My guest today is Joe Gilder. He is songwriter, producer, engineer, teacher and innovator in the online world of music production, blogging, and podcasting. Joe’s focus is the home studio owner, to help you create the best recordings you can. He has created a fantastic resource and website called HomeStudioCorner.com

 

In his own words:

“Home Studio Corner (HSC) exists to help home studios excel. It gives you LOTS of ways to expand your recording knowledge, hone your recording skills, and make better recordings.”

 

Joe offers articles, videos, podcasts, and training products so that you can start learning for free now and dive in for much more in depth training when you are ready.

 

Here are some of the topics we discussed on the show.

 

Dueling Mixes:

  • Dueling Mixes is for users who are comfortable with their DAW and want to go deeper into what the program can do. The site offers alternate mixes of the same song so the user can compare the two and see how different a single track can be mixed. They can also download the original track to mix the song themselves. Joe and his co-host Graham Cochrane create videos on how they mix the songs to give you insights into the process.

 

“Home Studio Corner” & “Simply Recording” Podcast:

  • Joe talks about the production of one of his albums from 2010. He brings up the 80/20 rule which states 80% of your results comes from 20% of the inputs given. He talked about how he was going to write 50 songs in 12 weeks to create at least 10 that he was proud of.

 

Predicting The Cost of a Record:

  • Joe talks about how to plan out how long and how much time it will cost to complete a record. This goes back to knowing how long it takes you to accomplish something in order to accurately predict how long the process will take. Joe talks about the value of salesmanship when quoting a client on how much his services will cost.
