I've been an independent producer and audio engineer for around fifteen years now and have been blogging since 2001. This is a blog that features tips and secrets for better music production and engineering. Learn how the pros of yesterday and today get the sounds that you love. We’ll be covering such topics as working with Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs), microphone and instrument combinations, coaching artists to get the most out of their performances, and developing effective business practices for the independent producer. I'm aiming at having posts for beginners, intermediate, and advanced experience levels. Keep tuned, visit often, and get to work!
