Session recordings range from simple two-microphone (stereo) recordings through to more complex multi-microphone approaches (as per
advanced concert recordings). Multi-track recordings will typically be mixed later in a controlled listening environment. Editing
and mastering will then be performed and a pre-master CD-R produced.
Recording sessions cater for private recordings in your chosen venue or studio setting.
difference between Concert and Session approaches is that for a live concert recording there is usually only one opportunity to capture
the performance, whereas in a session you have the luxury of recording multiple “takes” and combining the best of these to produce
the final recording.
Depending on the scale, a session recording is typically of similar technical complexity to an advanced
recording. There is equipment set-up and tear-down time required for each session, followed by sound checks, positioning of
microphones etc (during rehearsal) to get the best balance of sound.
