Early this month for my birthday I received a lovely condenser microphone, an audiogram and a bouquet of wires XLR, speaker, adaptors, two Y's and a female coupler. Actually I ordered the microphone first, but ordered the XLR cable later because I am such a newbie this is my first condenser microphone and I didn't know what wire to purchase. There was a lot of waiting after I ordered all the wires because my town doesn't have a radioshack. The wires came in 6 shipments! That is a lot of shipments for just a few wires.
I learned why it takes time to set things up. I unwrapped all my wires and hooked them to the microphone, audiogram, keyboard, my $10 speakers, my computer. Everything fits! Yeah! For my audio interface I downloaded the latest driver. The next day the computer did the audio configuration with the driver. Yeah! I was thrilled. I installed the Cubase, but the software never allowed me to try the actual application. I installed the elicenser only to learn I couldn't find the soft license for Cubase.
I frantically searched for that licenece! It is nowhere!
It is near the end of the month. I made my own maracas out of eggs. I can't wait any longer so I make my first recording using audacity then adding amplifier effects, flanger, and reverb to my 3 egg maracas recording with LMMS software. 6%20egg%20maracas%20spin.mp3
