Hello allÖ.

Iíve posted this comment here because Iím not sure where to put it but I think under general is probably ok.

Iíve downloaded Audacity and Reaper and have looked at both programs; bought and set up my audio interface, hooked up my guitar and microphone and began a recording.

Of course I didnít like what I got because I havenít gone through that initial learning curve, to figure out how to get a good sound out of these programs.

Frankly, Iíve had to learn several Ďlargeí software packages in my life and am not interested in learning a whole lot moreÖ hehe. (at least not immediately) I will learn this recording software as I get time but until then I want to record and promote my songs which is really what I am here for. That brings me to the purpose of this post.

Iíve listened to many of the tunes you all posted on the MP3 thread and am really impressed with the recordings that Iíve heard. I was wondering if any of you take on demo work or would be interested in laying down some basic rhythm and drum tracks for some of my songs?

If this can be done in Reaper then I can load your file at my home and ad vocals or whatever additional things I feel might work. This way I can spend most my time writing and not learning how to be a recording engineer. (I hope anyway)

I donít have any idea what the cost would be for this sort of thing but if any of you guys are interested or have any suggestions, please send me a PM about your thoughts and maybe we can chat about it. Thanks

Bigmo

Well,
I still use a 4 Track Cassette to record my basic demos. Don't think you can get them anymore.

On some of my demos I have used demo services. One is J. Gale Kilgore at http://www.eyeball-records.com I don't have any software to record with but I assume you pick a style you want to use and open it and hit record and start. Probaby reading the instructions, usually included with the Software will help. You will usually find it by clicking on start, go to the program and see the other tabs that open. One should be the instructions.

you should check out EZdrummer or Addictive Drums, which you can likely buy for the cost of one demo. Then you can set up your own rythm tracks. If you post what you are doing and ask for feedback, then folks can help you tweak / work with the program.
