How to Record Yourself and Not Hate It (blog)

A couple days ago I started responding to a post about home recording here on SOTW and realized that my response was getting long... VERY long. Also, it occurred to me that I've been giving similar advice to many of my friends who are brilliant musicians but know next to nothing about recording. Because of the pandemic, they're being forced to adapt, like I mentioned in the article I wrote for EarthQuaker Devices recently. So I thought it would be worth turning it into a blog post to go into more detail about how to really get started with professional recordings at home.

Here's the blog post. I hope it helps some folks out!

I agree.... it is very difficult to like it. Especially when somebody recorded me with its mobile phone and showed it to me..... In my experience we must understand that the saxophone (and almost any other instrument) has many frequencies that we hear that are not captured properly by some mics.

It took me many years also to like what I record without modifying it by the console or something similar. Still today I play and play to find what differences can I make to like a little more what I play.

I am happy know with the recordings made while I play.
