I'm almost 60. My digital recorder is a stand alone unit and it's not a computer although it acts like one. My major problem is finding the time to work on stuff. Being OCD and very picky about what I like takes a lot of time.
I'm 67, we (baby boomers) invented the personal computer...you kids have it to easy. :)
Sometimes I feel to old. I am 32. The computer programs I used to use will working security/servailence don't even compare. That Cubas Ai5 is really versatile with a ton of features. And it allows you, as a composer or producer, to use sound and textures in your music with instruments that you may have never even touched in real life. But there is quite a learning curve. Wish I had more time to spend on it. I have had this song in the works now for over a month and for the last three weeks I have been wanting to add a cello part to it. Maybe this weekend. I just discovered three weeks ago how to do it.
Yes, but i have been using Adobe Audition since it was CoolEdit 1.0. Various hardware comes with recording software,usually "lite" versions. I have Abelton and Cakewalk...which I don't bother with.. they are also geared towards "those who want to "create" music in a digital format" . Sequencers and Clips assembly is not creation now, is it :)
I'm too old to learn new interfaces.
Do that come this Cubas Ai5 as well?
i forgot to mention I'm using AudioGram 6. there are pix of it all wired up in my Photo Gallery,
Also...I use the Cubase Ai5. Don't care for it all that much I have used other programs, like Live Light 5, that are more geared towards that musician. Cubase tries to include those who want to "create" music in a digital format. Lots of sample instruments loop creation, synchronization etc. I am just diving into the extras now and maybe it will prove to be useful to me after all. I am still growing musically and want to be careful not to limit or label myself as this or that type of musician playing this or that type of music.
An Acer Aspire 1 serves as my CPU. Probably the very lowest speed capability that any one could tolerate. It works good for my needs. As long as I limit my effects to reason and only use stereo tracks when they can be most optimal. I then have a Yamaha Audiogram 3 USB Interface. I pair that with a MXL 990 Condenser mic. Great all around mic for a budget price. I bought this at a steel of a deal in a plastic case and they even thru in an MXL 991 pencil condenser for free. I use both mics regularly.
I have a Sigma rosewood dreadnaught, a Jumbo that I made myself while in luthery school and a Variax Line 6 modeling bass.
Check out my page on AcousticGuitarCommunity.com to hear some of my work with this set up.
My current Remote Studio is a temporary DAW setup outside my computer room due to the high noise level of 3 desktops. The two screens are actually connected via Windows 7 Remote Desktop Protocol to Adobe Audition 3 running in dual screen mode on one of my desktop computers.
Equipment includes Yamaha USB Interface, Behringer C-3 and B-5 condenser mics, Behringer Hum Buster and Phantom PSU. Ibanez Troubadour T-35 Acoustic amp with another Phantom PSU, Fender Mustang II Modeling Amp, Shure headphones for DAW monitoring, Sony headphones for Fender amp and a slew of XLR and TS cables.
Instruments include Seagull s6 Cedar (15yrs old), Seagull Amber Trails Mini-Jumbo ( read http://www.acousticguitarcommunity.com/group/SeagullAficionados/for...
for more on that), a 2013 Epiphone Les Paul Special II and two Yamaha PSR keyboards.
