- Home Recording Tactics
- Music Production
Do you ever sit in your studio, working on a project, and you think, “I wonder how another engineer does this?”
Yep, me too. I remember many a night of spending hours working on a song, only to feel like I was just spinning my wheels, and never making any progress. I thought if I could just sit down and talkwith a few engineers, I would be well on my way to making better recordings.
That’s exactly what I’ve done with Home Recording Tactics.
You may not have access to a bunch of different recording engineers, so I’m bringing them to you.
What is “Home Recording Tactics”?
Home Recording Tactics is a series of 9 interviews with recording engineers from around the world.
I interviewed each of them individually about their experiences in home recording. They each have a unique perspective on home recording, and they graciously agreed to share their ideas with us.
