HSS Episode 026-Time Saving Tips

In today's episode we're going to cover various ways to save time in the studio. As a musician and freelance audio engineer, father of two, and one who has full-time job outside of the studio, I know the importance of time in respect to our passion.

On the one hand, we would like to spend hours tweaking knobs and laying down great tracks. On the other hand, we have a job, a family, church, friends,and even pets that we don't want to feel less than important to us. It can be frustrating when you feel like these things are holding you back from productivity and fulfillment.
So today I want to give you a few different approaches on how you can turn the few moments you're given to work on your passion into a highly productive and musically profitable moment in time.
Whether you are recording yourself, mixing, recording others, practicing, or all of the above, I would like to leave you with just a few tips that I have learned over the years that have dramatically improved the productivity and efficiency of the musical moments of my life.

Today we have our first "sponsor" as well! It is a unique perfume company that helps to alleviate some awkward situations in life.

The back story for our "sponsor":
"Pathetica" was founded by Shloogle Flam, a hypothetical company in a city you've never heard of, from a country that doesn't exist, at a moment in time that never happened, and specializes in ambiguous products that aren't sold anywhere.

Okay, so in remembrance of the now passed April Fool's Day, from Home Studio Simplified's team (a team of one, right now)... "April Fools!!"

Now to get serious. In today's episode we will cover various ways to save time and be more productive with the time we are given within the realm of the studio. Listed below are bullet points of some of the topics were going to cover. Enjoy!

*Bus or Aux Channels
