In this fully online crash course in pro recording techniques, Fett gives you step-by-step instructions on how to produce a truly professional-sounding recording, using a guitar-vocal for illustration. In addition to detailed recording topics, Fett also discusses layering and mixing considerations.
Whether you’ve never made a recording at all or have been recording for years, when you complete this course, you’ll have a completely new, fresh perspective on how professional recording engineers get big-sounding productions from just a guitar and a vocal.
In addition to specific gear recommendations, this course is chock-full of specific techniques for preparation, recording, layering, and mixing that you can use on your own recordings immediately.
And while this course uses a guitar-vocal recording as the example, many of the recording, layering, and mixing techniques presented can be applied to recordings of any instruments and vocals, from piano-vocals to full bands.
The course isn’t taught on specific dates. Instead, it is 100% on-demand and available at any time, from anywhere.
