Course Description

Hey! My name is ODi Productions and I'm a professional Music Producer and Audio Engineer (read bio to learn more). This online course, in my humble opinion, is the ULTIMATE guide to home recording. Having been recording for close to 10 years now, I know exactly what beginner musicians need in order to get the sound that they're looking for.

So what makes this course different from any other?

First off, you're learning from a professional producer who has worked with a Platinum-selling artist, while other "instructors" are mostly hobbyists.

The videos in this course are high-quality and short and sweet. There's no need to watch 6 hours of boring videos in order to learn ALL of the proper fundamentals.

Aside from the videos, I'll be just a message or e-mail away to answer ANY and ALL of your individual questions. Think of me as your personal 1-on-1 coach for music recording :-)

This investment today will repay itself over and over again in your future. Guaranteed.

Let's start learning today!

What are the requirements?

  • You don't need to have any prior knowledge/experience with recording!
  • Lesson 1 will cover the basic equipment for a home studio (see below)
  • Optional: Microphone, Audio Interface, Headphones, Software

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Build your first HOME STUDIO on a budget! (With recommendations)

  • Learn the secret RECORDING TECHNIQUES that recording artists use to get the best quality out of their voice! Every time.

Who is the target audience?

  • This course teaches the RIGHT FUNDAMENTALS to home recording in a very easy-to-follow manner.
  • Complete BEGINNERS are more than welcome!
