    My ritual/process is
    1. Get the feeling of wanting to record
    2. Gather my mic and other itema I need and move into the room I record in
    3. Set up my mic and pop filter and then open up my laptop and open oremo, let it load while I get water
    4. Think about how much I hate Oremo on macs.
    5. Move myself and the computer into my recording closet
    6. Traditionally accidentally hit my head/glasses on my suspended pop filter.
    7.set my file save folder and open up the pitch keeper in oremo.
    That's about it

    1. Decide I want to record
    2. Make sure it's quiet enough that I can/I won't be told to do anything for awhile
    3. Turn off fan
    4. Grab blanket to cover myself, my computer, and my microphone with
    5. Record
    6. Put blanket back on bed
    7. Turn fan back on
    8. Put unfinished bank in UTAU

    that's basically what I do

    1. decide i want to record (either seriously or for the lolz)
    2. figure out when i'd be alone and schedule myself for that accordingly
    3. get my earphones ready
    4. put the reclist and audacity side by side
    5. get panicky whenever i hear even the slightest sounds and suddenly stop audacity
    6. replay it just to hear if the noise got in
    7. realize it was only getting your voice the entire time so you just wasted audio footage you dingus
    8. regret everything and just lie on the floor
    9. idk record i think
    10. cut cut cut
    11. save save save
    12. regret regret regret

    Pre-record:
    1. Pick a laptop to use.
    2. Hook up the UR12
    3. Position said laptop where I have access without too much fan noise.

    Record:
    1. Open up Mixcraft
    2. Load any random song to practice singing the tone I want (usually in the target language to get pronunciation reinforced)
    3. Start a new project with 1 track and open GTune.
    4. Load reclist/make reclist
    5. Record. Stop to drink. Re-record if the dog, animals outside, cars, etc. make noise.
    6. Put finished files through audacity to silence voiceless areas.
    7. Oto
    8. Run through a ust
    9. Render and mix
    10. Die

    1. Waits for family to go outside
    2. Plug-in mic and move it around so it won't make loud buzz sound
    3. Open Audacity & reclist
    4. Get a water, record loudly like a boss
    5. Use 'noise reduction'
    6. Re-record the recorded sound w/ pc, just to make it louder w/o voice distortion
    7. Export, generate and .oto
    8. check samples, .oto again
    9. and .oto again

    1. Charge my tablet and go somewhere quiet.
    2. Open Audacity.
    3. Record several samples at once.
    4. Use mild Noise Reduction.
    5. Save the big .wav file and sort later.
    Result: 200 some samples.
    (I record binge pretty bad)

    Step 6. Die because of strain on vocal cords. Since I've only recently recorded a voicebank in my natural voice, it starts getting hard to talk after recording. Especially after ones like Kamui (High and nasal) and Albert (Low AF).

    5. Open the door again to go and get water (I wasn't doing this at first oops)
    6. Talk a bit to see if the mic's working (just kidding, it's because I still don't want to record)

    o, is this thread still active? : ' D
    Before Recording:
    1. Migrate my computer, microphone, popfilter, stand, wires and cables over to my recording closet
    2. make room and set up computer so it's standing vertical, love you tablet computers
    3. Plug in the USB and Microphone and get Oremo and microphone settings all ready
    4. Proceed to cry, get water and do vocal warm ups
    After:
    1. Fidget a lot and hope it doesn't get picked up by my microphone
    2. Scream at loud cars and motorcycles ruining my samples
    3. Standing in the closet for 3-6 hours screaming aiuea and hope it sounds great
    4. burp
    5. Resist the urge to pee after 3 hours
    6. Save all files to USB drive because I've learned my lesson with loosing files on my computer
    7. Keep them on my USB drive and leave them there for 5+ months until I eventually oto them
