Workshop: Intro To Home Recording

Home - Workshop: Intro To Home Recording

Taught by Jon Humphrey 

Class now available on video.

This 2-hour class will introduce many of the fundamentals of home recording from basic setup and microphone selection to using a digital audio workstation (DAW) using affordable equipment. The class will allow participants to listen to recordings of the same material using many different microphones so they can compare the quality of different equipment and obtain higher quality recordings using existing or affordable equipment whenever they record. The class will focus on using open-source materials whenever possible to help make recording a viable possibility in any setting.

Participants will be asked to download open-source free software before the class and will have access to recordings to listen to while watching the video. You will also get Jon’s email and can send him any questions you have.

This is a great class for anyone interested in improving their home recordings including teachers, high school students and parents.
