Are You Lost In A Sea Of Home Studio Confusion? Are You Losing Motivation To Stick It Out?

It's Time To Take Back Your Studio!

The home studio revolution.

We are all a part of it, for better or worse. Gear is crazy affordable compared to 20 years ago and more music is being made in bedrooms and basements across the globe than ever before.

The power of the modern DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) has allowed so many unknown artists to share their great talent with the world.

And yet, so many of you are fed up and frustrated. You are tired of trying to get great sounding recordings and mixes in your home studios. Some of you have given up hope completely, never to record again. How do I know? Because you (or people like you) email me about it every single day.

The Common Frustrations

After reading tens of thousands of these emails over the past few years I’ve noticed some common frustrations that are shared by home and project studio owners all over the planet. Maybe you’ve felt some of these yourself.

  • “My recordings sound flat and lack punch…”
  • “Mixing takes forever…”
  • “My final tracks lack the clarity and polish of professional mixes…”
  • “I’m afraid my gear is holding me back, but I don’t know where to invest my money…”
  • “I’m not getting the sounds I hear in my head, and I simply don’t know what to change…”

It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way

These types of emails sadden me. Why? Because it doesn’t have to be this way! Creating music in your home studio (whether your music or for a client) should be FUN! Otherwise, why are we doing it? Clearly it’s not for the money…

As the founder and author of The Recording Revolution, one of my missions is to encourage and motivate a generation of audio engineers to pursue their craft with passion and excellence. I try to write articles and shoot videos that not only teach, but build you up and fuel you to make better music.

But sometimes an article or video just isn’t enough.

A World Wide Web Event

So I figured, why not do something crazy? Why not host a live world wide web event where people from all over the globe can come and hear some solid teaching on all things home studio, get their questions answered, and get straight pumped up to go make killer music in their studios?!

Welcome to Take Back Your Studio, a live, three hour, limited engagement hosted by me, Graham Cochrane of The Recording Revolution.

Take Back Your Studio is going to be an action packed afternoon of training, encouragement, and fun. During our time together I’ll be covering three critical areas of the home studio experience: recording, mixing, and gear. Here are just a few of the things we’ll be going over…

  • My favorite hacks for getting a great recording in a not so great space
  • How to set up your preamps and audio interfaces for sonic success when recording to digital
  • How I boil the mixing process down into three simple phases
  • How to better match your mixes with those of the pros
  • The truth about converters, preamps, plugins, and anything else you might be thinking of upgrading in your studio

Ask Whatever You Wish

Since Take Back Your Studio is a live event that you’ll attend (virtually of course), I can take time to listen to YOUR questions and answer them. In fact, for each of the three main areas of discussion (recording, mixing, and gear) there will be a dedicated Q&A time where you can ask whatever is on your heart at the moment and I’ll do my best to answer.

I know that all of us have unique challenges and issues in our studios and this format will allow for more personalized and user directed training, as opposed to my videos and articles. And if your question doesn’t get answered during the live event due to time constraints, you will still get a chance to submit your question after the event through an exclusive Take Back Your Studio attendee portal. Don’t worry, I’ll explain it all when we get there!

A Chance To Win Free Gear

Not only are you going to get so much valuable and helpful content during this event, but you’ll have a chance to win some killer free gear from our sponsors. I was blessed to have three of my favorite pro audio companies donate some awesome stuff to giveaway at the Take Back Your Studio event. I have a stash of great gear from Avid, PreSonus, and Slate Digital just waiting to be handed out to you all!

Everyone who attends the event will be entered into the drawing. And throughout the course of the event I’ll be randomly drawing names and hooking people up with hundreds of dollars worth of free stuff. How awesome is that?!

Put It In Your Calendar

So here’s the deal. The Take Back Your Studio live event will be happening on Saturday June 15th, from 12:00PM to 3:00PM EST. That’s New York City time if you’re looking on a timezone map.

Now I am very aware that I have readers and viewers in over 44 countries around the globe so this time won’t be convenient for everyone. But fear not, every person who signs up for the event will receive a complete video download after it’s all done. You won’t miss a thing!

In fact, even if you can only make the event for an hour or two, but have to jet in the middle of things – no problem. The full event will be sent to your inbox so you can catch up on what you missed. And of course even if you make the entire event, you too will get a video download to keep and reference forever!

Space Is Limited

Take Back Your Studio is a live event, and like most events there is a limited number of “seats.” I’ve set things up to accomodate as many people as I possibly can but spots are definitely limited so I’m offering them on a first come, first serve basis. Even if you’re not 100% sure you can make the event that day, sign up now to guarantee a spot AND to ensure you receive a recording of the whole thing as this event will not be available for sale after the fact.

Free Bonus Video…

File-Video-iconJust for signing up to attend the Take Back Your Studio live event I want to give you an exclusive bonus video tutorial I’ve put together called The Smart Start To Mixing.

In this video I walk you through my exact work flow for starting your mix on the right foot. Before you even grab a plugin and begin dialing settings, there are a few key things you need to do to set your mix up for sonic success. In The Smart Start To Mixing you’ll learn about:

  • Sweet spots (How to make all your plugins sound their absolute best)
  • Mixing shortcuts (Speed up mixing with a template based approach)
  • Gut mixing (How I capture the essence of a mix before I even start)

The Smart Start To Mixing tutorial shows you exactly what to do every time you start a mix. I don’t offer this video anywhere else people, so grab it while you can!
