Here’s a quick look at 3 different posts for beginners who are trying to get into audio production. I assure you, this list will grow with the blog in time. These guides are a primer for future posts that will reach deeper into other branches of audio.
f you’re here, then you probably love music. That’s actually a really important first step because if you don’t know how to appreciate the craft, you probably won’t enjoy music production. Being an effective audio engineer and/or producer depends partly on the ability to translate musical and technical concepts interchangeably. It’s all about maintaining a solid appreciation for music while remaining in a constant state of learning inside and outside of the studio. If you can’t stomach it, then it might not be for you.
Then again, who am I to judge? You don’t need to know everything about music, but you need to know something and be willing to build upon it. Look at it this way: Everything you learn now will make you a better engineer/producer in the long run.
