I wish I were one of those people who wrote songs quickly. But I’m not. So it takes me a great deal of time to find out what the song is.

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

Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 (2nd Gen) USB Audio Interface
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 Behringer Onyx. I got the Onyx because I used to run a Mackie... -- read post

About Homemade Music

About Homemade Music
Homemade Music was started by GAJOOB Magazine's Bryan Baker (that's me) in 1999. At that time I wanted to have a niche site filled with albums by the home recording artists I was featuring in GAJOOB. It was fun for a while, but real life took a turn and I took a few years away from music to pick up the pieces. At least as many as I could. I'm still trying to do that, to be honest. Now I've picked up this piece and I'm spending more time here. To me, Homemade Music is just something I love... -- read post

Finding Old Lyric Scraps

Finding Old Lyric Scraps
This morning I was looking for my clipboard so I could fill out a jury notice I received in the mail yesterday. It was on top of a stack of old mail which is sitting on a table in my bedroom which holds a rack of old outboard effects and whatnot. Clipped to the clipboard is roughly 25 sheets of ruled paper, the top paper consisting of the start of a song; one verse (pictured). The lyric reads: So sad, so sadI'm so sadDon't know if ICan be the same againOh, please, Lord, send him back... -- read post

This is a song I originally created on 4-track on my own. One of those things you come up with that sounds like it might have some promise so you file it away for a later day. I don't do that often, but that was one of those times. Later, I was...

Instrument Profiles

As time allows we'll add instruments, effects and things that apply here to this list. The idea is that with a HMM account you can can tag your music uploads with instruments and track the usage as well as see what others are doing with your favorite synth, etc.
 

Imagination is the key to my lyrics. The rest is painted with a little science fiction.
