What you hear is what you get.
When listening to the tracks, please keep the following in mind:
- No click track.
- One take.
- Home studio.
No click track.
Most of the time when you are playing with other musicians there is no click track. Therefore he is training to play without. And when there is a click track, the job will be easier. Also it helps focusing more on the music.
The ultimate goal is to find a band. Performing on stage, there is no place to make mistakes. Editing, quantizing, quick punch are great tools, but don’t give an actual picture. Those tools come in handy when you are working on an album.
By all means, Peter is not an audio or mix engineer. This is a work in progress. He tries to get a good sounding track with the tools and knowledge he has. Keep learning and practicing is the key.
