We will discuss concepts such as mic selection, eq & compression techniques, and overdubs
Turn on the radio to any station and you will hear people singing. Regardless of the musical genre, I can assure you that at some point a singer sang into a microphone and it was recorded by an engineer. This journey has been taken by countless individuals since the dawn or audio recording. No matter how advanced the recording medium or technology has become, the basic formula remains the same. Singer sings into a microphone, which feeds a pre-amp to amplify the signal, possibly processing such as compression or eq, then the signal is recorded to tape (Pro Tools for us).
It’s never been a better time to be a song creator.

More possibilities to have more people be changed by what you have to say, by what your ideas are, by how fearlessly you can create.
