Home Recording Studio Courses

"This website really helped to find the resources I was looking for!" 

The goal of HRS Courses is to provide you free information about the many tools you can use, working in your own home studio. We create video reviews of many free and some affordable paid instrument plugins, effects and tools you can use for your music. 

Besides that you can find information on how to set up your own recording studio at home or how to use this studio to make some great professional recordings and mixes. This will start your carreer, making your own music as a DJ, EDM artist or a Film Score composer.
