Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface

Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface
Amazon: http://amzn.to/2omri5H (supported link - thanks!) So I'm considering this audio interface. I hear good things about it. It has 2 headphone outs. I'm coming from sort of an old school setup; a MOTU rack firewire interface which served me very well, even recording into a very old iBook with OS 9 and Bias Deck II as the DAW. Now I'm on a MacBook Pro with Logic Pro X. I've purchased a couple entry level audio interfaces since moving to the new computer. An IK Multimedia Solo and a...

How the 1990s Changed Recording and Music Production Forever

How the 1990s Changed Recording and Music Production Forever
The 1980s saw recording technology becoming more compact and cheaper to mass produce, kicking off a home recording revolution with cassette tape that would continue into the 1990s. Tascam’s popular cassette-based Portastudio became increasing popular in the 1990s. While the Portastudio is now a digital recorder, its 1990s tape incarnation would spawn imitations from countless competitors. The low-quality recordings helped these machines enjoy recognition by way of a "lo-fi" aesthetic...

Where Do I Find Royalty-Free Music?

Where Do I Find Royalty-Free Music?
A fellow graphic artist and voiceover creator Alex, asked me where he can find royalty-free music for his voiceovers. Google came to mind immediately for me since I've used its royalty-free beds a number of times for my corporate videos. But there are thousands of sources on the interwebs aren't there? Are there? As you really get to looking it seems that "royalty-free" is not always royalty-free or even free at all. If you look closely at the licenses of the places advertising...

Bryan , wow thanks for the comment, that is one of my older tracks - I used to try to make "real" songs like this but I really never got much positive feedback on them. I thought they were good but it did not seem like people were into them so I stopped recording things like this.

Very nice, Dominic. Your sparse guitar and echoing vocal touches the mood of this song beautifully.

Wow, Shell! I love how your voice moves through this song. It's a very emotional performance -- perfect for this song. You really bring it home in the end. Great stuff!
