I've been whinging on for a few years about not having the right equipment to make great sounding tracks. I've now upgraded my gear and really got to grips with how it works. I've spent hours everyday reading and practicing techniques. Only one problem has now become apparent... MY SONGS SUCKASS!!! I had dreams of changing the face of music and have come down to earth with a bang. Before I could blame my mic/pre/software... now there is no escaping the truth! ... On the plus side, I'm recording loads of mates stuff which IS good and thanks to my practice is sounding REALLY good recorded! Looks like a change in career!
