I use it all the time, and even though its suitable for everyone, it makes a whole lot more sense if you already know a little bit about producing! Because of the terms that are used in this program.
Price: $0.00 N/A (new)
Where Obtained: A bought program.
Suitable for all skill levels of guitarists
It is great, I already have the studio buddy and have had it for about a year or so. I got it free when I ordered this program off the net and read through it and since I want to be a producer, it was right up my alley, check it out. Best thing about it is that its free.

I have only really started using SB. But, I have to say, I've felt the difference already. Okay, there are lots of suggestions I can't use because I don't have the necessary hardware - effects racks, monitors, 5 backup singers to stand in a circle around an omni-directional mic, that kind of thing. But if nothing else, it has fuelled my desire to take the whole recording thing a little more seriously, and man! Has GAS kicked in or what!

Look, it's free, and it's invaluable. What more could there possibly be to say?!?

If you have a PC, you can run this app. Just download the version appropriate and Robert's your father's brother. Once you've installed it, you see a split screen. On the left hand side are a whack of recording questions you might have. Click on the question you're asking and...

You'll get an answer! Simple as that. For instance, let's imagine your question is something as simple as "How do I record a lead vocal?" You click on the question, and the answer, which contains everything from mic technique to mic selection and mix tips comes up, along with, in certain instances, examples of where you might have heard the particular techinque used on a record.

As an amateur/wannabe/hobbyist/home recording engineer (ha ha!) I find Studio Buddy to be exceptionally useful in getting me out of ruts that I might find myself in, not to mention giving me a whole host of new ideas and insights. No home or project (read: non-pro) studio should be without it!

Ease of use? Studio Buddy would only be easier to use if you could download it directly into your brain.
