Topic: Home Studio Recording
I am a new member of Chordie and have been entertaining a home studio for about 12 years. I started with Cakewalk Home Studio and an old Packard Bell computer. Not enough memory and disk space but I did manage to complete my first album after losing everything I worked on except for the mixed masters. I have been playing 40 plus years in local bands on the weekends mainly as a bass player but I did do a few years as rhythm and small bit keyboards.
The album, "Initial Series - White Rock”, from which I have written all the material and played all instruments with the accompaniment of a Alesis 16 drum machine.
It was released through Distrophonix on December 2010 after I had remixed and added some tunes. I got away from the studio because I upgraded to Music Creator 3 and could never get anything to work right, then updated PC and latest version of windows but nothing ever would function properly. I have since upgraded to a HP 6000 Pro and running XP Pro software and everything seems to be working great. I have actually revisited one of my instrumental songs "Country Folk" and even added lyrics. Who says you can't sing instrumental songs
Any who this is a sample of my latest revisited work and working on more!
Would appreciate any feedback, questions or recommendations about my work.
