So you are ready to professionally record your music, and you've been jamming them live for weeks/months/years but at best you've heard room recordings or had some quick videos to assess. The recording process puts everything under the microscope, so before you commit to a final recording process creating some good drafts will allow you to assess things like individual instrument parts and vocal parts and how well they work together, and provide a chance to fine tune things before you start the process of a professional recording for release and distribution to your audience.
Pre-production can also be a good way to test concepts of things that may not be possible live (or not easy to accomplish). A pre-production recording can establish things like specific song structure/key/tempo changes or provide the opportunity to have a clear recording of basic instrument and vocal tracking to experiment with instrument/vocal overdubbing or the addition of additional performed or programmed instrumentation and sound design.
The process of pre-production is meant to be a sketchpad to aid in the final production of any project, and gives an opportunity to draft material for final recordings here or to use as a cost effective way to begin the process if you plan to make arrangements to record at another facility for any reason. The following is a short list of pre-production tasks/activities that may be valuable to your project:
