As some of you probably know, I’m currently in the hospital because my son Blake was just born on Sunday night! Mommy and baby are both doing well and are resting next to me as I write this.

You may also know that I’ve written an album for Blake, and I released it right after he’s born. If you’re interested in that, check it out here.

But that’s not what this post is about. I’m going to keep it short today, but I want to tell you about a resource  I’ve found that has REALLY helped improve my home recording skills over the past few years. And I really think it can help you if one of your goals is to record an album on your own and release it to the world.

The Recording Revolution

As I’ve mentioned before, there are SO many pieces to being an independent musician. There’s songwriting, recording, promoting, business, and all kinds of other stuff that we have to be in charge of. That’s why I love following people who focus on teaching just one of those pieces in great detail. One of my favorite guys to follow is Graham Cochrane, from The Recording Revolution.

Graham is all about empowering people to make great sounding recordings from minimal gear in less than ideal spaces (like spare bedrooms). Which is exactly what a lot of us want to do, right? His website is full of practical advice and tips that you can start applying to your recordings and your mixes. Personally, I’ve learned so much from Graham and I absolutely love his approach.

So sign up for his newsletter, and browse through his website. There’s some great stuff there.

I’d also recommend that you subscribe to his YouTube channel. This month Graham is posting a mixing tip video every day. They’re each only about five minutes long, but I guarantee that if you follow along you’ll learn some great new tricks and techniques and your recordings will start sounding even better.

Anyways, that’s it for today! I’m gonna go hang out with my new baby. :) Go check out Graham’s site and let me know in the comments what new recording/mixing tips you learned!

    I’d also recommend homestudiocorner.com as well. Joe Gilder (who runs Home Studio Corner) and Graham Cochrane (The Recording Revolution) are practically online best friends and even run a separate podcast/program http://simplyrecordingpodcast.com together.

    Congratulations to you two, and welcome to Blake!
    Graham’s is really cool! You know what, when I watched some of the videos you made about mixing (in the 15 videos you made to answer questions), I was pretty sure that you went to “Graham’s school”. I’ve been following him for a while now and I have learn A LOT.

    yep love the RR. i even bought graham’s rethinking mixing video series. about half way through it and it’s actually been hugely educational. the crap i’m learning in that i would have never thought (like mixing in mono, i had knew that it was good to check mono for phasing, but to actually mix in mono, damn, pretty brilliant)

  • Brandon Li

    I love Graham’s series! They’re so simple yet amazing! Congratulations on a new joy!

      No problem Graham! Thank YOU for everything you’re doing. I’ve seriously learned so much!

    Wow, thank you so much for sharing this. There is SO much content, I’ve been spending most of my time sitting and learning instead of USING the ideas to improve my recordings. Andy, you’re the bees knees. Graham, your the bees knees KNEES.

    I thought i was decent at mixing/recording until i started following Graham. Then i realized how much I DIDN’T know. Over the last two years my skills in the studio have increased exponentially. And at very little cost financially. So thanks Graham! Everyone remember to help support TheRecordingRevolution by purchasing his videos and tutorials. The price/value ratio is unbeatable.
