I was recently interviewed by my good friend Joe Gilder ( for a new training product called Home Recording Tactics. My interview is just one of 9 total “sit downs” with pro audio engineers around the world giving advice and thoughts on making good music.

My portion was on the subject of recording on a budget. In this interview I talk about the importance of reducing variables in your signal chain and your gear choices in order to not only save money, but learn quicker and make better music. Take a listen to my interview right here and hopefully it will help you. If you like what you learned, then check out Home Recording Tactics and get access to the other 8 amazing interviews!
