    Home Audio Recording

    Anyone here dabble in their own personal studio-like recording at home? Instrument or voice.

    Two friends of mine are big into Audacity, track recording, mixing, etc. Well, they got me sucked in. I own a real drum set, which may come in handy if one of the two of them record a guitar track and want real drums, instead of something a drum machine produced.

    More to the point, this is giving me a reason to get the ol' bodhran out and play it again.

    Off and on but I don't really have the patience to record tracks. I much prefer to play live.

    I've used Apple software some. It's all pretty good. Logic Express works well and is easy.

    Back in the day, I used my Tascam PortaStudio 424 a lot but not in about 10 years or so... It's just collecting dust in a box now...

    I've got a little studio setup.

    Alesis Studio 32 mixer, MOTU 2408, Sony DAT, Cool Edit Pro (now Adobe Audtion), and a few assorted effects. Several years back, we had a modicum of success on the original mp3.com, and my share was actually enough to purchase the studio gear. I've had most of the stuff for about 8 or 9 years, and it doesn't get used much any more.

    We did demos and bit of recording for my old band. I've also been trying to work on a project for my son in law, but they don't usually show up when scheduled, so I've pretty much lost interest.

    I have installed Audacity on my laptop. I am currently using the mic built-in to my laptop to try some recording. Obviously, the results are poor, but still interesting. I have put in an order or 3 to ebay for some inexpensive stuff to get me started.

    I do some lame recordings on my website (www.hung-pham.com)

    I've got a small 8-track at home that I play around with.

    But, I'm with CGV, it's all about doing stuff live... and having a good and appreciative audience.

    I'm like The Grateful Dead. My magic can only be captured live. The studio just sucks the life out of my music...

    He's probably being kind and trying to save me some embarassment!

    In the end, regrets rarely come from things done, but from things not even tried.
