Tips For Better Productions In Your Home Studio

Anyone could say that in a home studio you can’t get a professional-quality sound. This is a huge lie.

However, there are certain key pieces that one must follow if one really wants to achieve an outstanding sound.

That’s why in this article I will give you tips for better productions that I want you to apply from today … And here they go.

  1. Start by having good songs

Uff… How pleasant it is to listen to a good song. And even better, when production complements it 100% to make it even better.

But what if it is NOT a good song?

So even if a million-dollar production is paid at Abbey Road Studios, it won’t be a pleasant song to listen to. Why? Because, simply, the composition is NOT good.

One of the producer’s jobs is, to be honest, and really evaluate when a song has potential or not. It is better, to be honest with the artist and, if your song is not so good, look for an alternative.

  1. Preproduction Is A Key Part

Well, they say … If you fail to prepare, then prepare to fail.

Planning within production is simply EVERYTHING.

It is very important that, before starting the recording, you have a clear idea about what is going to be done in the song. Some of these things are …

  • What style will be given to the song?
  • What instrumentation is going to be used?
  • What musicians will participate?
  • What arrangements or direction will be given to the song?

Among others. I assure you that if you plan in the best way, everything will be more efficient and the creative process will flow excellent.

  1. Everything starts from the source

This is something I repeat, and I never tire of repeating, since it is most important in a production.

If from the beginning we have a quality recording, the entire production, mixing and mastering process will be much better.

NEVER, but NEVER leave something recorded that you did not like and much less think “I’ll fix it later in the mix” because these kinds of things are the ones that are dirtying the song little by little.

If from the beginning you focus on having a quality recording, then the mix will simply be to balance and beautify the sound, not to correct it.

  1. Think about your future arrangements

Part of preproduction is thinking about the arrangements, but I want to go a little deeper.

One of the most common mistakes is that people finish recording all the essential parts, and THEN they start thinking about what arrangements the song will have.

This is a tremendous mistake because it greatly limits our creative potential.

Why? Because often the arrangements have to go hand in hand with the recording of the instruments themselves, through pauses, the way of playing the instrument, natural intensities, etc.

The arrangements are thought from BEFORE recording, not until the end of the recording. That you stay well recorded and I assure you that your creativity will flow.

That the instruments and sections ADAPT to your arrangements and not vice versa, this will make your production much more creative.

Choosing The Right Home Removal Company

Hiring a home removal firm can make moving a house much easier.  However, if you choose the wrong company, you could end up making your life much harder.  If you have never hired a home removal company before, there are a few steps you should take to ensure that you work with the right company for your needs.

Know What You Need

Before you start looking for a removal company or trying to get estimates, you need to know what you need from the company.  There are some people who want a removal company that simply picks up their boxes and furniture to move to their new property.  However, there are other people who will want a removal company that packs everything for them. 

You need to determine what services you need from the company.  You also need to think about what you are going to be moving and if there are any special items that you need to take into account.  The more detail you have on what you need, the easier it will be to find the right removal company for your needs. If you are packing yourself you can find some tips here.

Look For A Local Company

Once you know what you want from the removal company, you can start to look at the different companies.  Ideally, you will want to hire a company that is local to you.  This will actually make the move easier as you can contact them with ease and, if you need to have a home inspection completed, arranging this will be faster. 

If you are going to be moving long-distance, you will need to ensure that the company offers this.  There are many local moving companies that will only move your items within a set geographical area.  You need to be aware of this because it will help you narrow down the companies that you can work with.

Get A Number Of Quotes

Once you have a short-list of potential removal companies, you need to get quotes from them.  Ideally, you will want to have a house inspection done by the company as this will provide the best quotes.  An online survey where you tell the company what you have could provide you with an incorrect quote and you might leave something out.

After getting the quotes from different companies, you will need to compare them.  It is vital that you compare like with like as this is the only way to make an informed decision.  You also need to look past the total price of the quote because working on price alone can cause a lot of issues.

You need to see what service is actually provided as well as the insurance that you will get.  You should never work with a removal company that is not insured because this can cause major problems.  You also need to check if you are getting curb-side removals or if the removal company will be taking the items into your new home.  Many people do not check this and end up having to move the boxes and furniture into their new home themselves.

There are many times that people get careless in there move and either throw away or leave valuable clothes, furniture, books etc that could go to a better cause then your garbage. There are also some local donation stores that if your donation is large enough they will actually come and pick it up.

The last tip that we will be sharing in this short article is to keep all valuable documents with you. If you are hiring a mover then this is a vital part of any move. Although the company may be trustworthy you should never leave important documents in the site of others. Keeping the documents with yourself also ensures that you will not lose anything in the move. With these tips, I hope that your move goes a lot smoother then you expected. Just remember to follow these basic tips and always try to relax.

Tips To Avoid Being Scammed By Moving Companies

Scams are the order of the day, thanks to the wonderful anonymity afforded by the Internet! Since they can remain unseen, plenty of con artists have utilized the World Web to create multiple identities, cook up fake addresses and contact information, and display phony details of non-existent companies and personnel employed therein. Why, even testimonials concerning customer satisfaction cannot be depended upon at times!

The latest to join the bandwagon are moving services. And mind you, they have perfected their art over time. Take note of the following three profiles of scam that are in vogue today, and protect your belongings!

(1) It is possible that with a hectic schedule, you do not find time to make personal visits to moving companies or even have detailed personal conversations with them. So you decide to engage a BROKER. This middleman’s main job is to take over on your behalf, thus saving you time and money.

So far, so good—for there are plenty of trustworthy moving brokers around. The problem arises when you unfortunately connect to that one rotten apple among the good apples in the basket! This type of “greedy” broker will have a network of affiliate moving companies on the side; and they may not be very genuine in their services. Of course, they are grateful to get customers and do pay a hefty commission for all the leads that the broker supplies. But somewhere on the way, your household goods can suffer damages or be lost, or there could even be unnatural delay in delivery. It hurts because you have paid for the broker’s services as well as the services of the moving company. Can you even remotely imagine recovering your losses?

And don’t worry about the broker—he is laughing all the way to the bank!

(2) Are you impressed by a particular moving company’s website? Look at the professional layout, the detailed information and links provided, and the testimonials from satisfied customers! But are you sure you are dealing with a genuine moving company, or are you being fooled by a broker who has set up the whole thing for his own nefarious purposes? It could be a case of MISTAKEN IDENTITY!

So, how does this person work? There will be plenty of “sweet talk” online (you have no clue as to who you are talking to) from this supposed customer service representative—collection of an advance fee—and referrals to an affiliate moving company that offers reduced rates. Who is the ultimate beneficiary? The owner of the website, for he/she walks away with a large percentage of the transaction!

(3) Who does not want low-priced quotes in these times of recession? While making a comparison of the estimates provided by different moving companies, have you chanced upon this particular one which offers attractive discounts? Naturally, you end up signing on the dotted line (probably without even perusing the written matter thoroughly and not understanding the messages hidden between the lines), for you feel that you are getting a good bargain! Who will provide moving and storage at such reasonable rates?

But the truth of the matter will hit you when the company sends over its van for transporting your household belongings. Your stuff will be loaded, but you will have to pay some extra charges. If you argue and refuse to pay up, they will take away your loaded goods and lock them up. Unless the stated amount is handed over, you will never see your things again. Thus, your stuff is being held HOSTAGE!

Top Things You Must Do Before Your Office Movers Come
