Does your recording studio have a sound room with multi-sided, non-parallel walls?

Regardless of whether the recording studio--in Toronto or in any other city in the world--you are using has a sound recording room with non-parallel walls or not, there are certain things that musicians have to know before recording in the studio. If musicians are not fully familiar with what to expect before stepping into the recording studio, then they may make mistakes, which can thus lead to poorer sound quality than is necessary. So without any further ado, let us now look at some of the tips that a musician must know about before going ahead into the recording studio.

One problem you may also come across while in the recording studio, is related to the title. This problem is something called a "flutter echo". It starts with 2 parallel, reflective surfaces facing each other in a room. If most other surfaces are absorbent, a sound wavefront can get trapped, so to speak, into traveling back and forth between said 2 surfaces until it deteriorates. If this happens it will translate into a ringing or a buzzing during your transients. Which are the beginnings and ends of sounds that are impulsive--hand claps, for example. If you are working in a good recording studio (including not having any walls parallel to another), this shouldn't be an issue.

Besides that, showing up rested is always a wise suggestion, especially because recording time in the studio can sometimes last for a good, long while. When one shows up rested, not only will the recording experience be that much more pleasant, but it can also yield better results for the musician. Some musicians might be tempted to get drunk or high because their rock star idols have done so, but most musicians are going into the recording studio on their very own dime! Hence, it pays not to waste time and show up fully coherent to a recording session.

Being prompt is another of the common sense principles that any musician should really respect before going into the recording studio. Again, for many musicians, paying out of their own pocket for recording time is usually what they have to do, which is precisely why it is so material for the musician to be prompt to his or her own studio session! If said musician fails to show up on time for his own sessions, then that is like throwing money right out of the window! It does not make sense so does not do it.

This can even extend to bringing an extra guitar, bringing extra guitar picks and even bringing extra guitar strings. In the case of drummers, they should remember to bring with them an extra pair of drum sticks and even an extra set of drum heads. It is better to be safe than sorry, clearly.

Finally, the last thing that a musician going into the studio must know beforehand is to know the material. This means that the musician should really know the music that he or she wants to play within the walls of the studio in Toronto. Ideally, a musician ought to practice his or her material until he or she can play it quite perfectly. Until that point in time is reached, the musician should not even think of spending money to enter the studio.

There you have it! Going into the recording studio is something that you have to plan for before doing. You cannot just enter into said studio without knowing your material, or else you are going to waste your time to the point that you might as well not spend your money.
