glorioustimes asked:

Greetings from Okinawa! I've been playing bass for ~13 years and I'm trying to do something new for me. I've recorded with bands in basements and in studios before but I've never done it myself. I'm a Marine stationed out here for the next three years and I'll most likely not find a band let alone even have anyone jam with or even talk to about bass. Long story short - I want to start recording in my apartment. What are some basic tips? Laptop vs computer, software, hardware, etc. Thanks!

Hello!

Thanks for messaging us! Marine eh, wow! Devotion! We’d love a submission of you in uniform with your bass!

Some good tips for home recording:

Audacity is free recording software that’s on a professional level, it’s so easy to use.

Audio interfaces are the easiest way to record.

Don’t underestimate the fact that it’s still hard work, something usually doesn’t go right the first time, it takes time to get the right track and to get it mixed to satisfactory standard to make it sound good through 2 speakers

Take your time, concentrate listen for that right timed track, you’ll know when you’ve got it

In ear earphones are really good for hearing the low end and feeling every note, but that’s personal preference

Sorry these are abit bland but off the top off my head that’s also can think of! Anymore questions feel free to message us again and we’ll be happy to help you out!

Cheers!

Dear Stupid Hoe & Small dick prick

Is it the “singer” who gets the money,fame and glory with the talent? Or is it the sessionist musicians backing him/her? Most of you musicians ain’t thick. You know what a real musician is and what real talent is. And you know it definitely ain’t this or Nicki Minaj. Like this comment for any band or real true talent over Nicki Minaj or Justin Bieber shitting in my ear ANYDAY.
