Recroding music in a tiny space has never been easier.
You know what beats out a great-sounding A/D converter? A great-sounding vocalist, musician, or song.
You know what’s beter than going into a bunch of debt buying a bunch of hardware and software for your recording? Buying the minimal amount of gear and learning how to stretch that gear ot the limits, using every single feature/knob/contol/button on the gear/software.
I know there are problems with quantifying the positive impact music education has on students (not like there’s a standardized test for this kind of thing), but there’s increasing data to suggest that music education impacts the learning skills & communication abilities of school-age kids.
It’s not hard to get students interested in recording music, either. One of the biggest impediments (in my opinion) is resistance from the educators in charge. Let’s change that.
