It's some time since we were limited to 8 track recorders for making copies of the music we create. The 1990s saw the beginning of the home computer studio, and since then everything just gets tighter and more like the professional touch than last time. Of course those clever sonic scientists always make the highest of hi-tech only available to those who can fork out for it, but these days, the differences generally lay with the experts who use them. The stuff that makes the recording, and allows us to make a really good one, is as good as it was for so many artist prior to now in the studio that what we get at home may as well be the best. Let's not count sprinkles here.
Smart phones and tablets are the new home computer, although many of us still own and enjoy larger devices, the truth of the data shows that each new generation of digital pioneers are choosing to work on their palm-held screen. maybe a fad, maybe a trend, possibly a progression into future reality of bye bye desktop but we will just have to wait and see.
IK Multimedia are a forerunner in the world of smartphone studio software, and rather than trying to copy out their words, I've linked to their RSS below. Their ever reaching scope has pretty much any music recording artist's needs covered. They just keep making more stuff, I have noticed.
Another thing worth noting for musicians is that Shaw Academy are still giving out limited free courses with their expert tutors, and music is well and truly part of their curriculum. It is really worth popping over and signing up to take a short few lessons over a couple of months. They only ask for an hour and a bit two nights a week at most, and once you're done, you will know a lot more about music (or what ever you choose) than you did before. Certificates are available for a small cost. But we don't all need one of those.
