Hey Guys, this is Andrew D. calling out to all the metal heads that have made it further than I have in a band. That is actually recording a full album. Now for starters i have many questions but i will keep this post quick.

What are the biggest tips you can give to a poor metal head on how to produce a track.

My materials:
I have the Personus studio one artist recording program and i have all the other pieces needed to record. I just have no clue where to start. Like what instrument to track first and what the best way to track that instrument is. For example, I've heard people like to record different section of drums at different times, like cymbals then drums and bass. What do you think works the best. (not just for drums to clarify)
