About Me

Michael-BMy name is Michael B and Iā€™m a Music Producer, Musician, Formally Trained (and Certified by the Recording Institute of Detroit in 1986) Recording Engineer, and Home Recording Studio Consultant.

As of 2022, I”ve built 3 home recording studios go back to 1987, where I wrote, played all the instruments, and recorded my music.

I’m also a Writer, Editor, and SEO of

I always had a love for music, and later wrote and recorded my own music…playing all the instruments.

My History and Qualifications

When I was around 16 years old, after playing around with my dad’s reel-to-reel and having to write a paper for school, on what I wanted to do after graduating from high school. I came to the conclusion that I wanted to be a recording engineer and run a Budget Home Recording Studio business, in which to record bands that were shopping record deals.

I did a ton of reading and research, learned how to play a couple of instruments, went to a recording school outside of Detroit called, “The Recording Institute of Detroit” and became a formally trained and certified recording engineer.

I then went on to work as an Assistant Mastering Engineer for a Cassette Tape Duplication Company called TapeTronics for about a year.

After that, I built my first, small Home Recording Studio around 1987, in my mother’s basement while I was still living at home.

When I moved out in 1992 and bought my first (and to date) only house. I built a much larger studio in my basement.

For about 10-13 years I wrote and recorded my own music, playing all the instruments.

Around the very late 1990s. I got more interested in the internet, as it was relatively new at the time, and spent less and amount of time working in my studio.

Pretty soon I stopped working in my studio altogether. It wasn’t a conscious decision, it just happened.

Recent Past Several Years

I got interested in getting back into the Home Recording Studio game.

As always, done a ton of research and discovered.

I still remembered everything I learned back in the 1980s and 1990s….I still “had it”

So, after helping countless number of people in Home Recording Studio Forums and Facebook groups, I decided to put this website together.

I wanted to and still do. Want to help people enjoy the pleasure I do. Making Music….Making the kind of Music I want to and Love.

The Present / Future

I am currently working on putting together a Video Blog / Youtube Channel for this site.

Be sure to check it out. I’ll be sharing some great and somewhat unknown information about building and recording in a Home Recording Studio.

If you have any questions…Please contact me.

I would love to hear from you.
