Home Recording Guru - The Recording Process

Part 2 of a 3 part series about the home recording process. In part one I outlined the basic gear needed for producing music at home. In this second article we discuss the process of recording. What kind of signals we strive to capture on tape or disk. How we use the different kinds of microphones in our mic closet. What happens along each stage of the signal chain and how to care for the signal as it travels from the musical instrument and through the gear. I also discuss what to watch out for so your signals don't get damaged on their way to being recorded.

You could ride it with a handle attached or without one. Before the Skeeter Skate, a few other things came out resembling skateboards, but they never had steering; you could only go straight on them.
