    GarageBand

    It's Fun

    I picked it up when I had just started college because I saw how fun it looked and I asked a couple friends if I could try doing it for a song or two.  I've been doing it since then. I have friends who record their own songs for their own demos, mixtapes or they do it...

    I Forgot How Fun This Could Be

    I was a touring musician for ten years with various 70's soul groups. But I have always wanted to record my own music and release it independently. My dream was long in coming, but now with all these computer based systems and online sites like ReverbNation, I have finally...

    Atari 1080 Running Emagic

    I've dabbling in home recording since I was a kid - and that's a long time ago! - with my dad's Fergusson reel-reel tape recorder. (I bet you've never heard of Fergusson!) That was horrible - cheap & nasty mic, and very unreliable. But as a teenager, I played in a Gospel...

    What's up ya'll. Just seeing what everybody

    here uses to record. I'm using a Presonus Audiobox 2x2 as a recording interface. Mic is an SM57. Using Garageband for the moment, cuz I'm too lazy/stupid to figure out StudioOne.

    Differences But Still Great

    Anyone Can Be A Rockstar At Home

    I remember in the mid 90s this very talented singer, keyboardist told me that one day, musicians would be able to record their own music easily at home and it would not be a full on recording studio, but a portable way to record. I didn't believe her because at the time we were...
