Recently, I purchased a ReMOTE LE which I never could get working with my system. So, this brings a certain delima. . . I could return the ReMOTE LE, possibly forfitting all abilities of MIDI use due to my systems inadequacies, or I could just start from scratch and take my system to the next level. Well, like a kid armed with a $10 bill in the candy isles of a gas station, its for me to step it on up-- because living past today is never a garuantee, and I want to be producing something I can sell on iTunes and make people smile.
Ok, enough of that, here's what I'm looking at:
-I just put in an ebay bid on a used Digidesign 002, in doing so, making me no longer Cubase dependent and make me one of those anoying ProTools users who is always trying to downgrade your SX3.
-VOX mic. . . I'm currently using a "Project Studios B3" Condensor. It does not pic up the warmth I am told that my live voice has. . . I end up playing with the EQ for days. Would a better mic fix the tin in the recording voice. . . should I dampen the walls with old quilts. . .? I don't know the answer, but I want to fix it.
-New Computer. . . a recording buddy of mine is in IT (not the movie) and he makes an amazing, recording specified computer on the cheap. He says, I'll end up with a duel core AMD, 4 gigs ram,optical ins/outs (want to learn more about that one), firewire, yadda yadda-- the rest is giberish past that. I'm also definitely moving towards side by side LCDs. . . some of those plug-ins, like EZDrummer, can be incredibly space consuming with its drag-and-drop utility. What else should I make sure I have on this machine, besides a quiet HD and shell?
I know I want to go to the digi 2, hence the bid, but I am looking for the end result. . . what else can I do to ensure that my vocal recordings are going to be impecable (besides having a vocal talent). I've been able to trick the guitar tracks into sounding good via duplication of tracks, panning, and eq tweeking to give it that dynamic, full effect.
Any advice out there for me? This is a big upgrade and to be honest I'm a little nervous.
