Reply To: Recording the band during rehearsals
I’ve had the issue before with not so hot recording equipment. It tends to wash out the bass, and make everything very top heavy, which will lend itself to an out of tune sound.
If intonation is actually a problem (you think), close the score and step away from the group. Get back and really just listen to what they are playing. Intonation issues should seem obvious at that point. It’s hard sometimes to not hear what you wish you heard when it’s your own group.
