My people, my people. Exactly how long should you spend editing a song?
Let’s take in consideration that everything was recorded right, and there was very little retakes. Let’s also say that treatment was applied during recording, leaving touch ups in editing. I would say that about 6-8 hours on the song would be sufficient. Argue with me if you will, but with these things completed, another 3 hours in mastering should do it, don’t you agree?
Really, what I have done was, on the cool, give you a method that will save you time in the studio, if not per song then, per EP. With time, you to will develop a method in recording, that will save you time in pre and post. But, that’s just one of my methods, what’s yours?
