Comping Takes Together in Record
The prop guys delivers yet another high quality tutorial in music production

Musicians had to record their songs in one take direct to wax/acetate records. 100 copies of an album meant recording 100 flawless takes for every musician playing together! Compare that to today and Record 1.5’s “Comp Editor.” You can cycle through recording, doing take after take after take, choosing the best parts of each, and stitching them together into one flawless performance. This week I’ll show you how.
