Whatever studio you are considering, you should take the time to visit the studio, walk into the space that you’ll be making your music and get a sense for how it’s going to feel to create in that space.

Ask to hear some samples of music recorded at the studio. What you hear should please you. If it doesn’t, ask yourself if that’s going to translate into your recording.

Get a sense for what it will be like working with the engineer. You want an engineer who will encourage your best work. If you sense an attitude that will challenge your creative process then you probably want to keep looking. You want to feel a partnership in the creation of your music. Capturing your best recording should be just as much a priority for the engineer as it is for you.

Make sure you’ll be hearing a mix in your headphones means it’s easier for you to play your part, too. At Tanglewood we provide each player with his or her own personal mixing station so you can customize it to your preferences. Less drums, more bass, more vocal… you decide what will allow you to play your best.

There are many technical considerations in a studio. You want to make sure that the technology is not going to stand between you and your music. Nothing is worse than being inspired to play your best track and then having to wait while the engineer figures out what is going wrong in the control room.
