CB Nation Recording Studio


CB Nation Recording Studio

An experimental recording collective where members of the Nation can collaborate on music with other members. Please start a new discussion for each new song.

Members: 257
Latest Activity: Feb 6

One - Two - Three - Four

Here's where we can work together to record some music. Anyone can participate, either adding a track or starting a new project. As always, there's no rules, but maybe to make it simple there should be some guidelines.

Obviously each project should be in a format that makes it easy for others to join in. Or not. Audacity is a Free, full featured music recording application available for Mac, PC and Linux which many members here use and can assist others with.

Some veterans may use more serious software that attracts more serious contributions. ProTools with a serious studio setup?

Let's make this a fun way for us to work together many miles apart.

All suggestions concerning how to make this easy and fun are welcome, and everyone is invited to join in. HAAAAA, if your track doesn't fit the song, it can always be deleted...

Well Nation, let's make some music together!

Guys we run an unofficial radio station and hope to do another podcast for Christmas. If anyone wants to send a song (mp3 or wav) let me or Slow Paw

or even record a joint one

Let me or Steve know "CBGUKRadio" wants your tunes for a Christmas special....

We cant play everyone's but will give it a dam good go.

I use lots of things to record, Irig record is free for you Iphone and does a great job if you happen to have phone,

Acid pro is good

Line pod 6 Ux1 or 2 are fun too...

A good mic and a valve pre-amp are sweet too..

Cancel my previous question. Just heard back from the OP. He deleted it. Sorry!

Comment by eK on November 21, 2012 at 8:43am

I just noticed the discussion thread on the project I was recently involved with has disappeared. Do these threads normally get deleted after a project is concluded? I wanted to show it to to a musician friend of mine (who was thinking of joining) to show her some of what people do around here. Please advise? :-)

Hey there, just saw your post, I haven't been on CBN for a while, just been busy with band and music and guitars.

Here is the info and links to my band, The Budrows...

Please read the bio's, check the video's, etc. and let me know if you have any questions. If you are in the Southern California area, you should come out to see us sometime, we are playing next tuesday in Long Beach.

Thanks, and good stuff on Guitar World, rock on!!!

I'm looking for some CBG  artist wanting to be a part of my next few Guitar World articles.   If you have some stuff recorded or a video or a website with a bio or background info send it my way or tell me where to look. 

I usually try to make 50% of the article about the CBG artist and 50% about the project we are trying to build. 

Guitar World has over 209k followers on Facebook, its a pretty great way to help build up a fan base.

Here is a link to some for the previous ones I have written. 


Drop me a line at sanercigarboxguitars@aol.com you are interested.

Sounds great, HD!  Good to see some activity here in CBNation Recording studio.

Trying to build instruments, get together some recording gear, and learn how to use all of the above is quite a task!

The post below by michael steele was really helpful...  I gotta read more!



Comment by Howling Dick on September 27, 2012 at 2:17pm

Im planning podcasts of low fi blues and cigar box guitars. If anyone wants their music included (with links) please contact me. Not worried about quality of recording, what Im looking for is real blues to play to the world.

Comment by rusty case on August 22, 2012 at 2:56pm

I am trying to get a handle on what I might need to make some recordings of myself playing this newly built Dbo so I can track my progress.

and I have no clue what a comment wall is!
