Lesson 4: Proper Recording Levels
  • The industry standard for recording and exporting songs at high resolution audio is 44.1 kHz/24-bit 

  • When recording, aim for an average of -18dB. 

  • Your loudest parts should be peaking around -10dB and lowest around -24dbB. 

  • This ensures you retain dynamic range without clipping or distorting the signal.

Your Next Task
  • Your task is to complete a full track that includes a live instrument (preferably one you recorded yourself).

  • It could be drums, bass, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, piano, harmonica, or anything else you have access to.

  • If you don’t play any instruments see if you have a friend who does and record them.
