Recording the rhythm track is where the ability to record 3 or 4 tracks at once is a HUGE benefit. The ability to record the drums in stereo by using two channels, recording the bass into a third channel, and the rhythm guitar playing a “dummy track” into a fourth makes the recording sound tight and clean.
Miking the drums and mixing them to two tracks (left and right) is what to spend your energy to get sounding just right, because drums are very hard to fix once recorded. After that, the bass guitar can be run directly into the multitracker so it will come over the headphones, but, not be picked up by the drum mics. Then, finally, the guitar can be run directly also. Even if the sound is not that good, just to complete the rhythm section, then the guitar can be re-recorded over the first take by miking the speaker cabinet to get the sound you want.
In the event you are using a 4-track, the 4 tracks you just recorded will have to be mixed and recorded to a regular stereo deck to get it down to two tracks. This will bring your recording to the regular deck speed, which is a drawback, but, it will free up 2 tracks for vocals, guitar solos, sound effects, or whatever your music needs.
When mixing down the rhythm track, keep in mind that when it is mixed to the 2 tracks, it is permanently mixed, so be sure to get it right, the only way to change it after this is in the premastering (which will be discussed later) and the changes that can be made at that point is minimal.

This year, we bid farewell to Amy Winehouse, Clarence Clemons and Heavy D and said hello to ‘Lulu.’ R.E.M. called it quits, while Creed began work on a new album. Axl Rose took Guns N’ Roses back on the road, but Izzy, Slash and Duff were still nowhere to be found. Clearly, 2011 has been less than perfect.
But the news hasn’t been all bad, and if New England’s 17th century pilgrims — a group of people even crankier and more self-righteous than today’s indie-rock fans — could find it in their hearts to co-invent Thanksgiving, we here at Spinner can show our gratitude for what blessings the year has brought.
So, in the spirit of the season, consider us thankful …
… R.E.M. split up before making their dubstep album. Why couldn’t Korn have done likewise?
… jurors in California and coroners in Britain have brought some closure to the deaths of Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse. We prefer to remember these tragic heroes for their music, not for who or what did them in.

Following the announcement by the Crown Prosecution Service that it has agreed to take on the prosecution of Bobby and Moira Roberts in relation to the mistreatment of their circus elephant Anne, Animal Defenders International (ADI) is now calling for her plight to become symbolic of a UK wild animal circus ban. And Sir Paul McCartney has pledged his support to ADI’s campaign. “I hate to see wild animals in circuses,” said the Beatles legend. “It is heartbreaking to see these poor animals confined in small cages and carted around the country with little respect for their welfare and well-being. I have made my feelings known previously on this subject and I believe an outright ban is long overdue.”
