  • Multi-track Recording- Method used to record multiple sound sources on one piece of equipment. These multi-trackers can produce up to 24 separate audios at one time.

You have the option of building and utilizing your own home studio or you can take advantage of the many capabilities of a professional facility. Setting up in your house doesn’t require as much space as you might think. Some people have areas set up in their attics, basements or an extra room of their house. There’s a variety of easy to use software available for amateurs as well. These programs make recording vocal tracks a breeze. It is no longer necessary to have a big label footing the bill or calling the shots on your music. You can have voice and artistic control. You may opt to go a more professional route for your material. It depends on your budget and needs. Using an established company with years of experience has it’s advantages. You can use one of their in-house engineers who will be able to produce the best sound possible out of your equipment and your voice. These companies will have state-of-the-art microphones and speakers on hand to produce great audio. They may even be able to help you with your post production needs.
