Home Studio Recording Session – A Closer Look

I decided a while back that I wanted to shoot a video of a full band recording session at my place. There are so many of us that want the best sounding recording possible, WITHOUT $100k worth recording gear. We just don’t have the budget.

There ARE however certain steps we can take to get us closer to that goal. Here’s how I tackle a full on session, with what I have.
