Here is the second (of four) segments from my interview with Danny Crawford last week. In this one, he discusses how a song goes from an initial rough idea to a professional-level recording and the process used to generate an entire project worth of tracks in one day.
Keep in mind that in the studio, normally, tracks are recorded separately before the main artist records. For example, when I record orchestration, I play along on the piano but it is “scratch” which means it is only for reference of the overall style and feel. Later, that piano is thrown away and replaced with a more polished performance. Almost all vocalists do the same thing. So when he discusses doing a project in one day, he is just talking about the tracks.
