What is Home Studio Connection?
Home Studio Connection is a so called hub where home studio owners and pro studio’s can connect. We bring the worlds of both home studio owners and pro studio’s together by bridging them through learning and mentoring.

We also find it important to make our products accessible to a large audience, so anyone can benefit.
What does mentorship mean?
First of all: Does mentorship work? Absolutely, it does!
Effective mentoring comes from two directions. It is the symbiosis between the mentor and mentee.
Sylvia Massey put it this way: “People who love production and relentlessly work towards their dreams have a good chance of turning it into a rewarding lifestyle”.
With mentoring you built confidence based on professional and objective feedback. A mentor helps you enhancing your workflow, answers questions and support you in developing your own style and reaching your goals. And above all, mentoring is very personal!
How can a Mix Critique help me develop?
When recording and mixing at home, you probably do it in a non ideal spare room. Apart from the fact that the room itself can play tricks on you, your own judgement can have flaws too. After hours of mixing, adjusting faders, inserting plugins and working on effects, it is very common to lose track. Having a professional producer at hand is like the ultimate reference experience. You will know if your mix translates outside of your home studio. And an extra pair of trained ears will provide you with invaluable feedback. With that feedback you will be able to reconsider your work and compare the feedback to what you actually hear in your home studio. To learn how to listen and apply that skill to your mixes, will be your profit!
