ITP BUYERS GUIDE.pdf
Are you currently shopping for recording equipment?
If so, then you have just stumbled on a great opportunity that may save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars on recording equipment for your home, project, or even professional studio!
I have been recording and making records for over ten years. During that time, I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on recording equipment for my studio, and made a lot of costly mistakes.
If you're shopping for equipment for your home or project studio right now, you may have a lot of questions about how to go about choosing the best products. There are so many choices and so much information, much of which is contradictory. I know from personal experience how overwhelming it can be to try to make decisions about what to buy, and the pressure you feel that if you make a mistake, it will cost you time and money down the road.
"If you make a mistake, it will cost you time and money down the road."
Well folks, I have some good news and some bad news. If you are just starting to build your recording studio, you WILL make mistakes. There is almost now way for a beginner to choose the right equipment, because he or she is just not informed enough to make good decisions. Experience is the most powerful ally you can have when making purchasing decisions, and if you're just starting out, you don't have any. The good news is that I've already made the mistakes so you don't have to!
When I started making records over ten years ago, the only affordable way to record was using a four-track cassette machine. Nowadays, there are a dizzying array of options. How do you know what to buy? In this Adobe pdf guide, I will answer that question and many more.
As I mentioned earlier, over the past ten years I have spent thousands of dollars on recording and other musical equipment. After making some big mistakes early on, I decided to start meticulously researching ever purchase I made. I've spent countless hours reading user product reviews in online forums and websites. In addition, I've consulted with professional recording engineers who make their living making records. All of this knowledge, plus my own experience as an award-winning singer-songwriter, sponsored guitarist, paid studio musician, and owner of a professional sound-design company, In the Pocket, Inc., has gone into writing this eBook.
