At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, I, like everyone else in the music industry, had to change my business model drastically.
Going to studios to track drums was not possible for quite some time and I already had a home studio that was well suited to churn out top quality drum tracks. However when it came to particular aspects of remote work – fast workflow, content creation and visual appeal – my studio was lacking.
If there’s one thing I inherited from my father, it’s the propensity to over-investigate and research new purchases – so I hit the internet in search of affordable solutions to my problems. This list will hopefully shine some light on a few items that I’ve found that improved my remote recording business immensely.
Sony a6100 + Elgato CamLink 4K
Why I like it:
Visual feedback is just as important as verbal feedback – and I wanted something with great video quality for a decent price. I love the a6100 – you can use it like I do with an Elgato CamLink 4k HDMI capture card, or you can use its built in USB webcam function – plug and play!
