The Newbies Guide to Audio Recording Awesomeness

If you think recording professional audio means you have to go to a commercial recording studio, or else buy (and learn to use) expensive and complicated gear, we’ve got great news!

You don’t need to do either.

If you’ve gone to a commercial recording studio to record your music or voice-over demos, you know it can be intimidating. And there’s no doubt that it’s expensive.

But audio recording is very technical and hard to learn. So if you don’t have a lot of money it may seem like you’ll never be able to record your songs or start that voice-over career. It really feel like you’re stuck.

Wouldn’t it be great if someone could show you – in a way that’s clear and easy-to-understand:

  • How you can record your own professional audio on your computer? And…
  • It turned out you didn’t need a ton of expensive gear or software to do it?

Well here is the good news…

The Newbies Guide To Audio Recording Awesomeness Does Both!

Spend your valuable time actually creating awesome recordings. At home, and on your own schedule. Our short but powerful video tutorials show you only what you need to know, without wasting your time. You’ll be up and running in just a few hours.

Even better, you’ll be able to create incredible audio with very inexpensive gear.

For example – below is a montage of recordings made by me on an easy-to-set-up, inexpensive computer-based recording studio (and yes, all those voices are me – even the singing:)):

VoiceOver

The Newbies Guide To Audio Recording Awesomeness is a 2-part course - a series of tutorial videos that starts at the very beginning.

Part 1

In Part 1 you can start with no experience and spend no more than about 5 bucks on gear. All you need is a computer and a computer microphone. Even one of those plastic PC mics is fine at this point (that’s where the $5 comes in). You’ll be using free recording software called Audacity to learn the basics of audio recording.

This 9-lesson (17 total short but powerful videos) course is chock-full of incredible home recording tips.

You’ll learn how to do such awesome audio feats as:

  • Recording a voice-over and putting music behind it
  • Overdubbing for lush voices and vocal harmony
  • How to use and create loops
  • Basic multi-track production, audio editing, and more

Lessons in Newbies Guide 1 Include:

  • “Start Using the Recording Studio You Didn’t Know You Had!”
  • Lesson 1: Your First Recording
  • Lesson 2: It’s Recorded…Now What? – Editing Your Audio
  • Lesson 3: It’s Recorded…AND Edited…Now What? – Producing Your Audio
  • Lesson 4: What is an MP3? – How to create audio for the web
  • Lesson 5: Multi-Track Recording, (2 parts) – Learn the “Killer App” of audio recording, over-dubbing…otherwise known as “multi-track recording.” How to use the free recording software, Audacity, to make your 1st multi-track recording!
  • Lesson 5a: Singing Harmony With Yourself” Even if you’re not a “singer,” this is mind-goggling awesome! Be your own backing vocals, acapella group, doo-wop group, or even choir!
  • Lesson 5b: Vocal Doubling – How to double-your voice to get the sound so popular in hip-hop and pop recordings, as well as in radio ad TV ad voice-overs.
  • Lesson 6: Loops – Music for Non-Musicians
  • Lesson 7: Intro to FX – Equalization and Frequency
  • Lesson 8: EQ&FX pt2 – Using FX To Solve Audio Problems: Learn how to fix “P-pops” (also called “plosives”) using equalization (EQ).
  • Lesson 9: The Pros and Cons of the Zero-Five Dollar Budget – All previous lessons have been do-able on a “0-5 dollar” budget. That will be enough for 80-90 percent of you. Learn the limitations of that budget level, and how to level-up for about $50 per level!
Here are two sample videos from Part 1 (note: in order to demonstrate decent audio with a $5.00 studio, no expensive gear was used to record the videos. I recorded this tutorial with just a PC mic and on-board sound card):

Part 2

In Part 2, we raise things to a whole new level, taking you well into the realm of professional quality audio recording using the incredible software called Reaper, a professional audio recording program costing and insanely low price of $60! We’ll show you how to use the same techniques the pros use. You get 17 lessons taking you from the basics of creating a voice-over narration to recording an entire pop song.

    Hi Ken:...let me tell you that what I have learned from your videos in this short time was extraordinary. Your method of presentation and the way you teach is excellent. I was a teacher and educator. When I see a good teacher or listen to one, I know how good he/she is

  • One of the most interesting and well-paced tutorials I have seen

    I saw one of your clips on youtube and you offer one of the most interesting and well-paced tutorials I have seen, mixed with a bit of humor which makes learning enjoyable. I have been using Reaper for a while and I am always looking for tips not just on recording vocals but all-around multi-track recording.
