Recording Like MacGyver

For the Resourceful Music Maker

The original eBook is Back!!!


Welcome to Recording Like MacGyver! My name (the guy writing this!) is Aaron J. Trumm – I’m a music artist and producer. I’ve been at it for 30 years and I’ve never had tons of money, so I’m super resourceful.

This site is all about recording music and everything that goes into it from production to audio to writing to business – but with a little twist – whenever we can, we focus on being resourceful and smart rather than just throwing money at the problem. That’s more than just finding cheap deals or free software – in order to be good at this without spending as much money as most people do, we really gotta know our stuff!

Just like MacGyver! He would always foil the bad guys with bubble gum and tape – because he REALLY knew how stuff worked! That’s what we’re here for – to help you get so good at making records you have a huge financial advantage! Even if you don’t have a lot to spend, you can make great recordings! So, come on, let’s make hit records for practically nothing! Or at least have some fun and get smarter about our music. 🙂

Start with the blog – since I write for trades and brands I accumulate a lot of helpful info. I’ve been saving it on my artist site, but now it’s going to be here!

Next, check out the Instagram and/or TikTok pages – that’s where we are day to day, coming up with helpful and fun content and interacting with the huge community of music makers worldwide.

Finally, if you need something or have a question, hit me up on email.  Happy recording!
