PENNSAUKEN, NJ – April 20, 2012 – Disc Makers announces the release of its latest “Home Studio Series” guide, focusing on the monetary challenges faced by musicians looking to create a quality home recording space without spending thousands of dollars on construction efforts.
Creating a Home Project Studio: How to get optimal results from your space and budget is the second in Disc Makers' “Home Studio Series” of free download guides, set to include seven titles spanning topics like building a professional home studio, outfitting a studio for under $1,000, choosing the right microphones, and making great mixes at home.
Creating a Home Project Studio zeroes in on basic acoustic principles, and provides advice on how to manage acoustics in a room, techniques for room arrangement, and a primer – complete with a glossary of terms – on acoustics. Veteran studio engineer and author Keith Hatschek (The Golden Moment: Recording Secrets of the Pros) co-wrote the guide with Disc Makers' managing editor, Andre Calilhanna.
“The first installment in the Home Studio Series focused on the process of constructing a real pro studio in your home,” says Calilhanna, "complete with floating rooms and isolation booths. The new guide takes a more practical approach for the home recording enthusiast. We give advice on how to maximize the acoustics in your space and apply basic acoustic principles – the same ones a professional studio would – in creating an optimal environment to track and mix a recording."
Disc Makers, the nation’s leading independent disc manufacturer, maintains Echoes, a DIY music blog, and has published over a dozen guides aimed at helping musicians sustain their own careers. This series of guides is their first to tackle the topic of home recording.
Volume one in the series,Building a Professional Home Studio: A no-skimping guide to turning your living room into an A-Room, is also available for free download right now. Upcoming titles in the Home Studio Series will include The $999 Home Studio Guide; The Home Studio Microphone Guide; Using Compressors, Delays, and Reverb; and Getting Great Tones in Your Home Studio.
"Each new volume will touch on a different topic related to recording," explains Calilhanna. "By the end, we'll have a rich, well-rounded resource filled with nuggets of wisdom from folks who have plenty of recording experience and lots to share on the subject."
