My name is Udi Koomran
I am a music enthusiast sound engineer & producer
from Tel Aviv, Israel. Recording mixing and mastering
original and challenging music
is my passion.
For over a decade the technology of faster more powerful and
affordable computers, larger storage capacities and wider bandwidth
has radically changed the way music is being recorded produced
and shared. More and more musicians are recording music in their
home studio using digital audio workstations/programs and it no
longer takes a lot of money and gear to achieve high standard
results. The methods and practice of collaborating and sharing
digital audio between artists sound engineers producers and labels
are constantly changing and challenging us.
From my personal experience of working with artists and labels from
around the world for over a decade, I grew to understand the musician’s
need of knowledge in working with digital audio in a home studio.
In the following pages I will try and share with you fellow musicians
what I personally regard are the basic guidelines and key points
that are necessary for making a successful home recording project
Planing and preparing your sessions
The recording chain and the importance of each link
Setting the fundamental parameters for tracking and recording
Tips for collaborating and sharing your tracks and session
Post recording tasks
Necessary details for submitting your tracks for mixing
Following this guide will hopefully eliminate undesirable scenarios
like wrong sessions, missing files, synchronization issues etc.
And ensure we make the most of our time in the studio to make
the music sound great.
I plan to continue and add more chapters
on how to submit your mixes for mastering and share some recording
and mixing tips.
