Well a little unusual to find all this "DAW setup" discussion over in this forum. I do think I saw someone suggest this be moved to the Off-Topic so this could be really worked out. Shame it hasn't been the song and vocals show a lot of promise and talent - but the vocals and not set right in the mix. Which is what Song_man can hear himself. I am sure the issues with Reapear and your computer (of which you never provide details) could be worked out. Heck we have had folks literally login remotely to newbees machines (ala Teamviewer) to do the necessary configurations.

Unfortunately Mr_Songman does not seem to be inclinded to invest the time and effort to bring the power of a DAW to solve the problem - I don't mean that critically, it just ain't for everyone . I think You did suggest going to a pro-shop to record and I agree, they will do wonders with your talent.

Good luck.

Martin,

What are the specifications of your computer, what operating system do you use, and what soundcard is installed?

Regards,
Noel




Bingo, that is the right question!

Hi guys,

Just wish to apologise to one and all for not getting back to you sooner regarding all the helpful advice given in this thread.

Unfortunately I suffer from a Bipolar disorder which sometimes sends me into a deep dark state of despair that makes me shut myself away for varying periods of time.
This one hit me as I was already going through a frustrating time regarding my recording problems which may have exacerbated the nosedive. But I doubt it
They hit me with no rhyme or reason.

Anyway just wanted to let you know that I am grateful for all the help and advice given by all you great guys on here - and now that I'm raring to go again and back on top, I shall endeavour to do something with it.

I am still having problems but, as has been suggested, I shall direct my questions to the off topic forum as I'm sure you all have the knowledge that I sadly lack.

I have just ordered the M Audio Fast Track Pro, and I have been exploring and experimenting with Realband, which seems an overly complicated programme but that maybe because I'm not used to it.

The oh so perfect answer for me would be for PG to add 3 or 4 more Audio tracks to BIAB and I'd never need another DAW. I could do all I want in there!!

Although I did purchase Reaper I have still had no success getting any sound out of it - but I will try and deal with that on the proper forum - where I shall list the specs of my machine!!

Thank you all once again for taking the time to help - I am truly grateful. If anyone can get me up and recording, it's you guys.

Thanks again!!

Martin

The recording is great. It's a perfect snapshot of you performing this song.

The song is great. I love everything about it. But I really love the lyrics. You really hit the nail on the head.

It's my kind of song. It's something I wish I could write.

Great work and I dig your voice too.
a new fan, Wayne,

Another great song from the Songman! Again super lyrics and mix. Personally I wouldn’t change a thing.

I agree with you about mixing. That is the hardest part of the process for me. I would rather just play! Alas I don’t have a lot of money so I must do everything myself. Based on your last two upload it appears that you have a very good handle on mixing.

My advice about DAWs is to pick the one you want and stick to it until you master it. That hardest part about a DAW is setting your computer up with the right drivers, buffer sizes, etc.. However once that is done you do not have to worry about it.

MarioD is right. I just switched over to cubase 5 from a tascam 2488 and after getting things set up with the right drivers etc I am quite happy. Very nice song by the way. I like your voice and it certainly suits the song. Well done

Cheers

Nels

Hi Wayne,

Thank you for those kind words - very glad you liked it.

I've just been listening to your stuff on Soundclick - and you blew me way!

As for my song being something you wished you could write - you can. And then some!!

Songs like Night After Night, I'll Get Us Through and Alone In This Room are superb!! I just love them.

Anyone on here who hasn't heard them, take a listen!!!

Great songwriting!!

A new fan.

Martin

Hi Mario,

Wow - what can I say but - thanks a whole bunch!!

Regarding a DAW I've taken the advice of Noel - who has been soooo helpful and patient with me - and I'm exploring the mysteries of Reaper.

You're right about the drivers and such. It's taken me a week just to get sound out of the blasted thing lol!!

Also just ordered the M Audio Fast Track Pro which I'm hoping will set me on my way!! Fingers crossed!

I'm sure you'll come across many of my questions and cries for help on the other Forums on here in due course!!

All the best

Martin
