Hello all First off I want to say that this site rocks, and I am truly impressed by the professional and friendly advice that all of you give. Ok I have tons of material that I have been writing for about 5 years now. And I want to be able to start recording. Through the very sound advice on this site, I have been slowly buying pieces of gear to record with and I am finally ready to start recording. The main reason I want to do the recording at home is because it is were I feel the most comfortable. Also I would love to go into a studio and start making records , but I just dont have that kind of money. So I have come up with a plan that might let me get the best of both worlds. Please let me know if this is good plan or not? I want to record my music at home with the equipment I have, which is (AT4050 mic , RNP Preamp, Nuendo and Cubase ( yes there leagal, bought them off of ebay) and a Lynx L22 soundcard. I play guitar, bass, vocals, and Reason. I am a solo artist (by choice). So I figured If I record each track with a pretty decent signal chain, I could send the project file to one of you guys to mix it. I would give anyone that wants to take this on total freedom, and do whatever they feel sounds best. I want to do it this way because I cant mix , and its one of those things I dont think I will ever be able to do. I deeply respect the art that you guys have. I am sure anyone of you would do a great job , but I was hoping I could get someone that would run the tracks through some of those famous outboard pieces you guys have compressors, pre, and analog reel to reel. I LOVE ANALOG SOUND! Plese let me know if this is the right way to go. And if so?? Is there anyone on here that would like to take this project on? please let me know , we could talk price and direction later on. Thanks guys, hope this is'nt a stupid post.
