In a perfect world, you would have the most amazing home studio. You would have all the equipment you could ever need. You’d have huge tracking rooms, awesome vocal booths, and a control room that would make you drool just a little bit. In addition, you would have an entire army of A-list musicians waiting in the wings to offer their talent at the drop of a hat.
If this describes your studio, then you can stop reading now. 🙂 For the rest of us in the real world, please read on.

A couple days ago someone emailed me asking how to insert more time at the beginning of a Pro Tools session. Sometimes you get to the end of a recording, and you come up with an idea for a great intro, but you don’t have enough space at the beginning of your session! Not a problem. Check it out.
For some reason YouTube is misbehaving today, so here’s the video from Blip.tv:

It’s been a relaxing weekend so far. This post will be a short one. I plan to work on my album tomorrow. I’m contemplating posting some tracks here for you to critique or even re-mix. We’ll see. 🙂
Have a relaxing, musical weekend. I leave you with a picture.
This week’s Ask Joe question is an intriguing one. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the topic, so be sure to leave a comment!

I was wondering if it was worth the money to take the classes for Pro Tools Certification and if you did would that help out your chances to find work in this diminishing market? Thanks.

Parallel processing is something you’ll come across at one point or another as you dive deeper into the world of recording. Basically, it’s the process of treating two identical copies of a piece of audio with different effets, then blending them together.
In this video, I show you a way to use parallel processing on drums. Enjoy!
Last night About2Flip commented on the Intro to Compression video:

Take a look at this screenshot of a compressor plugin:
