Subject: RE: Help: Do you use a click track in the Studio?
Boy, Chance, you've gotten some great advice here. I've never been comfortable with click tracks but that just me. It's an inner ear thing or something, but when I'm following a click track I feel like I do when I tried to dance....and that ain't good! I've come up with a substitute which is to program the chord changes into my Yamaha Keyboard. It does the same thing as a click but seems to "breathe" a bit. It doesn't really 'cause time is time.....but it 'feels' better to me.

One bit of advice I might throw your way is don't do a final mix until you've lived with it for a few days. Things that seem horrible while you're in the recording process are much less noticeable after a bit of a break...and if you start trying to fix every little dynamic (I don't mean actual mistakes) you'll never stop!

Good luck
