Having your own Recording Studio is not only for the rich and famous anymore.
Anyone can now produce a great and professional sounding song at home, in their own Home Recording Studio. This course is an introduction to recording music at home. An easy to follow course that will learn you the basics.

What you'll learn from this course?
You will learn where and when recording started and how it evolved over time. The difference between a Big Studio and a Home Studio or Project Studio. What the advantages are of having a fully digital studio, and a short history of synthezisers that came up in the 80's and now still are used as virtual plugins. And ofcourse I will tell you a little bit about MIDI, the system that glues it all together.

What you won't learn
If you want a quick solution for setting up your own recording studio, that is in the next course. This introduction course is just and entrance into the world of sounds and music.

Before starting
I have done my best to make this course as easy to follow as possible. Since I am no native English speaker, some mistakes in pronounciation or in the choice of words might occur. Please don't shoot me for that. I am just trying and hoping to give you the best of my knowledge I gained during the decades I worked in music studio's in the Netherlands.
