my summer music song thread

Postby watertore » Fri Jun 27, 2008 5:39 pm

HI All: I am a teacher, and with the summer off, I am recording everyday, and a bunch at that. I post about 1/4 of the songs I record to soundclick. I figured I would just start this thread and add to it as I put songs up. Learning how to make better recordings is driving me as much as playing music. I am having a great time with it. The technology available today for home recording, is incredible. I remember as a kid using panasonic cassette recorders with a play/record button. That was as much technology as I could afford. Back then getting a studio quality sound had to be done in a professional studio. Then you had to have a record pressing setup. Man, has it come a long way. I feel lucky to be born in this window.
