Professional music in an amateur studio ???? Right?? A lie?

Professional music in an amateur studio ???????

Despite what others say, it is absolutely possible to create quality music in an amateur studio.


We live in a digital age where any of us can start a business from our bedroom!!!!!!!. 

There's no excuse why you can't make great music. And great music is no longer determined by the equipment you use but It all starts with you and your approach to your work.

What do you think is a successful release? 

Being able to write and record music with the equipment I already have, and knowing my equipment well is number one (#1). 
This will make your song sound better than if you have a million dollars worth of equipment but don't know how to use it properly. 

Money is and always has been an issue. 
But we all call it different things.  
Some people just like to say whatever fits. And I call it laziness, and it's also called an excuse. 

I often hear excuses like (I don't have the right equipment to record a good song). 

Yes, you need equipment to record music.

These are the things you can't do without 

| Computer | Audio interface | Studio microphone | Daw | Studio monitors | Headphones |

| Sonarworks reference | Pink noise calibration Bob Katz |

When artists blame the resulting quality of their music on their equipment. They're lying to themselves. 

They begin to believe that they can only improve the quality of their music by going to a high-end studio. 
However, this is not true.

Come on, think about it. 
You'll realize that not only do you feel more comfortable in your own environment, but that some of the best sounding songs you've made were made right there and then with you, from that microphone and that equipment you're using now.

The studios not make your Hits, but it's primarily you artists who come up with the idea and put your soul into it. 

You tend to believe that.It's a fairy tale, I mean you need expensive equipment or a fancy studio. And I understand that. We see artists recording in studios, so that's how they have to create their masterpieces. 

I'm sorry. 

That's what producers, writers, recording artists, engineers, songwriters and others do. And not by themselves. 
But all together!

Your equipment will only enhance your talent and potential.

If you pay attention to him.

I'm not going to argue with you and tell you that Studio is useless. The studio has a purpose.   
Recording at home has its advantages and disadvantages. I'm not going to contradict you because I too have experienced problems when I record at home. 

If your mixes sound crappy or not even close to what you hear on the radio. You have no idea if what you're doing is right.You're doing what you think sounds best. 
There are a lot of things you need to know to avoid going down a path that leads to a dead end. I'll give you some tips and maybe some of them will lead you down a path that leads out of the dead end out.

1. Recording techniques 

The most important thing to understand is what it takes to mix vocals. Only then will you discover why recording quality vocals is so important. Because it depends on the recording itself. 

If you don't know the right techniques for recording vocals, you will end up spending a lot of time.  
Without seeing any results. Realize that in this time you're wasting, you could have known about several vocal recording techniques a long time ago, and you could have experimented and tried what would be the best solution for your situation instead. 

Essential to recording is: 

| Microphone placement |
 | Microphone distance |
| The Microphone |
| Movement behind the mic |
| Directional Characteristics |
| Five Finger Rule |

2. Voice production 

Vocal production is like beat making.However, instead of adding new instruments, you add vocal layers.You stack layers on top of specific lyrics to give them more emphasis.

Building vocal production for the chorus.For example,adding backing vocals, harmonies or ad-libs.It is important to learn in which situations you should use layers of vocals and in which situations you should not.

Vocal production is a determining factor for the potential of your song.


3. Learn the basics

EQ,Signal routing,Compression,Saturation and Effects 

Whether you choose to mix the music yourself or have someone else mix it, someone experienced.It's important that you know the basics.And that you make the right recording technically. 
Try to remove distracting elements during the recording process.

If you're not sure,you can definitely be sure that no mixer will fix your bad takes that go into distortion.Learn at least the basics of mixing vocals.It will relieve stress and save a lot of effort and embarrassment. 

There are obviously people who make a full time living mixing music in their bedroom. This also proves that it is not impossible to mix music from a home studio. 

Take the time to watch some tutorials on YouTube or also reach for the old familiar books and read!!!!!!!

Invest in yourself and buy some online course that will explain the basics in detail.

It will take your skills to the next level.




We all make mistakes. 
The important thing is to learn. 
If you put a system into your rules, you are less likely to get things wrong. 

I hope you have enjoyed this article and it has given you at least a little energy to decide to study music more in depth.
