Hi to all-
New to the board, but not to the industry. I've got 25+ years' experience in a 24 track analog studio, having written/recorded about 7 albums' worth of material. I was pretty much on the road as a lead guitarist from 1983-1993. During much of that time, I wrote many of my tunes in my Fostex 4 track cassette recorder. The quality sucked, but it was a great songwriting tool.
For the last 7 years, I performed in my church's praise band (very contemporary, full rock band). But now that my kids are at a self-sufficient age, I've decided to switch gears and write an album's worth of Christian rock and/or acoustic tunes, ala Jack Johnson. And so- I've sold off much of my live road gear and have put together a nice little digital studio in the basement. Equipment includes a killer PC with a gig of RAM and a total 650 gig HD space, Adobe Audition 2
.0, Reason 3.0
, Delta 1010LT
interface card, M Audio MIDI controller keyboard, Sony monitors, AKG Perception 200
studio mic w. pop filter, Roland ME-10 FX and GR-09
guitar synth, Alvarez acoustic guitar, Jackson Dinky reverse
outfitted with MIDI pickup, and my 1976 Gibson Flying V.
The intent is to produce a CD and start on rotation at a couple of local coffeehouses in the Kansas City area. Anyway- just wanted to say hi and I'm glad to have found the forum!!!
