Prepping the Musical Gear

Last night I unfolded the keyboard stand, found a couple spare boards I’d not been using, and set up my smaller keyboards and laptop upon it. I wanted to start preparing for Record Producing Month, which is now less than two weeks away.

All the connections worked. I had to fiddle with the configurations of some of my software. It’s been four years since I’ve actively recorded anything, and the hardware did change a bit.

I created my first demo file, and threw together some sample sounds. I didn’t record any actual material. My purpose was to create some textures so I could begin to understand the soundscape, the feel of the new album.

There were some amazing things I heard last night.

I’ll share more as this project proceeds.
