I am by no means an expert on the subject, but it has finally been my fate to attempt it. I’ll be able to report the full results when the dubplates come in, but until then, here’s my approach.
Brisbane covers band CRISIS recorded a couple of tracks in the studio over the weekend. It was a great opportunity for me to hang out with some fine musos, and shakedown the spanking new Cubase 6 setup at the same time. Which, unusually for a new software and hardware combination, seems to be working pretty smoothly so far. Thanks to Simon, Marty, Garry and Dan!
Here’s a snippet of “In The Midnight Hour”. Check out that first-take vocal from Marty.[audio:http://bencraven.com/blogposts/20110323_crisis/20110328_crisis_in_the_midnight_hour_blog.mp3]
