Music production in your own home studio

Creating and producing your own music - the art and science of music production is something we'd all like to improve.

It can be so frustrating when the music you've made isn't sounding as sharp as you'd like, or when you're struggling to produce the same sounds as on your favorite songs or CDs.

But by learning a few key principles and applying simple and practical techniques to your music, you can improve the level of your productions and recordings to levels you never thought possible. You can discover how to get those sounds rattling around your brain out into the real world.

Hearing the improvements in your productions will feed and boost your confidence levels, pushing you to keep creating and to keep progressing. The more you learn and practice, the more you'll want to be in your studio, making and producing music.

So how exactly is music created? The process of making a finished, polished product can be broken down into four main areas:

  • Recording
  • Mixing
  • Producing
  • Mastering

The biggest focus here at Practical Music Production will be on the first three - Recording, Mixing, and Producing.

At this stage you probably have many questions...

How do you record your vocals and instruments? What microphones should you use? Where do you position the microphones? Can you use more than one mic to record a track? Should you EQ the sound before you record? How about compressing it?

What about mixing? Should you mix one sound at a time, or start with everything? EQ? Compression? Reverb? Special effects?

You may know what I'm talking about here, or you may not. It really doesn't matter at this stage. Everything will be explained in concise and easy-to-follow steps that you can't fail to follow. You'll get excited at the immediate results you hear and the killer tracks you'll be producing.

So, let's fire things up and start making some music!
