my first hardware multitracked recording

Post by oscillik » Sat Jun 16, 2007 7:29 pm

hey everyone.

since i got my Yamaha AW4416 a couple of weeks ago i've been trying to get my head around it all, and i think i'm doing pretty well. so much so that i've come up with a draft of a new track, by me, for your listening pleasure and constructive criticism.

any comments would be great :)

thanks!

i like all the sounds in this song, and its mixed quite well. i would prefare the lead at the start to be a bit simpler in terms of the notes being played though, a bit too random i think. all in all its good s**t . nice drums too

Hey oscilik, got a question.
I've been thinking for a while to record with a hardware multitracker instead of a computer. I was wondering how you find the experience, and if you had experience with a computer DAW, how do you compare?

Thanks

well you got enough analog gear to justify having a hardware recorder, so you might as well go the next step. It sounds really good from what I am hearing. Very good to be more specific.

for the first song, did you get that title from THX 1138? God I love that movie.

using hardware is a personal preference. i LOVE being able to actual use something, rather than clicking on the screen with a mouse. having said that though, using hardware is a much more drawn out process, and of course editing is limited.

i've used Cubase, and Digital Performer so i have used computer based audio recording :) I've been using my Atari as my main MIDI sequencer
