We live in an unprecedented age of recording music. With studio gear so affordable and computers becoming increasingly powerful, you can now have everything you need to record and produce top notch music in your home for practically next to nothing. This has opened doors for musicians and bands to push their creativity to new heights without the burden of being “on the clock” in a commercial studio.
My goal for this blog is to educate and empower a new generation of musicians and songwriters to make outstanding music with their home studio. I hope to break through the hype and marketing that tells people they need to spend more money if they want better results. I want to eliminate any and all excuses prohibiting great talent from making great recordings.
