Introduction to Music Home Recording and Producing

Let’s have a look at some basic facts about music production:

  • The level of technology in low budget equipment has increased in the proportion of 400% in the latest years
  • High number of free or very low cost applications were published both on Mac and on Windows platforms
  • The main methods for recording and editing music have become very intuitive and easy to understand and use
  • Lots of old and expensive devices and equipment have been literally outclassed by new electronic versions of recorders, microphones, amplifiers, effects etc.

Understanding these points, we were starting a new research, selecting existing videos and articles, and we’ll soon produce a new self updating tutorial for helping musicians (especially those who play acoustic instruments, like classical and acoustic guitars, pianos, wind instruments etc.) to record and edit the best part of their music, and to be able to update and improve recording at anytime, comfortably working in their own place, wherever it is.

This kind of new mentality, which sooner or later every player will achieve, will bring the musicians to save big amounts of money and, most important, to really master the production of their music. In fact they will:

  • SAVE big amounts of money (in fact when they go to studios, either they have to spend a lot for recording or they simply won’t record anything)
  • MASTER their own productions, and be able to decide what really their music should sound like, without having to accept the technicians’ envision which many times is quite far from the musicians expectations. By saying this I don’t want by no mean discredit the audio technician work, but as a matter of fact many times they follow their own wrong convincements, and impose their choice to the musicians, who tends to trust them, having as a result that in many cases they realize (AFTER that the work is finished and paid) that it should have done differently, but then it’s already done, and it’s not possible to change UNLESS they put again their hand on their wallet
  • BE FREE to record their music when they really feel like doing that, not having to follow any kind of scheduled timetable for recording, and to re-record it as many times as they feel, without any additional cost
  • TRY DIFFERENT WAYS of editing the final sound, then take their time to understand what the best choice could be
  • UPDATE their production in the future, replacing one or more instruments parts with better ones, or adding new instruments and solutions to a previously recorded session
