I did some session work at a University Level Music studio a few weeks ago. It was... AWESOME. All the equipment was top notch. All analog recording too, no pro tools nonsense!
We did a live recording of a progressive rock song with a lot of ralls and accelerandos. We rocked SO hard that the Professor actually came in to observe what we were doing.
I was really upset after what I "thought" was the first take, because I messed up on ONE measure which threw the entire song off. Luckily, they were just getting the levels right, so we actually nailed it in one take.
When we were done, since we had a lot of time to spare, we just jammed in the studio (which has awesome acoustics). Really really fun time! I'm on the roster for recording more projects there in the future now.
