Great idea! I would be interested in this as well. I would like to make it as ‘real world’ for most Academy members though. Recording & mixing on a shoestring budget.
1. So no seasoned session musicians who get it right on the first or second take. How do you guide hobbyists and local bands who get anxious when the red recording light goes on?
2. No studios or nicely filled lunchboxes. How do record on a laptop, a portable audio-interface and an inexpensive microphone?
3. Make a “Fiverr” supergroup! Can you get the overdub tracks you need for $5 each? How do you treat those tracks in the mix and get them gel with your own recordings?
Just some ideas here.
