Demos are an essential part of any musician’s creative process. You need demos to solicit feedback from mates and professionals, to send around to your band in order to finalise your tracks, and so much more. But how do you actually record them?
We’re here to all your questions. In the next of our Underproof Workshops, we’ll be covering everything you need to know about Demoing and Recording at Home.
What are demos, why do you need them, and how do you record them? Find out everything you need to know at our online Underproof Workshop: Demoing and Recording at home.
Underproof is a yearly initiative run by Happy Mag and the Northern Beaches Council, giving 5 bands with under 500 Facebook likes the chance to play alongside a massive Aussie headliner. In the lead-up to that show on September 19th, we’ve been running online workshops aimed at emerging bands from Sydney and beyond.
Topics we’ve already covered include Releasing and Promoting Independently and Marketing 101, and next Tuesday it’ll be all things Demoing and Recording at Home. Find out how to record in a home setting, what kind of gear you’ll need, and the essentials around how best to attack the demoing process from a creative standpoint.
The workshop goes down on Tuesday 21 April from 6pm AEST, run by Happy Mag’s Music Editor Tom Cameron and Enmore Audio’s Editor and Sound Engineer Dan Shaw. Lime Cordiale will also be making a special appearance to chat about how they lay down demos in their home.
Check out all the info for the upcoming Underproof Workshop below, and respond ‘Going’ to the Facebook Event to stay updated.
