Audio Assemble is a web site that was created so that people can easily and quickly learn how to use all types of recording software and everything that comes along with it. It was founded in 2008 and will continue to serve as your one-stop audio engineering learning center for aspiring musicians and audio engineers.

This web site is not just for Pro Tools LE and Pro Tools users – it is for all lovers of music. The site will take many different approaches on delivering what you need as a producer, musician, and overall music lover to help you understand the recording and the music industry and how it plays an important factor in our lives whether you are a professional or amateur music producer, or whether you are just someone that is interested!

There are three main goals for Audio Assemble.

  1. Help all levels of music products to understand their industry better.
  2. Help educate musicians and producers on the best types of equipment to use
  3. Help musicians and producers have the edge in their career by providing a free avenue of information directly relevant to their career and passion
