We had a friend who worked in a studio and if there was time free he’d call us in to record demos. We supplied the tape, he practiced his engineering and we got the time. And you’re right, you had to have your shiit together before you showed up. That meant knowing your part, making sure your gear was working and ready (oh damn I broke a string and don’t have another) a d you were ready to work even if that meant sitting in the control room waiting.yeah when I was young going in the studio to do a demo of any kind was a really big deal. And you rehearsed your asses off in the weeks leading up to it so you could (hopefully) go in and bang it out really quick and really well. Less time in the studio meant less money spent.
...then we'd get in and spend an hour+ while the drummer got his drums tuned and got a good sound.
I have fun with my DAW but it certainly isn’t the same.
