No DAW? No Problem!

Hi! My name is Josh Thomas from Austin, Texas.

I’ve been a musician for over 20 years. I enjoy recording tunes I liked over at

I found a lot of the information about home recording on the internet was either very technical and hard to understand, or focused on the inner specifics of the various DAWs. I started to offer a repository of information about home recording – audio fundamentals, techniques for recording specific instruments, reviews of the best products, and yes…even some DAW tutorials.

I use Pro Tools as my primary DAW, however I much prefer the recording experience of using a multitrack recorder. I’ll usually record into my Tascam DP-008EX, mixing and bouncing as I go, then eventually output to Pro Tools for a mix and additional EQ.

I hope you enjoy my website (and I hope you enjoy my tunes).
