Punch In/Out Process
Its purpose is to improve or correct a section of the track without having to re-record the entire track. Steps: 1.) establish pre-roll spot, 2.) establish punch in/out spot, 3.) push record ready button, 4.) push insert button (allowing one to hear the live recording), 5.) hit play to punch out, 6.) listen to track.
Steps: 1.) choose/write song and consider the arrangement, 2.) decide order of recordings ("game plan"), 3.) establish a click track, 4.) create signal flow (mic -> pre-amp -> compressor -> tape deck), 5.) record tracks.
Its purpose is to achieve a desirable balance of individual musical elements among a larger body of tracks. The elements used in the process: Reverb (many different slight delays in the sound vibrations), Relative Volume (volume balance from one instrument to another), EQ (boosting/decreasing of volume on selected frequencies), Panning (placing a track in the L/R spectrum).
