Recording in Two Minute Chunks
Recording action passages and music that demands a lot from your players is best to be split into approx. two minute chunks and later edit them together again. With this procedure, the musicians can focus on certain passages and pull them off properly as the amount of music they need to play in two mins can be better focused on, before the take they can rehearse for themselves certain tricky passages.
If you just rush through a 5 min cue over and over again, there will hardly be any satisfying take as such a long time of music feels more or less like “sight reading” for the players every time. With smaller chunks, you’ll get a improvement as the players might remember what’s coming and therefore can better prepare for and focus on it.
