Basic recording principles

Hi Dan ,

You seem to have a reflected a lot on the process of recording , do you have any "rules" or "strategies" you always follow?

(like , "I never use eq during tracking" or "no light beer!" )

There's a rule I like to follow. Keep preamp stations separate from the mixing console. Don't ask the mian console to do too much. It should only ever mix. That way I get to lay down a mix anytime I what. I keep my instruments mic'd up all the time. It's good not to waste the time of an artist. If someone sits at an instrument it's good to be able to record them right away.
