See If You Can Tell The Difference!
Neither one is "yippedy-doo-dah" fabulous, and one of them is downright bad. Even if you couldn't tell the difference, what does that tell you? One of these was recorded with a mic that was 100 times more expensive! If you're curious about which was which, the first one (about GPS drawing) was the one recorded on the $500 mic. The second one was recorded with a $5.00 plastic pc mic.
What's So Great About Home Brew Audio?
Great sound quality is MUCH MORE about understanding a few key principles of audio, and MUCH LESS about the cost of the equipment than most people think. And here's better news: The few key principles are easy to learn...IF you have the right teacher. That's where we come in.
You'll learn all you need to know with our video tutorials, articles, and tons of other resources on the site. There are a lot of people out there who thought home recording was the realm of tech geeks and audio engineers with lots of school and tons of expensive gear. It turns out....it's not!
In this day of ubiquitous (cool word huh?) computers and widely-available digital tech and amazingly affordable home recording software, just about anyone who has a computer and an internet connection (or not!) can produce professional quality audio with tools you already have! You may have to shell out $5.00 for a microphone if you don't already have one, but that is all you need to get started.
Our motto at Home Brew Audio is "Knowledge Trumps Gear." And we are here to provide that knowledge. We are not about using any specific programs, effects, microphones, etc. Our goal is to teach the basics that will apply to audio regardless of what gear you use! Fun, fun, fun!
