Saw a clip from “The Matrix” the other day.

Remember that part where Neo meets Morpheus for the first time?

Neo wants answers. He wants the truth.

Morpheus offers him two pills — a blue one and a red one.

One pill allows him to go on in “blissful” ignorance.

The other will reveal the truth about his reality…what the the Matrix is.

Neo has an epic choice — to ignore reality (because it might be too difficult to face) or to dive headlong into the truth.

As a warning, Morpheus says, “Remember, all I’m offering is the truth, nothing more.”

Now back to you.

Are you at a turning point in your home studio?

Do you feel like you’ve gotten pretty far, and you KNOW there are great recordings to be made, if only you could uncover what’s missing…

…but it doesn’t happen?

To quote the super-cool Morpheus (with his magical sunglasses), “I know exactly how you feel.”

Recording in a home studio can, at times, feel both enjoyable and frustrating. Easy and difficult. Simple and complex.

There’s a lot involved in taking a song from start to finish. Oftentimes you can get halfway there, only to feel like Alice in Wonderland, falling down the rabbit hole.

Then comes the moment of truth. Do you just call it quits and take up a different hobby?

Or maybe you keep trying the same thing over and over, expecting to somehow get different results?


Maybe you take the red pill.

Will it be difficult? Sure.

Will you hear things you may not want to hear? Yeppers.

Will you be moving towards dramatically better recordings? Absolutely.

But it’s up to you.

I can teach until I’m blue in the face, but it’s YOUR responsibility to get in there and make these great recordings happen.

No one else will do it for you.

So…what’s it gonna be?

My suggestion?

Join the Production Club, fill in the missing pieces…

…and find out “how deep rabbit hole goes…”

See you on the inside…
