Craig Anderton is an institution in the studio music world as an author, blogger, performer, designer and all-around nice guy.
Today I wanted to share a simple insight from Craig that I saw over on a forum he moderates over at Harmony Central, “Craig Anderton’s Sound, Studio and Stage.”
“The cheapest, quickest, and most effective way to improve the sound of your studio is to write a better chorus.” -Craig Anderton
What a marvelous way of saying that in the end — after you’ve updated your software and mortgaged the house to get the latest tube preamp and that pristine 1957 Strat — what counts most is whether you have a good song in the first place.
So thanks, Craig, from one more composer-performer-engineer guy who needed to hear that it’s about the music, and the performance, much more than it is about the tools.
