Music Production, Home Recording, Studio Equipment, Reviews
What do you think about when you hear the words “Recording Studio“? Do you picture huge rows of equipment, with acoustically treated rooms and a large window seperating some famous musician and the producer? Many people dream about being on either side of that window, but don’t realize they can start recording themselves or other musicians right from their homes and still achieve quality tracks. The key to quality music production isn’t the fancy equipment (of course it doesn’t hurt), but the knowledge and experience of the people using the equipment. We offer you the music production knowledge to help you gain the experience.
