Today, music studio software is so easily available that everyone and his dog is recording music.

And there's the problem. How do you keep a dog quiet when every time you start recording she starts barking? Oh Well

Yes, that means you. Don't look so innocent.

Mine wouldn't bark.
He'd walk in and sneeze or scratch his neck and make the I.D. tags on his collar rattle. Mad

Maybe try keeping your dog distracted with snacks?
I don’t know.
Cute dog though.

Personally I think a dog barking in the background is desirable for a home recording.

If, like me, you record all the instruments of the band yourself, one at a time, and then mix them down into stereo, eight channels with a dog barking on each of them might sound like it was recorded in a kennel. Laughing

Fortunately, I can feed the bass, electric guitars and steel directly into the mixer without a microphone, but the vocals, fiddle, dobro and mandolin are another thing.... Rolling Eyes

Once I was recording a harmonica track, intended to capture the feel of a man walking the green mile to the gas chamber.
Hopi chimed in, howling; I left it in because it captured the mournfulness of the moment. Great studio dog.

Don't let the RSPCA know about that. Laughing

Alan, you've met my dog and you know how discerning he is. Or deaf, one or the other Smile

Now I have another problem. The cat who sees me reading and sits on the book, sees me typing into the computer and insists on sitting on the keyboard, sees me recording and insists on walking across the mixing board, messing up the settings.

It's the ultimate solution to paws on the equipment, but unfortunately it induces howling. Oh Well Shocked
