The Recording Process Explained
Tracking is the process of recording the various instruments that are used to perform a song. Usually, a song is recorded one track at a time. Every time you record a new track, you hear all the other ones you’ve recorded as well. This is the process of multi-track recording.
This stage focus is to move around parts that aren’t in time, adjust pitches that aren’t quite there, or polish tracks by fading the beginnings and ends of each part so it comes in and out smoothly. The goal of this stage is to get the performance sounding as good as possible, nothing more.
Mixing is the process of combining all the instruments you’ve recorded into a stereo 2-track mix. A good mix will let you hear all the instruments clearly and with detail. It will have depth and motion. It will sound good and support the intention of the music. Important to note that the beginning to a good mix is a good tracking technique and a good performance by the artist.
mastering is the process where we correct any minor deficiencies that was missed during the mixing process. This is also when we raise the level of all the tracks so they’re “hot” (loud) and even in volume. By putting each song through the same mastering gear and adjusting to the same level, it makes them sound more like they are coming from the same album.
