Recording Take Protocol

When recording music with live players, make a protocol of takes in some sort of form. I prefer marking the score sheets with differently colored markers where I circle or highlight things that were particularly problematic or good in individual takes. Other composers make notes on a sheet of paper. The benefit of such a protocol is that you later on in the editing phase you can easier find parts of the cue that you can edit together for the perfect rendition of the cue.
