What is a DAW? What do they do and why is it handy to have someone in your band who can run the basics of a DAW? Not only am I going to try to answer these questions, but I am also going to show you how to run the basic features of my personal DAW of choice “Reaper”.
If you are wanting to get started with a Free DAW you can download Calkwalk by Bandlab for free, or you can download a full version of Reaper for free. Or get both to see which one you prefer.

Throughout my years as a musician and recording engineer, I have made many mistakes, and I have watched many new bands make the same mistakes. I want to help newer bands that are starting out make the best use of their time, and reduce stress while working together. The music industry has changed drastically, and the rules and methods of the 80s and 90s no longer work.
I have been involved with music for the majority of my life. I started out as a student of guitar and drums before I expanded my repertoire to performing on stages. I very quickly also took up providing live sound, mixing, and recording services. I also work on producing heavy alternative bands. With a vast range of experience working with multiple different styles of music, I have a passion for making sure underground artists are able to provide their fans with the quality of music they deserve. I focus on making sure that the creation you hear in your head is captured and brought to life in the way you envisioned.
The goal is to provide premium mixes and masters that allow you to showcase your art to the world and to provide amazing live videos that capture your raw energy.
