An Entire Debut Album Recorded on an iPhone–and It Sounds Amazing!

Not that long ago, an artist had to spend thousands of dollars on renting a professional recording studio to properly record an album.  Not any more, apparently.

Chris Price may have set a new standard for cheapness when it came to making Homesick, his debut album.  All it took was his existing iPhone and a $10 app called 4-Track Audio Recorder.  And it sounds fantastic.

    No details on how much they spent on mixing and mastering?

    It's entirely possible they saved on that too through a friend (Good musicians could find a young guy willing to take low/no/deferred payment)… however as a live and Mix engineer I find that it doesn't matter what was used to record something, but that those using it knew how to get the most out of it.
