Since today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day here in the US, I want to share a song and a story. I’m a white guy. I grew up in a small town in Mississippi. We were a squarely upper middle class family. While there’s technically no segregation in Mississippi, it’s still a ...

Yesterday I did something I didn’t want to do. See, was trying to come up with some new ideas for a series of videos to post on my YouTube channel. I couldn’t get this one idea out of my head. I mentioned it to Pam, and she thought it was a good idea. The only problem...

One of my buddies from college released an EP last year. His name is Seth Talley. I attended the release party at a cool studio in Franklin, where they recorded a few live acoustic versions of the songs with a bunch of folks gathered around. It was sweet. Being the dutiful...

When you run a blog about home recording for almost eight years, it’s easy to get away from the basics. But as any football coach or guitar teacher will tell you, fundamentals are crucial. Whether you’re new to recording and haven’t recorded a single note or you’ve...

Every year I like to reflect back on the year and see what lessons I learned. It’s helpful to look at the big picture sometimes, and it helps me look forward to next year. So…off we go: LESSONS I LEARNED IN 2016 2016 was an interesting year for me. Lots of great things...

Merry Day-After-Christmas! If you’re like me, your family never knows what to get you for Christmas. Oftentimes they just hand you a wad of cash and mumble something about music and Santa and merry something… If that’s you today, I’ve put together a fairly random but ...

I love a good challenge. I decided to take the last two weeks of the year off, and it’s been great. Lots of family time. And I’ve played a lot of Minecraft. (I know, I know…make fun of me if you like.) If you’re not familiar with the game, Minecraft is a simple world ...

This week I was late for the live stream, then the stream wouldn’t work, so I’m grumpy.
I’m re-watching the TV series/rockumentary Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways on Amazon. If you haven’t checked it out, you should. Each song on the album is based on a different city in the US, and they recorded each song in each of those cities. Each episode of the show is...

So much goes into making great mixes. Of course, you need good songs and good recordings, but once you start mixing a song, it’s easy to lose perspective. A second set of ears comes in handy. Big time. I’ve been running my VIP membership for years. One of the...

Last week I shared with you the first five reasons you’re not happy with your mixes. Today, let’s finish out the countdown. 5. You don’t have a good understanding of EQ and Compression. Early on in the history of Home Studio Corner, I decided to create two in-depth...

“I’m not happy with my mixes.” That should become the anthem of home studio owners everywhere. (I’m thinking it would sound a lot like AC/DC’s “TNT”. Something like, “My MIX – ES SUCK … They really do.”) Anyway…it’s a real struggle. As with anything...
