Overview

Computers have changed the way we make music. For less than a thousand dollars (including the computer!), you can have a studio in your bedroom that rivals the capabilities of million-dollar studios of not that long ago. One of the best tools at the recording musician's disposal is SONAR Home Studio, a powerful and relatively inexpensive digital audio workstation. But to truly maximize your creativity, you need more than just the program and the manual, you need guidance on how to actually use the program to make music- guidance included in this book. Making Music with SONAR Home Studio shows you how to use Home Studio as a creative tool, not just a recording program. It goes beyond the user manual to help you get started recording the right way in your home studio, then explains the how and why of using the program in easy-to-understand language. Everything from optimizing your recording setup to composing, recording, and mixing down a song is covered. Each recording scenario offers step-by-step detailed instructions and points you in the right direction for reaching your ultimate musical goals.
