Toys

I got my eyes on the mini and that compact version. I think I’ll go ahead and invest in that mini first. Being able to have a portable control surface that only needs a USB for power has a lot of advantages. Especially if the game plan is full throttle.

Anyways I’ve been searching for a way to add some really good character to my blog. I haven’t been on it too much so far this year. I had some life changing bumps in the road but I’m still mashing on!!!

Rest in peace and you shall live through me Aunt Addy Lee!!!

Stay tuned I’m done with a mix that I was dropping earlier this year!!! The timing is perfect at the minute though!!!!

Stay up!!!

Peace!!!

Upgrade

20121219-090906.jpg

I’m looking to upgrade my system and reopen my services to the public again. For one, I need to be as lucrative as I possibly can in order to carry out my plans for next year. Secondly, I miss helping other people put together projects.

Presentation is key to making a good impression on people and the more professional you look the better the experience. These pieces are fairly inexpensive and will give me a chance to be hands on again versus using a mouse to control my software. The only drawback I’ve heard about them is the automated faders don’t run as smoothly as they should but you can open the machine up and tighten the bands on each fader to improve its automation.

Slowly but surely my plans are starting to move forward….it feels good!!!!

Ain’t No Half Steppin’

What’s up world the same old same old on my end just relaxing a taken a breather from the everyday stresses of life. I’ve stumbled upon a tiny problem. One that is very irritating to someone such as myself who is very picky.

The issue is my sound-card.. It works…just not the way I would like for it to. You see it picks up this weird noise whenever the recorded material is either low or none at all . I know the noise is there because of my unconventional set up so now it’s time to remedy the issue by dropping a little money on a better sound card.

I have no other choice seeing as how my goal before the end of this summer is to be in position to record more than just myself. I’m capable of recording others now but in a world where everyone is so judgmental on appearance I’ve got to step it up.

If it looks good it is good!!!!!

Summer’s end is just around the corner but a lil patience is all I need. I already know that for the most part I have to purchase two control surfaces and a better sound-card. After i do that, I’ll be confident in providing my services to anyone looking to book studio time once again. Not only will it make things more efficient for me, it will also make my set up look a bit more professional.

My only draw back at this time is I’ll have to cut my recording fees to compete with bigger recording studios in the area. Honestly, I’m not really even trying to compete with them as I am pretty sure there is a market out there just for me. I’ll have to rely on cleverness to find those who could benefit from my services the most but I already have a clue as to where to start. As with anything else as long as I give it my all I’m sure word of mouth will spread and I’ll be meeting my quota on studio time.

Most of the other studios around here have elaborate set ups and can record an entire band. I don’t think that’s the route I plan on taking I’ll just keep my studio strictly for vocals and pre-production.

Essentially,the genre of music that I deal with most never uses a band during the recording process. I guess that is what always gave hip hop it’s grittiness because we never really utilize the entire power of a studio. That’s something I will speak about in a blog by itself one day soon. Not today though.

Well, that’s about all. I’ve got some shopping to do for my next move so I guess I’ll be on my way with no delay. Stay tuned I may have a treat dropping soon so until my next post stay up!!!!
