Roots Music Canada presents Home Recording 101
Aimed at songwriters with little or no home recording experience, this 3-hour workshop will introduce you to the skills and techniques you'll need to capture your songs and turn them into polished tracks.
Through demos and hands-on experience, you'll learn:
- the fundamentals of multitrack software: recording, editing, and mixing
- basic microphone choice and technique, for voice and instruments
- the sonic value of your closet (or, how to make the most of a small recording budget)
The tool we'll use is Audacity, a free and open-source multitrack editor. However, the focus is on principles and techniques, not tools. The concepts presented will be easily transferable to many other multitrack editing programs, like Garageband, Audition, Logic, Pro Tools, etc.
No recording experience or expertise required. This is a workshop for novices. You're welcome to bring a laptop with you, but it's not necessary.
We will use an overhead projector to present basic concepts you can learn and take home with you.
The pub is providing us our own room and server for the event. There will be lunch break and you'll have the option to purchase food from their menu.
Accounting for lunch break, we should be done by 4 PM.
