When recording your music do not make dangerous assumptions that will destroy your sound. If you are tired, go home; do not force yourself to make a bad recording just to get it done. Patience is a virtue as an artist; don’t rush into it. Do not presume someone will fix up your bad recording; fix it yourself! Check and double check the placement of your microphone and make sure your cables are in excellent condition because they can ruin your sound in subtle ways.
