220: Why “DIY-Recording” Doesn’t Work (And Most DIY-Productions Suck) – Back To Basics Mini Series Part I

This is part one of our "Back To Basics" Mini Series.

We're doing this because we believe that we need to be reminded more than we need to be taught.

And also because most self-recording musicians we talk to, even the more experiences ones, still ignore some of the super important basics. And by doing that, they are self-sabotaging. Holding themselves back from making truly exciting records.

So here's part I:

We thought about the term "DIY-Recording" quite a bit and we think it is misleading.

It doesn't work. At least not the way that many people think it does.

Most self-recording artists / bands are actually doing themselves a disservice by DIY-ing everything.

And we know this sounds weird for a podcast that teaches you how to do exactly that. The thing is, so many people have a wrong understanding of the record-making process and completely wrong expectations when it comes to this stuff.

So we think this is an important message and it's time for some real talk, telling you the truth here.

In this episode we're asking each other a few very interesting questions. A little thought experiment.

Then we show you the different ways you can approach your next (DIY-)record. And what to realistically expect from each.
