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

Getting Your Homemade Recordings on Apple Music and Elsewhere in 2019

Getting Your Homemade Recordings on Apple Music and Elsewhere in 2019
I've essentially been away from music promotion for several years after having been involved by way of publishing a magazine and music website from 1987 to now. I haven't been actively reviewing new music for many years, although I've been working on developing music websites and publishing (mostly) archival content as time allows between the day job. From time to time a new album crosses my path, but I've not been exposed to music PR for a long while now. Over the last year or so, I've put... -- 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 began life while playing around with a newly download freeware synth plugin called Podolski which is made by the folks at u-he. After coming up with the initial pad track I tried a couple acoustic guitars mostly split left and right......

Bryan Baker: guitars, bass, synthesizers, drum programming, vocals

This song started when Joe Maki was visiting from Connecticut and we were trying to get back into recording like the old days. I'd just started playing around with recording apps on iPad and we probably spent more time messing than playing,...

Bryan Baker: guitar, vocal; Joe Maki: guitar.

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...

You can't make up anything anymore. The world itself is a satire. All you're doing is recording it.

In some of the greatest recordings ever made, the performance is a part of the recording. Dylan's 'Rainy Day Women No. 12 and 35' is all about the esthetic of that performance. You can hear the room.
