Slipperman’s Guide To Recording Metal Guitars

I’d like to share a somewhat old, but infinitely valuable guide to recording guitars. It’s been floating around the web for quite a while now, and it’s quite a lengthy read. However, it makes for great reading if you’ve got the time. It covers a wide range of topics, including audio engineering philosophy, amp/speaker/mic choice, acoustics, effects, mixing, and everything in between. It is written with a unique style incorporating a lot of wit and humor, and it never seems dry or boring. Check it out!

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.
