master it.

As thevegasnerve was saying, it may be worthwhile getting somebody with mastering experience to listen to some of your recordings and get tips from them.
thevegasnerve
Yeah, if there is one thing that can stifle a potentially good mix it’s not being able remove the layers that have issues, or eq them properly.
I tend to record live and don’t necessarily separate all my tracks out since I only have 8 tracks, sometimes that’s a problem.. But the benefits outweigh the negatives with not using a DAW for me.
