About



Hey, this is Mike from 424recording.com. I started a YouTube Channel about three years ago focused on recording tutorials for cassette 4-tracks. Since then, I'm branching out into indie rock and home studio recording. I'm showcasing recording tips and tricks I've developed over the years, releasing original music utilizing these techniques, and teaching people how to achieve the sounds. I'm giving away all of the recording techniques, secrets, and shortcuts I've developed that I wish someone had told me 15 years ago! Check out the YouTube Channel!



Creating the videos on the channel
combines skills I'm curious about and want to develop: writing, filming, video editing, lighting, public speaking, teaching, songwriting, music making, and of course, recording. I'll be here doing my thing every week, building a community around music and recording. If the videos and mission of 424 Recording resonates with you, entertains you, educates you, inspires you, helps you create your artistic vision, or provides you with a community to explore your interests, consider supporting me on Patreon!

A special thanks to all the fans and patrons who have watched a video, subscribed to the channel, liked a video, commented on a video, shared a video, joined the discussion on the 424 Discord, told their friends about the channel, sent me an email, hung out on a live stream, sent me equipment, listened to a podcast, bought a tape, given me feedback on the channel and my music both online and in person... thank you and godspeed, my friends!

Make sure you do something you want to do today,
Mike / 424recording.com

FAQ

I've been on Patreon for two years and creating videos on YouTube for three. Here's a brief rundown of what to expect.

How many videos do you release a month?
My release schedule is one to four videos per month (in 2020, I'm focusing on longer form videos that sometimes take a couple weeks to produce) always released on Fridays at 3pm EST.

What if I want to support a different tier than the ones listed?
If you'd like to do that, you can write in whatever amount you want during the check out process.

Do I have to pay in US Dollars?
Nope. Everything is shown in US dollars on the website but you can use any currency and it will be automatically converted.

Can I stop donating in the future if I can't afford it?
Yeah! You can cancel or adjust your pledge amount for any reason at any time.

Are there any other ways to support you?
Yeah! Since the subscription based, crowdfunding model is not for everyone, you can also send funds for the channel directly through PayPal here: paypal.me/424recording. You can also buy a premium drum recording course, Ready, Set, Record: Drums, and other merch on my website at 424recording.com.

Any other ways?
All of my music releases are available on a $5 to $whatever sliding scale. You can download my releases here: becoolcowboy.bandcamp.com (all BCC releases are also available on Spotify and YouTube) and here: 424recording.bandcamp.com There are also cassette tapes (when available). If you become a $10 patron, I'll make sure to save and mail you a copy of each tape as I release them!

Do you have any affiliate links I can support the channel through?
If you want to get your music on streaming services, I have an affiliate link through DistroKid that gives you 7% off your first year: http://distrokid.com/<wbr>vip/424
(Affiliate disclosure: I receive a commission when you sign up for DistroKid through this link!)

Can I send you stuff, like tapes, gear, postcards, etc.?
Yes! The address for the channel is:
Mike @ 424 Recording
P. O. Box 151
New Paltz, NY 12561
If there's gear you want to see in a video, send it over! I'll either send it back or keep it depending on whether you want to loan it or donate it to the channel.

Still have questions?
Email me at [email protected] and I'll help you out!
Goals
27 of 50 patrons
With the support of 50 patrons, I can get a dedicated space for the channel and have it set up for writing, shooting, editing, practicing, recording, podcasting, live streaming... the sky's the limit! When this goal is reached, I'll make my premium drum recording course, Ready, Set, Record: Drums, available to all patrons. I'm working to achieve this goal by the end of 2020.
