“To become a singer requires work, work, and again, work!” – Enrico Caruso
Gene Kelly’s global classic “Singing in the Rain” is without a doubt a product of this lesson and there are far too many other hard-working and talented singers to mention.
How many of you occasionally (or always in my case) sing in the shower? Do you dream of becoming a famous singer? Where do you begin?
The first step is to record yourself and see how you sound. However, it’s almost impossible to turn your bathroom into an Italian opera house without a lot of money and tonnes of pro tools. You’re not a professional musician, after all, and you don’t have a myriad of assistants and record executives to help you do it.
Someone who sings alone is barely a singer at all. In order to exist, a singer has to produce music. Whether this takes place in a concert hall or a more intimate venue, they should have recordings in order to show off their music.
There are plenty of artists who made it big because somebody important came across their demo. There are also a number of people who’ve become very popular following some buzz on YouTube or social media.
While you don’t have to share your recordings all over the world wide web, it’s important to have some recordings of your voice (if you want to become a singer) in order to share them to the right people at the right times.
It’s also useful to have recordings in order to train yourself to sing better so you can see where you’re going wrong.
If you want to make a digital audio recording, you’re going to need to get some mics, recording equipment, recording software, and turn your guest room into a home recording studio.
With that said, let’s have a look at the best ways to make quality recordings from the comfort of your own home. Recording music needn’t cost that much.
