It is awful. I got an engineer to do it for me. Now he’s definitely a co-producer and pretty much my studio band.
If I were to start over and do a CD all by myself, I would do the following.
1) Set up the studio for one touch and/or remote operation.
2) Plan the song carefully. Know what you want on it and set up the software for each track ahead of time.
3) When you’re ready to start putting music in the machine, get someone else to push the buttons (record, rewind, playback, etc.)
The idea is to set things up so you can change your ‘hats’ instead of trying to wear two at a time. But knowing you, Matt, you’ve already thought of this.
