Let me introduce myself at the risk of sounding like the guy at the beginning of a "how-to" guide. My name is Alan Lawson, and I am just a simple writer that would like to help you get started with your home recording adventures. My goal here is to provide more insight than what some guides might offer for you to find out what resources I recommend without having me dig through your Google search history.

4 Home Recording Tips and Tricks
1. Consider Using A Flexible Microphone

It is a prevalent question among home-recording experts, and I tend to lean towards using microphones that can easily be adjusted. I've been wary of the USB option for a long time, and although they are on the rise in popularity, I always know that I should get that condenser microphone. I've seen it all over the place, but even as a kid, my favourite microphone was the one that could easily be adjusted so it could point directly at what it needed to pick up better.

2. Consider A Noisy Environment

I know you want to be able to make music in the comfort of your own home, but sometimes a bedroom isn't the best option for recording! If noise is going to be an issue, you might want to look at moving to another room for recording or maybe even blocking off a few rooms altogether if it's just too loud! The best way to deal with this is by researching noise levels or asking people who have used home recording equipment in their home environment. If you are in a dorm, there is probably a good chance someone else will use their bedroom for some recording.

3. Find Out How Loud You Can Record Music

It is something that I am sure you have heard a lot about, but where do you start? Start by asking around and seeing if anyone has used music recording software or if they knew of any good places to record music. As I mentioned above, you should have friends and acquaintances on your side regarding home recording. If you can get to the bottom of this problem, then there is a good chance that you will be able to find a way for your music to be recorded without having to worry about damaging the sound that it produces.

4. Play With Your Music Software

It is an important thing to remember when learning how to use audio software. I don't know about you, but I enjoy playing with the different aspects of these programs too! For instance, if you like all kinds of music production, you might want to choose something budget-friendly or free. However, if you don't want to spend money on a cheap music-making program, you should consider getting something like GarageBand. 

Hopefully, this article will be the first step in helping you get started with your home recording adventures. If you make sure that your home recording space is not too loud or that you are using a flexible microphone, then there is no reason why you can't get started with simple equipment.
