Kenny Schick – Home Recording Workshop
Beginner to Intermediate (a little knowledge of recording is helpful)
Whatever software or recording device you use, it is ultimately a great capture of a great performance that results in a compelling recording of your song.
Learn about recording techniques, microphones & microphone placement, preamps, compressors, as well as how to get the best sound from your instrument and your vocals. We will discuss room acoustics and working around limitations of a home environment as well as studio performance techniques and the many approaches to recording a song.
This workshop is for people who already have software or devices to record with and want to know more about capturing great sound. We will not cover specific software or recording devices in detail as this will be covered in other workshops. We will be using Protools for examples.
The material covered in the workshop is ideal for singer songwriters or anyone who has tried to record their own music and would like to advance their knowledge of how to get a better sounding recording. Learn about the difference between a mediocre sounding demo and a final version of a song fit for commercial release.
