Recording Your Music

Hot Mix

When it comes to recording your own music, your options are somewhat limited. Most of your choices will be both expensive and time consuming. For example, you could pay a sound engineer in a recording studio to track, mix and master your music. This quickly becomes pricey, but the end product is great sounding audio. Alternatively, you could purchase the tools and software necessary to set up a small home-studio. The equipment you need for this includes a computer, recording software, a recording interface (this is the hardware you use to connect your instrument or mic to your computer), and an array of microphones and cables. This too can become expensive if you don’t already have some of the required tools. Another disadvantage to this approach is if you don’t have experience using recording software, it’s likely that you’ll spend a lot more time learning how to record than you will actually recording.

It’s been a month since we returned from SXSW, but our team is still raving about Evolfo Doofeht’s performance at our rooftop showcase in Austin.  The eclectic blend of musicians blew us away with their set of ‘gypsy-funk’ tunes that had the crowd on their feet. Lucky for me, I got to meet the guys the day before and see their set at the ninth annual Berklee SXSW Party.  It only took 20 minutes to turn me into a fan!

We are so pleased to have been a part of the Camp Barnabas Half Marathon over the weekend. It was an incredible event, with over 600 runners in attendance. The race aimed to raise awareness and money for Camp Barnabas, a summer retreat for those with special needs and chronic illnesses. The sidewalks were bursting with excitement and cheering from the thousands of spectators who showed up to watch. These runners didn’t let a little spring rain slow them down either, they went full steam to help this deserving cause.

To keep everyone on their feet and having a good time, we enlisted the services of some local talent, and they knocked it out of the park! To learn more about Camp Barnabas, we sat down with one of the Event Organizers, Kylie Wright. Here is what she had to say…
