But Can’t Anyone Make a Record at Home These Days?

Yes, but that doesn’t mean is will be GOOD. There is a common misconception that because recording gear is more affordable now than ever before, it makes the pro engineer less valuable. This is wrong, and I’ll tell you why.

Think about this… everyone has a camera on their phone these days. Does that mean people don’t hire professional photographers anymore? No. My wife is a professional photographer, and she gets plenty of clients. People know that just because they have a camera, it doesn’t make them a pro.

I believe it’s the same with recording. You could own the nicest studio in the world, with all of the best gear ever, and make some pretty bad recordings. It doesn’t matter how affordable or available good gear is, if you don’t know how to use it. This is why pro engineers are just as valuable today as ever.

So the way I see it, you have two options. You can either, pay a pro, or BECOME a pro.

Fortunately, information is also more available than ever before. But WHERE do you look? Chill. I want to help you. I want to share with you all of the knowledge that I have acquired over the years about making great music. And I want to show you how to this in a home studio.

Why should you listen to me? Because I started out knowing nothing about recording, thinking it was too hard to ever be good at, and I now know how to make a good recording in my home studio. Check back for tips and stuff. But in the mean time, go make some recordings, good or bad, just make them.  -Jared
