Engineers tend to make a lot of mistakes.
Especially when they’re starting out and trying to improve their recordings. Without the proper knowledge of all the audio equipment you’re bound to end up making some recording mistakes here and there. It’s no big deal when you’re a beginner. That’s how everybody learns. By making mistakes.
I know I have, again and again.
In fact, I even thought I was doing the right thing sometimes…only to learn later that I was just making everything sound worse.
Here are a few of the bigger mistakes.
Don’t do these.
Make sure you don’t get laughed out of the room.
- Thinking it’s fine to record at 16 bit.
- Placing your monitors on your desk without thought.
- Recording in a corner.
- Using standard mic techniques blindly.
- Using stereo techniques in a small room.
Of course, there are MANY more.
