This is a bold statement but recording, mixing and playing are about making bold and calculated moves. Inching our way to success.
What is so fun about Smith Music's recording studio?
Over the last year my entire mind set has shifted. This is the main reason I've been able to make the best possible studio experience for myself and translate that to my clients. I LOVE mixing now. My experience until the last few years has been one of mixes getting progressively
This is a pretty bold statement that doesn't come easily from me.
When I started to get pretty good as a musician I went though a phase were I was super picky about everything. Instrument, string brand, cable length, Even building custom instruments to achieve perfection.
As I achieved success I ditched all that pickiness insisting that 99% of my tone was the player. I played on absolute crap for a while. I continued working even when
After exploring Reaper and have it crash and burn 75% of the way through getting my template set up I decided to learn more about Logic(the Daw I've used for the last couple years after switching from cubase). Reaper has AWESOME import/export functions and it turns out that logic has pretty good ones but far more rudimentary then Reapers. Logic has handled my crazy routing though.
I decided to take some time making my ultimate template for mixing and another one for tracking now
So I had sinus surgery just before Christmas and while I was recovering I decided to learn everything I could about reaper and see if it was a better daw then logic. A much better solution then watching T.V. and feeling miserable.
What did I do to give it a fair shot?
I watched a video course on line. I really was able to dig into every aspect of the program.
What it can do.
It can do everything that logic and cubase
One of the places I've struggled with recording and mixing is with room mics. If I had shame I'd say I've struggled to an embarrassing degree:-) With no formal training(not for lack of looking) and a decade and a half experience I've finally started to make some head way into the black art of room mics. My other blogs and threads will mark the headway in the battle.
I'll start off by saying that I like my drum tones. I found ways around, and even not, needing room mics. This
