Description

Gone are the days when recording an album required a large, expensive recording studio and piles of ultra hi-tech equipment. Lily Allen's myspace video netted her no.1 in the UK singles chart and an NME nomination, folk singer Seth Lakeman made an album in his kitchen for GBP300 and has been nominated for a Mercury Prize. And of course, there's the Arctic Monkeys - winners of a Mercury Prize, a Brit Award and two NME awards, who marketed their album through demo tapes and file sharing. Nicola Slade shows how anyone can record and mix killer music from the comfort of their bedroom. The author explains what hardware, software and mixing equipment is required, and includes a history of the digitisation of music, advice on marketing and promoting your music and contributions from DIY music artists who have made it big.show more
