Helpful especially concerning the process of getting better sounding record quality
Krish helped me to understand things better. Mic placement could have been explained a bit clearer such as exact distance. But the process of getting fine sounds is very well explained, THANKS.

Good Intro to Recording Techniques
I'm learning a lot about recording techniques, some of which I knew before. This was the first series where the presenter was, well, present in the videos. Obviously, the videos needed someone to demonstrate mic placement and preamp settings. I wish Krish had been more specific about the brands and models of the mics, although I couldn't afford most of them for my project studio. Actually, it was nice to hear suggestions for project studios vs. professional recording studios.
