So in this chapter I want to talk a little bit about getting ready or setting up for recording. Recording is a pretty interesting process, and the more you do it, the more you'll get excited about it. It's a lot of fun if you're working on music or doing voice-overs. It's exciting to make things, but at the same time it can be kind of stressful, too, because once the tape's rolling, once the microphone's on, we are always trying to kind of get it right, to nail our performance, to deliver our line correctly. And there is nothing worse than when you're trying to get it right and deliver your performance and then the stuff like equipment issues and detours or things like that come up. They can be really distracting.
It's inevitable that things will happen. But there is a few steps you can take before you start to record that at least eliminate few of these road bumps and a few things that might come up. So a little bit of planning and preparation can go a long way in terms of setting up for recording. So in the next few movies, we'll talk about just a few different things you can do.
