I've been wanting to record a collection of my songs for quite some time now.
I have everything I need to create a beautifully polished album right here in my home studio, but over time - I've noticed how easy it's been for me to get caught up in all of the "bells & whistles" of a recording program.
In my case...Logic Pro.
Reverbs, compression, delays, EQ's, miking techniques, a million software plug-ins etc...
It's SO easy to lose sight of simply capturing a great performance.
So I've decided to scale way back on the "bells & whistles" and focus 100% on capturing these songs in an authentic, emotive, and real way.
I wanna be versatile, and most importantly -
I REALLY like the idea of "location recordings". I wanna be able to record anywhere at any time.
So... My Super Simple Set-Up:
1. Zoom H2
2. Zoom "HandyRecorder" app
I'll toss 'em in my bag and take 'em with me wherever I go!
Well...my guitar may not fit :)
That's it for now!
I'd better get at it.
Until next time...
