I’ve been slowly building up my home studio over the years. I’ve purchased speakers, monitors, televisions, computer parts, keyboards, interfaces… all that fun stuff. However when it comes to some things, I look at the price and just get angry. Continue reading “Building an Acoustic Diffuser”
One of the things I’ve had almost no experience in until this year is onboard vehicle recording.
