Home Recording Essentials

Our Production and Performance tutor Craig Lowe talks us through the essential kit you'll need to start recording your music from home.

Craig has got it covered; in this video, he tells you all about the equipment he personally uses in his home studio, including his preferred microphone, MIDI controller, and audio interface.

But there's more...

As you’re passionate about music production, and we currently all have extra time to focus on our goals, you can now book a 15-minute video call with the Programme Leader for the Cert HE Creative Music Production.
