I know, the web needs more “how-to” videos like I need another hole in my head, but in 2008/2009 my pals at Signature Sound ask me to do a series of instructional web movies for their site. The concept being to create something much more professional, informative and valuable than your everyday YouTube fare.
All in all, I think they turned out pretty good, and are really informative. The info isn’t all-inclusive or extremely advanced, but I cover some of the basic “guidelines” I like to be mindful of when making a record.
NOTE: Care was paid to sound quality during production, so I suggest you view in HD and listen on either some good headphones or monitors.
