Callie and Matt,
One thing that is bouncing around in different forums repetitively that I wish pro users could put to bed forever on some post or location somewhere on this board or website is whether Real Tracks (particularly audiophile) are like "recording" or "recording studio quality" or "can you have a million dollar recording studio" using Real Tracks.
The answer from me and many other pro users is YES, YES, YES, YES and YES, and one more time YES.
Plus, let's think about cost and the value of having the patience to learn how to really use Real Tracks and learn how to mix and master with them in a DAW.
The AVERAGE rate around here in the south for a reasonable "album" production song with a few studio musicians is about $2,000 PER SONG. I see artists shell out 20 grand for an album all the time--a few guitars, some vocals, drums, etc.
20 grand. Just like that.
I swear to heaven there are people on this forum who can take Real Tracks and Real Drums and add their own vocals and instrumentation and mixing and mastering skills in a good home studio and they sound better than stuff coming out of studios.
Because Real Tracks are just that: REAL TRACKS. Especially audiophile. Wav form tracks perfectly played. Pretty much what you would get in a studio after 8 hours if your people know how to play.
And YES, for the 100th time you can make an album with Band in a Box tracks.
Just wanted to see if I could point that out for the 101th time if Matt's post is going to become a sticky.
BIAB is not just a practice tool anymore.
YOU CAN MAKE AN ALBUM WITH IT AND IT DOES NOT COST 20 GRAND.
There, I can rest now.https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/americana/id1294634821
