Well after a good 10 years, Ive replaced my trust old condenser mic. No more static or poor recording quality, hooray! The old one was a USB mic and I’ve gotten a bit cocky and bought an interface with this one so I can record mandolin (yey!) and guitars! The only problem is that it will probably take me another 10 years to figure out how to use it properly! Ha! I’m not that tech savvy as you can probably tell!
When I start recording myself, time just seems to speed up and I can never find the perfect mix or sound and end up in a downward spiral at 4am. Not great if you’re working to a deadline or have to be up early the next day. I’m not a morning person either by the way!
I feel like I’m turning a corner though, fingers crossed everything is falling in to place!
Yesterday, I shared a new video of a new song called ‘Without Me’. I wrote about the story from the perspective of the person who’s left behind. It just seemed like a story thats hardly been told. You can watch it here…
The last song ever to be recorded on my old mic!
If you’re a budding producer or tech wizard and have any tips, then please throw some advice my way! (If it sounds like I’m begging, I AM! I can use all the help I can get!)
Tomorrow, I’m off to York for one night to explore! But when I’m back, the first thing I’m going to do is re-record Yours and add some little extra bits and that will be the start of my next EP! I think this time round, my sound will have changed and be more piano based but we’ll see, who knows what might come out in the process! Which of the new songs do you want to see on it? I’d love to know!
Have a lovely Easter break everyone! Eat loads of chocolate and spend loads of time with the ones you love, its the only way to do it!
Thanks for reading,
