The course has over 6 hours of premium hands-on training to help you master your home recording studio. Hosted by David Wills (Engineer/Consultant with Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Phil Collins), this is the one-stop training on a home recording that you've been looking for.

Basically, if you've ever wanted to have David spend the weekend at your house and teach you everything he has learned from working over 25 years with the best names in the business, this is your ticket to that experience.

Whether you use a software solution like Pro Tools, Cubase, Logic or Reason, or a hardware multitrack recorder, this massive library of training tutorials takes you from novice to expert.

All of our product-specific training DVDs center on what buttons to press and what screens to navigate, but this set was developed to teach you the unchanging principles of recording, mixing, and mastering your songs.

There simply is no other training product like this that takes you through the entire home recording process in such a complete way.

Who should take this course?

This course is our top of the line training for the recording musician, audio engineer, or music producer.
