January 2019

Hey everyone and Happy New Year!

January has been a quiet month for me. I haven't really been out playing anywhere, but I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things soon. I've spend the first few weeks of the year learning some new recording software at home. I really like what I'm dealing with now that I'm starting to get the hang of things. I've been a ProTools guy for a long time, but the way things are right now, i.e. monthly subscription fees, upgrade fees, software bugs, and a a few other things have really gotten to me. I decided to give Apple's Logic X Pro a try after a friend suggested it, and so far, I like what I see. It's similar to ProTools in many ways, though in my opinion, it is a little more user friendly. Of course I already have the advantage of knowing the basics due to my experience with ProTools. I'm sure I could write a whole blog on the subject, and maybe that's not a bad idea! But for now, want to say at least this... ProTools is awesome and I think a studio with an engineer/producer at the helm, it is a great option and a way to go. But for the musician at home who isn't a trained ProTools engineer, Logic X Pro is awesome. Logic is a musician's recording software, and ProTools is an engineer's DAW. Logic is just as good in my opinion and for a one time price of $199, hard to beat in value.

Anyway, I might pop in and do a few open mics over the next week or two. If and when I do, I will most likely post last minute on facebook. Till next month (which is right around the corner)...
