Today, anyone can create music at home, on their laptops, or on smartphones. But while low-cost recording tools have opened the gates to music creation and recording, it’s made it that much harder for professional and aspiring musicians, artists, engineers, mixers, songwriters, and producers to stand out from the crowd.

You need the best tools available to make your music come to life. That’s why nearly every top artist and audio professional uses Avid to create the most popular, most acclaimed albums, songs, and soundtracks.

Tone | Timbre | Tech: Recording with Joshua Grange & Brandy Zdan
