Next Week Is Home Recording Week on Soundfly!

We cover a lot of musical topics between the editorial content here on Flypaper, our weekly newsletter, our in-depth online courses, and our customized project-oriented mentorship sessions on Soundfly. Yet no matter what area of composition, production, performance, or business we’re talking about from one day to the next, we find that what links most modern musicians in their drive to learn more and expand their skills and opportunities today is the need to develop a better grasp on home recording.

Everyone records at home these days; being able to record adequately at home is self-empowering.

Whether you’re drafting demos for your next album, producing a 30-second spot for a video or beats for an electronic project, or actually tracking an entire album with your band in your living room, combining the comfort of your domestic space with business-like workflow habits and studio quality gear can lead to great results — so long as you don’t fall through one of the many trap doors inherent to this way of working.

It’s because of these trap doors (motivation, time management, confidence, workflow optimization, proper space and acoustic considerations, gear availabilities, etc.) that musicians with big ideas and significant dreams often fall short of reaching their true home recording potential. So we decided to make next week, June 17-22, 2019, all about that — next week is Home Recording Week on Soundfly.

Here’s what you can expect!

New articles

Between Monday and Friday, we’ll be posting new content pertaining to home recording and getting the most of our your time spent making music domestically. Follow our blog and sign up for our newsletter, to stay informed and read everything going live next week and beyond.

Pulling from the archives

On Flypaper and our social media channels, we’ll be sharing relevant posts that we’ve published over the years that shed light on various aspects of home recording, such as what I mentioned above. You can read some of these via the Home Recording Week tag and by following us on Facebook.

Quick lessons on Instagram

Exclusively on our Instagram account, we’ll be sharing videos and stories instructing some fun and modern aspects of home production. (By the way, we issue fun production and composition challenges every month, and follow them down the rabbit hole ourselves with you. Follow us to see what happens and join in!)

Join the conversation!

And here’s the best part: We want to hear from you, too! Join us in this open conversation and share your stories, share photos of your home studio, share your questions and answer others, all via the #homerecordingweek hashtag on whatever social media platform you prefer.

We’ll also be joined by our friends at Bandzoogle, TuneCore, and ReverbNation, and more, who will be posting content about home recording all week next week — all linked together in the same conversation with the hashtag #homerecordingweek.
