We all know that feeling of excitement when you have finished writing that new track/ep/album and are ready to enter the studio. That feeling can sometimes distract even the best of us from preparing ourselves and getting the most out of our studio time.
The info below will provide you with a list of things to check before entering the studio to record your next project.
