In the studio: recording metal with Pro Tools

I’ve been recording a political heavy metal album that’s still kinda secret, with a few friends.

This project will involve a LOT of editing on my part, as we are editing our music around clips (which clips exactly, will remain a secret for right now). It’s a bit odd for me, because I’m somewhat of an old school perfectionist: I’d rather do a bunch of takes, and use the perfect take. It’s fun and I look forward to more editing in Pro Tools.

Punching in, cross fades for smooth wave forms and edits, are part of my daily life right now. LOL!!

I’ve played the metal tracks for a few friends of mine, and of course for my bandmates. A lot of people are very excited about the record. The first song has a lot of twin guitar harmonies, very Iron Maiden-esque.

I’m stoked, yo.
