My death metal band Terminal Sequence are preparing to do an EP. I want to record the guitar/bass/vocals myself then either rent a multi imput interface or take that to a studio to record drums. Then send it off to get mastered. - What im wondering is what kind of state it should be in when sending it for mastering. - Should i be EQing each track to make it sound the best i can? - should i be the one to add reverb to the tracks? - or do i send the raw recorded tracks? - do i render it so its just one lossless wav or send every single track separately? If you cant tell im new to this. Ive gotten decent results with the bit of recording ive done so far. So i figured recording it ourselves would be a viable way to go for our 1st 4 song EP. Thanks for any info. Very much appreciated.
