Recording Music

Enjoying Logic Studio 9. It's a wonderful package with so many musically useful tools. For myself, I am old-school. I tend to design, compose and record music in a linear fashion. Using the Yamaha MOTIF_XS and DAW software like Logic and Cubase, has given me incentives to stretch my musical legs and try some new things.

Still, when working vocal tracks I find it more useful to use a dedicated mixer/recorder, such as the AW4416 to record, mix and embellish, utilizing the Y56K sonic power. It's easy to transfer the tracks over to the Mac and import into Logic. On the flipside, Logic is certainly capable of these identical operations, however for me, it FEELS better to do it on the 4416 console. Plus automix is out-of-this-world totally awesome!

In any case, I'm not sure how often I am going to update my blog from now to summer 2010. My current goal is to record an entire album of songs. And I anticipate this consuming twenty (20) months of my time OR more! So I will not be providing weekly updates, nor will I be handing out demo-snippets of my new songs. You'll have to wait until the album is complete.

The holidays are coming in twenty days, so I will take this time to wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and happy new year.
