The How-To of Studio Recording
Or… “how to write myself out of a job”
This section is a repository of tutorials for developing a studio, recording, and mixing. It’s a collection of knowledge that I’ve acquired from almost 15 years of audio engineering.
Why on earth would I give away my secrets??
Because I learned from being in the trenches. I didn’t go to school to learn to be an audio engineer. I was never formally mentored. I simply jumped in and started twirling the knobs and recording. I tried to find those elusive books that tell you the “how’s” and the “why’s”. I’ve found a few, but they were never very complete. They were written either before the affordable-computer-recording era, or were written by folks who seem to think money is cheap.
I’ve also searched the internet. Ha!
So here’s my attempt at creating a single repository that takes you from start to finish (where ever finish may be) of creating a studio and properly recording and mixing your music.
And if it all seems a bit more than you can manage, remember…
the studio is open!
