No, JB would not have been responsible for the physical act of taping two bits of recording tape together. In this instance, it seems to me that two sections from different takes were joined at that top note of the scale. Quite possibly it was the only edit involved.Luis_Br wrote:Yes, but did Bream edited it? I think it is more of a bad edit than a playing fault. Reason some players prefer editing themselves, because it is also a musical decision sometimes.
Well the player might have been physically present before - I think there was a reference somewhere to Bream saying something the effect 'there's a good take on that bit of tape over there' - and they might well still be present in front of the screen now.Luis_Br wrote:Yes, my question was a kind of rhetorical one. Editing was hard in the old days, it is much easier today with pure software, so players are generally more involved nowadays.
Golly, have never heard of that!PeteJ wrote:Ha. You brought back some memories, Stephen..... I once did a session as a player where the producer edited out parts on the multitrack, not cutting the tape but cutting out slots in the tape.....
If I record a simple piece that needs no edits it's like winning the lottery. I'm not sure it's ever happened but sometimes I settle for what it is. Recording is often about creating a public and permanent record and eschewing editing is not a good plan for pleasing the listener unless you're a tip-top player. I think sometimes folks don't realise how much work goes into recording.glassynails wrote:Glassynails doesn't do edits. I play live good or bad!
Editing is cheating!
