The home studio is an indispensable tool for musicians and composers. I’ve been working in my own home studio for 30 years, and have helped set up more than 20 professional studios! From recording studio to project studio to home studio.
But what can you do in a home studio?
That’s the subject I’ll be tackling in this issue of “home studio tips and tricks”. It’s part of my computer-assisted music blog. The aim of these articles is to bring you my 30 years of experience in the audio engineering profession.
I set up my first studio at the age of 14, on a tape recorder in my bedroom. Over time, I became a composer, sound engineer and sound designer. A path that led me to become an Apple Mentor Trainer.
Every year, I create tracks in my home studio, exploring a variety of musical styles such as Trap, Dance and Pop Rock.
I’m fully conversant with MIDI and audio. If you’d like to find out more about me and my background, please visit the “About” page.
The articles are not intended as home studio courses or training. They answer questions frequently asked during courses or training sessions, and address concerns that any user may have.
To set up your home studio, it’s important to organize your work space properly.
I’m recommending the articles of dedicated a coin or a coin house especially to the musical creation because it’s a place in which you’re going to many time as much the pleasant rendering!
Acoustic treatment of the room is also important to optimize sound and avoid unwanted resonance.
First of all, when it comes to recording music, you need the right instruments, microphones and preamps to capture the sounds and record them optimally.
I’ll discuss the choice of a quality sound card to guarantee good audio recording, working your compositions entirely in the computer or using a mixer to mix and adjust the different audio tracks.
I’ll tell you about equalizers, reverbs, compression, delays and effects to enhance your mix.
Finally, for beginners, start with affordable equipment and invest as you learn and gain experience.
A studio is bound to evolve – my home studio is currently in version 6, so nothing is set in stone!
I’m well aware that setting up a home studio can be a real challenge, but the aim is to equip yourself with a high-performance work tool adapted to your needs.
And for that I recommend investing in a good computer and peripherals to facilitate creation, such as a synthesizer or a master keyboard or a control surface.
That’s why I’ll be talking about certain plug-ins in my articles!
Software such as Logic Pro or Ableton Live for arranging, mixing, mastering and even sound design! I invite you to discover them on their respective themes.
Everything to do with virtual instruments that simulate the sound of guitars, basses, keyboards and percussion will be covered either in this theme or with the Stans of the MAO blog.
I share with you my production techniques to help you tap your creative potential by recording, mixing and composing your music in any style, using professional equipment and mastering production techniques.
Of course, I recommend the use of good monitoring speakers, which are essential for the sound quality of your musical productions.
I’m counting on you to come up with ideas for topics – your input is invaluable!
