Indeed, pro audio technologies have brought about an explosion of new songs. If you want to stand out of the crowd and bring your creativity to the world, consider learning the techniques of songwriting and music production.
Recording your own music
Many musicians today own some kind of a home studio and use ProTools or similar recording software. You can record and produce as easily as with a laptop and a UAD Arrow for a couple of hundred dollars. And you can go as far as owning a Neve 5060 home recording console and outboard gear for multiple thousand dollars. Now, where do you put the microphone? How do you capture the sound? What plugin and EQ should you use? What compressor will optimize your audio signal?
Your goals, Mike Simon’s support to achieve them
You can record to be a star on YouTube for a couple of days, or you can aim for high-quality production and your own career on SoundCloud. Music recording and production is a rewarding skill to learn, as it allows you to translate your own vision of your songs into reality. Mike Simon, the Founder and CEO of the Music Teachers Network, became a producer and mix engineer exactly for this reason: to realize his very own vision of his songs.
