Patreon works well for me for correspondence and questions. Due to the volume of emails I receive, it's tough to get back to everyone. DMs and emails from patrons are priority one.

About Mike Parish

Hey, this is Mike from 424recording.com. I started a YouTube Channel about four years ago focused on recording tutorials for cassette 4-track recorders. Since then, the channel has been growing and I've been branching out into home studio and DAWless recording.

Creating the videos on the channel combines skills I'm curious about and want to continue developing: 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 joining me on Patreon!

A special thanks to all the fans and patrons past and present who have helped support 424 Recording both on and off Patreon. The best part about the channel has been the people I've met and continue to meet. Thanks for being here and godspeed, my friends!

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

I've been on Patreon for three years and creating videos on YouTube for four. Here's a brief rundown of what to expect and answers to some commonly asked questions about Patreon.

How many videos do you release a month?
In 2021, my release schedule is two videos per month, every other Sunday at Noon EST. My focus this year is on quality over quantity. I'm also releasing a third, exclusive update video each month on Patreon.

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

Do I have to pay in US Dollars? 
No. Since I'm in the US, everything is shown in US dollars but you can use any currency you like and it will be automatically converted.

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

Are there other ways to support you?
Keep watching and sharing the channel! I'm just grateful that people watch the videos and that I have an audience with which to share my interests. 

Beyond that, the best way to support the channel is by using the affiliate links from zZounds or Amazon on 424recording.com. Whenever you use them, the channel receives a commission at no extra cost to you. It's a win-win-win: you get something you want, the channel gets a commission, and the company gets a customer.

If you're looking to get your music distributed online, you can also use this 424 Recording VIP affiliate link through DistroKid.com, which gets you 7% off your first year and gets the channel a commission.

Lastly, you can buy me a cup of coffee and send funds for the channel directly through PayPal: paypal.me/424recording.

Can I send you stuff, like tapes, gear, postcards, etc.?
Sure! 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!
