In the last podcast episode, I explained the experiment we’re doing on Musician Monster and how were taking an original song from a concept and showing what we do to earn income from it. We’re going through the entire process and sharing everything with you.
That said, one of the first steps to making money with music is to record it. This step is pricey, and we want to figure out how to get it done inexpensively, without sacrificing quality.
Today’s guest is Tom from MadCraft. Tom’s been on the show before, but I invited him to come back and explain how he records his own music—without going into the studio and spending a fortune.
