HEY YOU! GET ON MY CLOUD! — Recording Your Band Online
Despite the lockdown, loss of live and studio opportunities, and general uncertainty of the past months, one thing is certain—just as a painter paints, a musician makes music.
Many musicians have taken to the cloud, offering up solo quarantine concerts, talk shows, and home broadcasts. One of the more exciting developments has been the multi-window virtual performance videos. Some are professionally done, others are homemade, and many are a combination of the two. Some homebound musicians have professional mics, interfaces and apps at their disposal, and others have a smartphone, tablet, or the built-in tools on their computers. To get some pointers on crafting similar productions, we reached out to three musicians/editors/engineers for their advice.
