Thread Name: Using a music stand
Subject: RE: Using a music stand

Yep. In the studio, definitely time is money. And you are often finalizing or altering arrangements there. Not to mention you are concentrating usually on one part or instrument at a time, often in separate booths or playing your part along to other pre-recorded parts coming through the headphones. Throw a click-track into the mix and you've got a lot of crap to deal with. If a stand is a crutch, so be it. You are trying fo your best, cleanest performance of the song or tune there and any extra help you need in that sterile environment is welcome.

It's very different from a live performance in front of an audience.
