Pt. 3 Tracking and Comping
When tracking, it is extremely important to organize all of the different takes. I highly recommend keeping notes or labeling takes inside Pro Tools during the recording process. This way if you take a break or decide to work on the session the next day, you will know which take to listen too. When recording vocals I like to pay close attention to every take. I’ll remember or take note of which takes I like the best, and then comp the vocals immediately after recording, so the takes are fresh in my mind. Find what works best for you and then stick to it because there is nothing worse than reopening your session and not remembering anything about it.
