Intro to Recording

Your Journey to Better Recordings and Mixes Starts HERE

Since launching Home Studio Corner in 2009, I’ve answered literally thousands of questions from people trying to get things rolling in their own home recording studio. It wasn’t until recently that I took many of those answers and packaged them into a course designed to lay a solid foundation for you to build on as you embark on this journey to make a bunch of great music at home.  

I use that term foundation intentionally. Whether you are brand new to recording or have been recording for years, we all need to be reminded of the basics, the core principles behind making great music. While I’ve released 50+ songs of my own music and worked on countless other projects, I still regularly review the basics. Get those down, and you can do almost anything in the studio.  

But without a solid grasp of the basics, your home studio is missing its foundation, so to speak. Much like a faulty foundation in your home will lead to countless problems in the future, if you don’t lay a good foundation of home recording knowledge, you’ll constantly come up against problems you won’t know how to solve (or problems that could have been prevented in the first place). Michael Jordan needed to practice his jump shot (even at the height of his career), and you and I need to understand and practice the basics in order to make the music we always dreamed of making.  

That brings us to Intro to Recording.

What's it about? 

Intro to Recording is an online course designed to get you up to speed on what it takes to make great recordings in your home studio. One of the biggest “secrets” to producing music is to get the recording part right. If the recordings are great, the mixes will be great. If the recordings are shabby, the mixes will be slightly less shabby.


Great records aren’t mixed, they’re RECORDED.  

Like I mentioned earlier, whether you’re brand new or experienced, this course will be good for you. If you’re new, it’ll lay a good foundation. If you’re experienced, it’ll remind you of what’s important and fill in the gaps in your knowledge.  

As with all of my courses, the goal is for you to be making better music by the end of it. If that doesn’t happen, you need to ask me for a refund. Seriously. That’s the deal.  

What’s included?  

Intro to Recording is a series of videos that walk you through all the important aspects of recording.  

You’ll learn:  

  • The single most important concept to the whole home recording process. (Get this right, and the rest becomes a breeze.)
  • The key components of a simple recording setup. (Recording doesn’t have to be complicated, and it doesn’t need to involve a huge list of equipment. A few key pieces is all you need to get started.)
  • How to THINK about equipment, and how it all works together.
  • What a DAW is (recording software), and how it’s designed to work.
  • What digital audio is and how it works (and why it’s awesome)
  • All about preamps — what they are, what they do, when and if you need “better” ones.
  • The all-important recording workflow. (So you know what you want to record, but where do you start?)
  • Basic microphone techniques and strategies. (Get good at these core concepts and strategies, and you’ll be able to approach ANY instrument with confidence that you will get a good recording.)
  • And a whole bunch more…  

In addition to all the game-changing information you’ll learn, I’ve also included a couple challenges for you. Learning is pointless unless you combine it with action. I’ve built challenges right into the course, designed to help you solidify the concepts you just learned by putting them into practice.  

On top of all that, if you have questions along the way, I’ll be available to point you in the right direction.  

This course is a no-brainer. You could spend hundreds of dollars taking a college-level “Audio 101” course, and you’ll learn a bunch of stuff, but it won’t be terribly helpful. Intro to Recording is designed from the ground up to teach you everything you need to know to get up and running in YOUR home studio. I teach you the important concepts and leave off the excess. That’s how it should be.  

If you’re ready to get started, just click the button below and go through the purchase process. A few moments and $47 later, and you’ll be diving into Video #1.  

I’m excited for you. Better recordings are right around the corner.
