Home Recording


And once you’re ready to share your talents with the world, why not put your tracks to tape and start uploading them to Soundcloud? Time was demoing at home produced dubious results whereas now there’s some awesome apps that can create a bedroom studio which are so good you can record a highly polished album ready to sell. Check out Garageband, Fruity Loops and Beatwave 3 to get started on just your smartphone or tablet.

Mike Skinner famously recorded The Streets debut album ‘Original Pirate Material’ on his laptop to break the Top 10 and become a leading light in UK garage and hip hop. Other awesome home recorded albums include M.I.A.’s devastating record ‘Maya’, Iron & Wine’s beautiful debut LP ‘The Creek Drank The Cradle’ and 2010 Gorillaz album ‘The Fall’ was entirely produced on an iPad – even Bruce Springsteen’s stark masterpiece ‘Nebraska’ was put to tape at home using just a 4-track recorder.
