I'm coining a new term for a new genre. I'm calling it ..Counter Alternative. I might even post a new profile under that genre,just so I can be number 1. At least until the next counter alternative band.
It's a little tough playing the drums on a keyboard,but I can't have a set of drums in my apartment.I'm sure the neighbors wouldn't like it.So,for now,I have to play drums with my little Yamaha prs e-413.Oh well.
Okay...there's no one named Adelaide with whom I'm in love,but I think I'd like to visit Adelaide,Australia for a while.
I've fallen in love with Adelaide,but she doesn't even know I exist.
It amazes me when something is working one day and not the next.oh well...I guess stuff just breaks. My vocal compressor isn't working and it forced me to go directly into the mixing board.Oh well...these things have a way of working out.It forces me to improvise and I needed to start changing the sound a little anyway.
I really love those takes on the first run through of a song.It's pure creativity.Just feeling out the different parts and trying different things.In some ways they can be better than the final cut.In some ways they're not.There is usually quite a few missteps,but that's okay,it's just the first run.
After working way too long on the last song,I'm determined to get the next couple of songs out a little faster.I'm just wondering which song to do next
Working on a new song.Hopefully,I should have it done this week.
Alright!.Finally got the studio up and running.Looking forward to getting back to work.
well,about halfway with the new work station.I hit a snag when one of the boards cracked.Just a little delay.I have to get down to the lumber yard for one board.Oh well. For the audiophiles:I don't use a computer.I like the old fashioned stand alone equipment. I use a Behringer Xenyx 1832 eighteen channel mixer,an Alesis stereo noise gate/compresssor and a Behringer stereo thirty one band equalizer .From there I send one feed to a Fostex MR16 sixteen track recorder and another feed into a Tascam 2488neo digital portastudio.Pretty basic,but I like the way it works and sounds.Besides,I'm having alot of fun with it and I think that's what's important.Oh yeah,I'm using an MXL3000 microphone.
