Who says you need a fancy recording studio with expensive mics to make high quality music? Steve Lacy of The Internet has never said that.

Lacy has shown us that you don’t need to drop hundreds of dollars to record pro-sounding music — you just need your iPhone, your guitar, and GarageBand.

He’s not the first band to record an album on an iPhone, or even on an iPad. But Lacy is getting a lot of buzz.

He produced the song “PRIDE” from Kendrick Lamar’s new album, DAMN, entirely with his iPhone, reports Wired.

So I have no excuse to not record that song I’ve been wanting to record. I no longer can use the excuse, “I’ll never record an album because it’s too expensive.”

At the very least, I can just whip out my phone and start tracking songs.
