Series: Basics of Recording

Series: Basics of Recording

I record all my music with my dinky little home-recording setup. I’ve been asked more than a few times about my recording and video editing process, so I’m going to write a series of posts on the basics of audio recording. You’ll learn all you need to know to get your songs out of your head and into your stereo (or iPod).

Check back to this page as I’ll link to each post in the series right here. Planned post topics include:

1. Essential Hardware – What You Need to Get Started
2. Hardware I Use
3. Microphones
4. Interfaces
5. Software
6. Prepping For Recording
7. Mic Placement

Once we get the groundwork laid, I’ll go into posts about more software-specific basics like EQ, compression, mixing, etc.

Is there anything else you’d like to know specifically about recording? Let me know in the comments, and I’ll add it to the list.
