I tested a pack of cassettes that I bought on Ebay a while back. Here’s what I tried.
It’s summer and I want to let you know what I’m looking at doing in the next couple of months
For the final mixdown of the song, I used my digital Tascam DP32SD, it was an obvious choice to get the best sound possible.
This is the week! Have you finished and released your song? I have and it’ll be available worldwide on Thursday! Can’t wait to send it around!
Today’s video is about doubling vocals. I had someone ask about it so I did a video about it:
Today’s video is about how I did the backing vocals on the 4 track. It’s always tough because you need to think ahead on how everything is going to come together…

I’ve been reading a lot of questions about using effects on different systems and decided I wanted to help out where I could. I made the following video showing how to set up effects on various devices from amplifiers and mixers to using them while recording.

As you know, I’m part of a 4-track recording challenge, write a song and record it with your 4-track. I’m currently working on the scratch track and I wanted to shared my progress with you all:
