Now, in case you haven’t noticed, I’m not very good at coming up with song titles so I haven’t really named any of my songs so far. In part, this is due to a lack of creativity and also due to the fact that up until now I have mostly been playing around with recording and haven’t actually sat down and “wrote” a song. I plan on becoming more disciplined and focused in the future and will be creating and recording actual songs. But, for now, I would still like to share some of the recordings I have made because I think they’re pretty good and because they illustrate the potential that exists in home digital recording – even for the recreational musician.
This next recording was made using the Cakewalk Sonar software, the Dimension Pro software and the Korg X50 keyboard/synthesizer. In addition, I also used my Roland Handsonic electronic drums synthesizer (which is the coolest thing I have ever had the joy to play and will be posting about it shortly) and my Fender Strat (which I will also be posting about later). I recorded most of the tracks on my Boss BR864 digital multitrack recorder and then transfered them to my computer where I added a Dimension Pro synth track and mixed everything with the Sonar program. I used the same backing track from the Korg that I used in the first song, as you will probably recognize. Hope you like it!
