Great Recording Engineers Who Record From Home
Quite a few of my favorite recording engineers put out extremely high quality material from their home studios. Some of these individuals have now fallen into awesome opportunities to record in commercial studios, but what they all have in common is their ability to create incredible sounding recordings on budget gear (and likely less than ideal room acoustics). These engineers prove that you don’t have to spend a ton to make high quality recordings. Kick back and take a listen.
Ah, the comfort of a home studio!
Fred is a multi-instrumentalist from London who also transcribes music in the form of guitar tablature. He’s an amazing musician and has fantastic recording skills.
Clocks is the work of Tim Hewitt. He’s most widely known for his “djent” metal remixes of popular Katy Perry songs. Gimmick or not, there’s no denying that he can take something you’d never expect and make it sound great.
Keshav Dhar is not only an incredible recording engineer, he’s a ridiculously good musician, as well. This song is by his band, Skyharbor.
Exafro is a home recordist and awesome guitarist from New York. His productions usually have a dark, natural vibe that I’m a big fan of. He also writes some of the catchiest metal guitar riffs I’ve ever heard.
Adam “Nolly” Getgood:
Nolly is one of the most talented people on the face of the earth. Aside from being one of the best guitarists on the planet, he also produces some of the best sounding stuff I’ve ever heard…and he does it from home. He’s great at many styles of rock, but he’s got a knack for making metal sound absolutely gigantic.
Morgan, known as Valtiel, is a very creative musician who demos a lot of gear from home and manages to make everything always sound great.
These are just a handful of some of the awesome engineers out there who prove you can do more with less. You don’t have to spend a fortune on gear to make great recordings.
