I've been doing a lot of weeding out VSTs and arriving at a solid arsenal and Sean Divine's video about his top 10 really helped me. He's using Logic like me, but this should be helpful whatever the DAW you're using.

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 to do. I love making a good song and I love just playing around and exploring without structure. I also love connecting with other people into recording and collaborating on things.
So that's sort of what this site will be about -- just a place to hang out and play around with creating music. There's already a lot of cool things we can do. Share video, post stems or loops maybe; and songs of course. I'll be blogging and vlogging. Personally, I've never gone too far into the technical details of software, DAWs, MIDI and all that. I just go by feel. But if you're into technical you can get on a box here and talk shop as much as you like. It's all good. I do like to read about it all.
So please join in if you're home recording. I guess most musicians are these days. It's now the thing. It came true. Home recording killed the music industry. But now it's something different and I think it could be for the better if we decide to make it better.
