What is Home Studio Alkemy?

Home Studio Alkemy is a learning platform and community for songwriters, producers and home studio musicians.

Instead of staying in with Netflix, binge on our series of high-quality programming and learn valuable skills for songwriting, recording, mixing, and production. Hone your craft and develop your signature sound with us -- finish your songs, delight your growing audience and attract better opportunities with your professional-grade productions.

Do you find yourself in any of these situations?

You love jamming with your friends, and perhaps even have a room dedicated to music.
You have plenty of ideas and sketches of songs or tracks, but none of them are actually finished.
People love hearing you play your songs, but none of them are on Spotify, iTunes or YouTube.
You have decent gear but your recordings just don’t quite sound like the pros.
When you play your tracks alongside your favorite artists’, they don’t sound as loud and impactful, and you feel disappointed.
You feel like you should get better opportunities and recognition as an artist, but your music career is stalled. 

If any of these resonate with you, I totally get it. It’s not your fault. If you haven’t had the opportunity to attend a music production or sound engineering school, that means no-one has taken the time to show you step by step how it’s done. No one has showed you the techniques, secrets and shortcuts… 

Until today.

You’ve probably spent hours on YouTube, and maybe you’ve found a great tutorial or two -- but where’s the follow up? Where’s the rest of that knowledge you know is out there? Topics are scattered. Misinformation abound. It takes hours to curate the right content and hours more to connect the dots.

You wish someone would just lay it out for you, step by step, from start to finish, in a well-structured, comprehensive fashion.

Well… your wish has been granted!

My name is Olivier Bessaignet...

I’m a French composer and sound engineer currently living on the West Coast. I graduated from the Berklee College of Music of Boston in 2000, and I’m the founder of the Home Studio Alkemy community.

I’m originally from Nice, south of France. I first started learning how to play violin when I was 6. Then found myself in rock bands as a keyboard player when I turned 16.

When I became a full-time musician at 22, things started to get more complicated... 

My band needed a demo tape to get more gigs, but none of us knew anything about recording. I bought an - at the time - expensive 8-track tape recorder and we spent hours trying to figure it out. I felt really frustrated. I used EQ randomly and I didn’t know what a compressor was.

I really wanted to hear our songs finished on tape -- to feel proud of myself and get better opportunities -- but it just wasn’t coming together.

I became so frustrated that I spent all my money attending Berklee College of Music and earning a degree in Music Production & Engineering. Project after project, it finally started to click. I went back to France and finally created my own commercial recording studio in 2005.

Long story short, I now live on the west coast with my family, and I found my purpose in fostering a community of passionate musicians with a love for writing, producing, and mixing great music. Every month, we shoot more videos and tutorials with amazingly talented musicians - adding to the wealth of content available on Home Studio Alkemy.

Rather than trying to teach you everything myself, I believe it would better serve you to watch over the shoulders of several professionals. This way, you get the best tricks and secrets of many successful engineers, producers, and musicians -- giving you everything you need to develop your own signature “secret sauce.”

That is why I’ve created Home Studio Alkemy. Just like your favorite entertainment streaming platform, tune in to your current topic of interest and learn from the best!

Who Is This Membership For?

The courses available at Home Studio Alkemy are specifically crafted to suit singer/songwriters, bands, and musicians who record ​their own music at home.
The techniques taught here can be applied to any music genre.
We demonstrate multiple DAWS (Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Logic Pro, Luna, Cubase, Maschine, and more). So you can apply this knowledge to any piece of hardware or plugin.
All levels are welcome. There is no stupid question; we all started somewhere. At Home Studio Alkemy, we are passionate about raising the level of talent and creativity in our students. If you're a beginner, we'll help you get started. If you're advanced, we will help hone your skills and expand your expertise.

Why subscribe now?

To make it as an artist, you need to finish your songs. You need to release them on Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud and more.
Whether you're a songwriter looking to place your songs, a band looking for more gigs, or a solo artist growing your audience, people need to find you online and listen to your music.
And a “demo” sound is always embarrassing. To be recognized as a genuine artist, you need radio-ready mixes.
Even if you don’t win a Grammy award like Billie Eilish - who recorded her album in her bedroom - we guarantee that what you learn from these courses will drastically improve your sound and enhance your creativity.
Yet, if you don’t make the Billboard charts every time, hopefully you can express yourself every time.
