    So i started a new chapter in my recording path. I finally started recording with logic and apple technology. I plugged into my tascam 122 unit and layed down some dirty tracks. I am using the 122 until i can get a firewire interface. Before i was recording on a PC using cubaseLE in a pretty big and open layout. Now, i am condensed into a smaller room in my new apartment. I could definalty tell a difference from the room alone as it makes its sound worse. But i am gonna have to find an approach to take to get the best results possible, might try recording downstairs when nobodys home. I am gonna make a foam shield for vocals(pretty pumped) and make the closet a vocal booth.
    Now just today i donwloaded the 3.40 driver for the 122 and i got it hooked up fine. The only thing that stumps me is that it seemed the audio signal was not as loud as it should be. I dont think i had the entire unit working correctly though either becuase the direct monitoring did not work so i went through the mac instead. Nonetheless, it feels like im starting all over again.....

    Perhaps not the best of situations (the apartment that is), but if you have fun with it, and enjoy what you're doing, that's what really matters man.
