I’ve got some exciting news for you loyal HSC fans. 🙂

I’m launching a series of posts designed to give you lots of ideas for how to make your recordings better. The series is called:

31 Days to Better Recordings

Yep, you guessed it. I’ll be posting every day for the entire month of October. The goal is to make you a better recording engineer by Halloween. 🙂

We’ll start out looking at studio equipment and gear, then we’ll move into tips for recording, editing, mixing, and mastering.

All 31 articles will be completely free. However, there’s a catch.

At the end of every article I’ll be posting a daily challenge. This challenge is designed to help you apply that day’s topic and to actually do something with it.

I can teach this stuff all day long, but if you’re not applying it and getting better, then what’s the point? I want you to be a better engineer in November than you were in September. But I can’t do the work for you.

Will you join me?

As we go through 31 Days to Better Recordings (or 31DBR for short), will you do the daily challenges? The first part of every challenge involves leaving a comment on that particular post, telling us either what you’re going to do or what you did do for that challenge.

This should be an awesome experience. The more people we have joining in the conversation, challenging and encouraging each other, the better the experience will be.

If you’ve never commented on articles in the past, I’d encourage you to try it. Like I said, the more involvement we have, the better it will be.

For you more experienced engineers, be sure to chime in and help out the new guys. Share your ideas. As most of you know, my wife and I are having a baby sometime in October, so there’s a chance I won’t be as involved in the comments at some point during the month. That shouldn’t stop you all from interacting, though. 🙂

For you new guys (and girls), don’t be afraid to ask questions. There are a lot of cool, knowledgeable people who hang out here at HSC, and one of them (or me) should be able to help you. (There are no stupid questions, and if anybody gives you a hard time, I won’t hesitate to delete their comment and ban them from the site. This is a safe place to ask your questions.)

Everything begins on Friday, October 1st. Will you join me? Leave a comment below and let me know. (Stretch your commenting muscles. :-))

Can’t wait to get started!!
