Why We Are Here
"We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves" ~Galileo~
Home Studio Connection is an initiative of Bert Boerma, musician and home studio enthusiast. Bert experienced first hand the huge impact a mix critique had on his mixing skills. Being a self-taught mix engineer learning mostly by trial and error and by watching hours and hours of YouTube video’s on the subject, the experience of growth while having real interaction with a pro was an enormous eye-opener!
A lot has changed in the music industry in the last 2 decades. Much of it in favor of home studio enthusiasts. The sky is almost literally the limit! DAW software is getting better every day. And what about samples, virtual instruments, plugins and loads of affordable hardware? The only possible limit however is your own ability to familiarize yourself with the tools you work with. The technical aspect is one side of the mixing spectrum. The other side is to learn how to really listen and to develop your own color that will set you apart in the industry.
The professional studio’s on the other hand, saw clientele decrease in the last 2 decades because of the upcoming home studio market. Lots of studio’s closed their doors forever. The ones still in business apparently did something very well. They developed and kept up with time. Furthermore, they have proven skills that are hard to learn from books or video’s.
One And One Is Three
The concept of synergy is that the creation of a whole is greater than the simple sum of its parts. So when we eventually bridged the gap between the worlds of both home- and pro studio’s, something magical happened. Want to know what we are talking about? Just jump aboard and become a part of a new musical world and be prepared to get your skills rocked!!
