Don’t Waste Your Time In The Studio

1. Always be on time; if you were waiting on someone and they were running late how  do you think your engineer feels. Show the engineer some respect and call the studio to let the engineer or staff know that you are running late.

2. Have all material ready. Once you hit the door your session begins. Don’t waste time shopping around for beats when you can be recording.
