Home Recording Software

April 20, 2010 Leave a comment
Whithin 10 years, home recording studio software had come a long way from what it once was. There have been too many ¬†improvements to any kind of effect and sampling technology that you can imagine. Ten years ago, we’re only getting started at what we can do and now it’s 10 times better!
This is great because superior systems are now about an arm and a let less and we can truely put out quality music. Now the only thing holding us back is our own songwriting and recording talent.
Here are 3 things that have been greatly improved in the last 10 years:
More Tracks – You can run more than just 24 tracks now. There were a few software packages that let you have what’s called “virtual tracks” that let you run more than 24, but if your RAM wasn’t to par, you could only run virtual tracks.Now computers come with an excess of 1 gigabite or more of ram. Plenty to get your point across in your song.
In fact, you can run as many tracks as your computer system has processor speed and ram for. Very cool.
Better Effects – Effects 10 years ago was amazing, but most of the time, you would have to shell out a lot of money to get those amazing effects. Well fast-forward 10 years, and a lot of those crazy effects are no further than a Yahoo search. And a lot of them are free. It’s crazy, I know, but they are no cost.
You can find , even free virtual amp heads for you guitar players (myself included).
Virtual Instruments – We didn’t have very many virtual instruments back in the day, and the ones we did have was NOT free. But you can do a Google search for “free VSTI’s” without quotes and find some excellant virtual instruments. My favorite is Synth 1 It’s patterned after a famous Nord keyboard (Nord Lead 2). Imagine having that keyboard for free. Amazing. And I use it all the time and I recommend you at least try it out.
Home recording studio software has indeed came a long way, but I’d like to think of what it will be like in the next 10 years. I can only imagine how great it will be.
