Understanding EQ

  • EQ can be a frustrating process to learn and understand completely. In this tutorial series, I teach you how to become confident in your ability to EQ anything.

Understanding Compression

  • Compression was a big mystery to me when I first started recording. It took me a long time (and lots of hours) before I felt comfortable using it. In this series, I teach YOU how to become comfortable with compression (in much less time than it took me).

Understanding Editing

  • Editing is one of those skills that can be difficult to learn. It’s essentially the process of taking your recorded tracks and polishing them, getting them ready for mixing. In these videos (over 3 hours), I explain to you the nuts and bolts of editing audio, everything from removing unwanted pops and clicks from a vocal track to pocketing bass, guitar, and drums. It took me years to learn how to do this efficiently. Now I’ve condensed all that information down into a single tutorial series.

Understanding Your Room

  • Your room is lying to you. Understanding Your Room gives you 6 hours of training on room acoustics and acoustic treatment. Without a properly treated room, your chances of making great-sounding recordings are shot.
