We do a lot of recording of original material with our band, the Muckland Crooners, and all of the members have gone digital with our own home studio setups. It's always a learning process, and the software each of us prefers is usually a bit different from the rest of the members.
What do y'all use, and how well does it work for you?
RECORDING (digital)-24 inch intel imac/garageband/yamaha active monitors.
(analogue)-teac A3440 4 track reel to reel and matching mixer.
MICROPHONES=shure sm58/pair of 1970's calrec condensor mics owned from new/ 1950's shure fatboy imported from chicago(modded by chris at mutantmics)/1980's green bullet (b4 they "improved" them)/bottle o' blues mic.
AMPS- (tube amps)- Blind Dog tweed 15watt deluxe, handwired in Southampton by Doc Turnpenny. Rat amp (Harley Benton modded in Cornwall by Andy Dokken)
(solid state amps)- vox pathfinder/vox da5/liberty/roland microcube.
GUITARS- (actively used)-reddog cbg/my own cbg/ (not used and gathering dust)-assorted shop bought 6 stringers in every corner-the poor buggers.
OTHER-kick drum-budget 60's Olympic/hi hat (£3 from garage sale) other stuff I cant be bothered to type about!
If this sounds impressive,or simply over the top,remember I've been collecting for 40 years!!
Hey Guys I am interested in starting to do some home recording I have a Mac Book Pro with Garage Band 08... Does anyone have any tips on using this software? I was at Sam Ash the other day and the sales guy suggested I move up to Pro-tools. Any thoughts on that program. Thanks - Jim
