Save yourself the heartache - and give your music some heart!

You’re probably thinking of saving bucks on booking a recording studio by trying to record at home yourself. Here’s why you shouldn’t:

● Time you can spend rehearsing will be spent trying to learn how to record and edit

● The money you think you’re saving will be spent on buying expensive equipment, soundproofing, and software

● Creating music and engineering music take up very different parts of the brain. It’s very likely that when you spend a lot of time figuring out the technical aspects of your recording, your musical creativity gets burnt out

● It’s always a good idea to have a professional lend an ear to your music to point out the technicalities you didn’t even know existed, and help you fix them in the right environment and with the right equipment


Help your career, don't hurt it!

There are three key components of a good recording studio – the skills of the engineer, the accuracy of the equipment, and the quality of the listening environment.

A good audio engineer will know how to listen critically, what kind of equipment to use for what kind of recording, how far away to place the mic, what acoustic properties the recording room should have, and the mechanics of how to make your audio sound the way you want it to.

Yes, there’s a lot more involved in recording, mixing, and reproducing than simply placing a mic and pressing ‘record’.
