It has been a while since my last update so I felt it is time for me to write something down. Mixing has been minimal. My current project is on hold until at least after this weekend. I have been gaining some knowledge in the likes of recording as well at other things. I ended up selling some gear that wasn’t being used and I picked up a bass guitar. I wanted one for a while since it has been over a decade since I last had one. My gear has been getting greater in terms of means to record so that is always nice.
I have been messing around a little bit with the mic to see how it sounds. I recorded a review of a guitar pick using the mic and did a little acoustic guitar recording but also some basic testing. I don’t get many opportunities to record with the mic due to the noise of my surroundings.
On another side note, I got back the room analysis from Auralex about my basement that I sent in back in October. It came back a lot different from I imagined but that is why they are the pros. Since I sent in the analysis, I have changed the layout of my basement so I wouldn’t apply now so if I ever get the money to do so (or if my wife would even allow it), I would have to send it back for re-review.
Anywho…as of now I have just been playing a little bass and laying down a little MIDI drums. I am working on a cover song to play with so I will post it if and when I complete it. Let’s see how quickly I can lay down the acoustic guitar and maybe (if I am up to it) the vocals!! Right now I am looking forward to tomorrow (11-20-15) as I will be going to catch a live show of the band I have been “working” with. Rock on!
