I've been making music for about 6 years, but they were always just instrumentals.
In the last 2 years I've started to make full songs, writing lyrics and finding singers.
When it came down to recording the voice I found a studio to use, but I realised....I don't have a clue what to do in there!
The few times i've been in the studio with singers, there's always been an engineer there who already has the equipment set up and takes control of the recording.
My question is... is there anything I can be doing/watching/reading to help prepare me for more time in the studio?
I mean my goal is to make money from this and to go on to produce in studios, possibly my own home studio but I can't find anything on the internet (weirdly) which explains the studio set up from scratch.
There must be others in the same position, any advice?
I felt pretty stupid saying to the engineers that I didn't know what to do in the studio...!
