About the Podcast

Having cut our teeth recording in bedrooms and friends’ basements, we’ve traveled quite a bit in our own recording journeys. We’ve learned a lot. We still have a lot to learn.
Through our experiences we’ve realized something very important:
With minimal gear and just a bit of knowledge, DIY musicians everywhere can get professional quality recordings in their homes and rehearsal spaces. 
Our mission is to provide that bit of knowledge. 
Join us.
