aa2 - week 01 - session planning

BLACK SABBATH - original line up, going for 70's style.

4 piece band - guitar, bass guitar, drums, vocals. from past recordings their is also potential for other instruments such as harmonica.

I imagine going for a live performance/recording. So using baffles/or separate recording rooms for the acoustic isolation of instruments (guitar/bass/drums) and separate room for vocals.

Running separate headphone mixes for each performer with their preferred levels of each mic/instrument will maintain their connection as a band, with eye contact also important between members.

Overdubs will also be happening so they'll be recorded after, either for replacing takes or adding extra layers for dimension.
