 A kingdom being born. So this song indicates a transitional state. I appreciate any suggestions. I didn't make this loud. I might not have made it loud enough. I'm trying to get a feel for what is a…Continue

"I ended up buying the Spitfire Albion One library. Time will tell if I will use it. I hear good reviews on it as the sort of "staple" library from Spitfire. We'll see. I had to buy another SSD to store it on since it's like 55gb…"

Some DAW plug in Deals that might be too good to pass up

No this isn't spam or me trying to sell you anything. I've been recording for quite awhile and during that time you begin to see what's good and what isn't. During this process I sometimes come across daw plugins that are a bit better than the typical ones included for good prices. They all have my email and I get all of these deals or periodic sales when they come out. I'm simply passing this along to you to do what you will with. If you intended to buy any of thesesaving 30-50% might be…See More

I don't attempt to market any of my music, although I have released a guitar CD. I play guitar, piano, bouzouki, harmonica, and am an aspiring violinist.
