Recording Music Digitally: Your Chance to Shine!
Hey boyz and galz.
I know we've got some musicians around here, and that suits me, because I need help. Up until now I've only ever used two types of music recording software: Cakewalk Guitar Tracks Pro 2, and Garageband.
The computer on which I recorded most of my songs, with Cakewalk, got fried. Bye bye, etc. But now that I have a Mac, and a good one, I've been using Garageband, which is decent but not superb. For one thing, it's pretty basic, which was fine until now since I didn't do anything particularly sophisticated with my songs. But lately it's been annoying the hell out of me. The sound gets crappy quickly, and I don't think it's my drivers. I'm just not sure how to make the sound less poor, especially since it was working so well for a while.
Anyway. I've been trying my hand at Ableton Live 8, which seems fantastic but thoroughly complicated. Does anyone have any experience with this program, and if so, would you be willing to help me out with a few technical questions of a relatively basic nature? For instance, the most stupid and naive question possible: if you download the Ableton Live Intro package to try it out, it says you get a load of loops and samples; but where the hell do you find those? I can't locate them anywhere on my hard drive.
Also, if you've got recordings of your band's music, post a link here if you like, because I'm always curious to see what other Culties are up to.
thanks for sharing.blackhawk tactical pants.
