TL;DR , new guy dribbles a bit then posts some original tracks @ https://soundcloud.com/matthew-vaugh
(Upon reading the forum stipulations again, I may be in the wrong place, with the absence of "Band-in-a-box" production or something, is this post still welcome?)
First post here, a little bit about me first, I'm a 23 year old from Australia, I wouldn't call my myself a musician due to no formal training, but still I'm no amateur, being comfortable with a variety of instruments (or music to say the least, different instruments play the same notes, just need a different technique to express em hey ^^) Strings and keys being my favorite.
This year I experimented with some recordings using an outdated GarageBand on a super old Mac, the quality isn't the best seeing as I didn't even have a real microphone (using the in-built microphone on the Mac) lends to some static fuzz. I used the electronic drum loops from Apple Loops as accompaniment to my multi-tracked recordings of bass, guitar, vocals and other instruments (Didgeridoo and Sitar can be found on a couple tracks.. https://soundcloud.com/matthew-vaugh/yesterday
) I didn't use many effects aside from a few "double-filter" effects on a few vocal and guitar tracks, everything else is quite raw, not being so tech-savvy on the production side of things and just kind of winging it.

All songs are written, played, recorded and produced by Myself.

Not sure if my post is on topic for the board, anyways, please have a listen and enjoy!
