FREE SEMINAR: Introduction to Home Recording

Learn how to set up your own recording studio at home -- easily and on a budget -- at an introductory seminar hosted by songwriter/producer Neel Modi. This event is FREE.

Neel has more than 25 years' experience in MIDI recording and sequencing software and has been audio recording for more than 10 years.  He records singer-songwriters at his home studio.



Learn the basics, including what you need to know to quickly begin recording -- without getting too technical.

Topics will include:

  • elements of a home recording studio

  • understanding digital audio

  • audio interfaces

  • microphones

  • software

  • recording process

  • editing basics

  • mixing basics

The topics will be presented in an easy-to-understand manner, with the focus on creating music. Information will be general in nature and applicable to any computer platform or software package.

During the session, Neel will debunk myths and misunderstandings about audio recording.

A question and answer period will follow Neel's presentation.
