Do you want to learn home recording basics or improve your recordings? We can help! Join MusicLandria on Sunday, April 11 from 1-2:30 p.m. PST for our Intro to Home Recording Workshop facilitated by Freelance Audio Engineer and Music Producer Nate Gessner.
The workshop will start with a brief demonstration/activity followed by a guided instructional slideshow of essential recording concepts and technology, which will include items such as the basics of digital audio and audio interfaces, microphone selection and placement, and an introduction to Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) and how to choose the right DAW for you. After the guided segment, we will have a Q&A session so you can ask any questions that will assist you in breaking down the barriers to recording your own great-sounding music at home!
A downloadable copy of the slideshow with other links/resources will be made available to attendees after the workshop.

About Nate Gessner: Nate is very passionate about thoughtfully creating compelling music and high quality recordings regardless of available resources or space. Nate started recording at home at an early age, upgraded to his first multi-track recorder in high school, and has continued to dive deeper and deeper into the world of recording to this day. He has honed his engineering skills over 15 years of recording in bedrooms, basements, and professional recording studios.
After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communication in 2011, Nate pursued his true passion of audio engineering and music production by obtaining a degree in Recording and Music Technology from Madison Media Institute (MMI) where he learned from industry veterans like Kevin Guarnieri (Mariah Carey, Kelly Clarkson, Whitney Houston, Mick Jagger, Boyz II Men, Alanis Morissette and Carole King among many others). After graduating, Nate seized the opportunity to become a teaching assistant for MMI Recording Department instructors like Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Member Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails, Tweaker).
Since graduating from MMI in 2013, Nate has engineered at DNA Music Labs in Madison, WI; the Library of MusicLandria for Sac Unplugged and Synth Trips; Omina Labs in Sacramento; and pretty much any space available that’s not noisy and won’t produce a noise complaint. One of his recent projects, Heavy are the Times by Yo! And the Electric, was recorded solely in home/office settings.
