Great advise! Be advised that if your going to use these delay affects and ambience etc. a CPU with a GHz value closer to 2 and a memory greater then 1 GB is a must have for these layered sounds. Anything close or less then these values you will may end up with a broken sound or pieces of missing audio information. A similar CPU and Memory simply can't keep up. I learned the hard way.
Quick article of interest! From Electronic Musician magazine...
I know about panning to place sounds in a stereo field, but I’d like my mixes to have more depth and a bigger soundstage. I keep reading that analog consoles can provide a more open soundstage, and wonder if my problem is from doing in-the-box mixes. Will adding an analog console really make that much difference? If so, can you recommend a model?

Trimming high frequencies ever so slightly will also place sounds more in the “back” of the mix. For example, if the mix includes background singers and a lead singer, make the lead singer a little brighter; in addition, using less reverb on a lead vocal brings it more “up front” in relation to other sounds. As another example, trimming a tiny bit of highs from rhythmguitar parts and adding some subtle ambience will place them “behind” the lead guitar part. Centered, dry parts will be the closest to the listener.
Try a combination of panning, EQ, and ambience, and you should be able to create a more convincing soundstage no matter how you’re mixing!The Editors

Anyone using PreSonus AudioBox usb equipment?
This article on Latency got me interested in the brand. I presently use a Yamaha AudioGram6
Track down the book, Home Recording for Dummies. I discovered it at my local library. It will give you about a two headstart. The learning curve for recording is huge. I even considered enrolling in some courses in recording at an area community college before I read this book. Its made that much of an impact for me!
Nice Nick g pretty cool looking stuff.
Here's a few of the instruments I use on a regular basis when I record. I have a few different amps, as well as a Line6 Pod that I like to use in a pinch for decent and quick tones.
I need to "decorate" my current space a bit more. My last house had a great den for recording that was like a club, with a bar and the lighting. Soon.
Eagle%20Eye%20Studio.jpg This is my start in creating a recording space converting a bedroom in my house to a recording place. So far got guitars and stuff in place Audio interface coming from Sweetwater this week then setting up DAW and laptop and monitors this is my first venture down this road who knows what the future holds.
Better late than never, I uploaded a Christmas song that I just couldn't get ready in time for the Holiday this year. Anyway, it's on my home page, and it is called "Jingle Bells - Singing Chickens". I figured if the dogs can sing this song every year, then the chickens should be able to get in on the action, too! LOL Enjoy!
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. :)
