Three songs from the home recording studio are presented in MP3 format with descriptions on how they were recorded (using guitars, synthesizers, mixers, effects devices, and synchronization of a computer sequencer, analog multitrack and digital multitracks).


Examples of songs recorded in the Home Recording Studio using guitars, drums, keyboards and microphones.

With today's affordable multitrack technology, one or two people can sound like a whole band. Here are some MP3 audio examples from JV's home studio along with descriptions of how the songs were made:


“Starman”

Audio mixing and recording equipment.This is a cover of a song from the 1972 album Ziggy Stardust (actually named The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars) by David Bowie. The Ziggy Stardust album was years (no, actually decades) ahead of its time. If you haven’t heard it, then you owe it to yourself to buy it and add it to your collection. It is simply a delightful album with great songwriting, excellent musicianship, and flawless production.

The DAW used on this recording was Sonar Producer Edition V8.5.3. It was recorded at a sampling rate of 48kHz in 24-bit audio. The audio interface used was an Emu-1820m.

“Tuesday Afternoon”

Audio mixing and recording equipment.This is a cover of a song from the 1968 album Days Of Future Passed by The Moody Blues. This was a concept album that reached gold record status by stringing together various rocks songs with classical orchestra interludes. Nights In White Satin and Tuesday Afternoon were the best known hits from this album. These could be the first tastes that people had of the Mellotron, since it was featured so prominently in The Moody Blues’ music.

The DAW used on this recording was Sonar Producer Edition V8.5.3. It was recorded at a sampling rate of 48kHz in 24-bit audio. The audio interface used was an Emu-1820m.
