Q: David, Like the sound... What format did you use to capture the essence? I'm a home recorder with a mac book and really dig the clearness of your music! Cheers, Keep Rockin' ~SouLinger~
A: Hey SouLinger, Thanks for the kind words... glad you're enjoying the sounds! These songs were recorded digitally, but with a lot of focus on keeping them organic and warm. This was achieved by using high quality mics and care during mic placement & mixing. Program-wise, both Pro Tools and Logic Pro were used. Hope that helps and answers your question... best of luck! David
