I'm on my 3rd listen. I like this. The vocals are awesome and the guitarwork is well recorded - nicely spaced out, haunting sound from the right.  :clap:

Ok here is the story where I live there are a lot retired Musicians and every other Monday we have a community center set up with gear and everyone comes and plays. One week to make things interesting everybody had a week to come up with a two chord song. This the song me and partner Dave came up with who would thought you could do a whole song with Em and C\

Don't use a lot of plugin anymore  usually a muti band compressor to level out then like you mix to the car or crappy speakers, I have a older version of T-Racks Johnny gave me it is good but take a lot computer power. I had a copy of Nectar Izotope from the site years ago loved it but when the old computer crashed lost the activation codes. I have never been happy with the guitar tones was using Line Six or a GNX3, The new Zoom Unit has fixed that I got the Zoom 3xn and have been happy with it just taking the time to build what patches I need and want

I have an older version of EZ Drummer that I sometimes use but I don't normally have the time to build up everything from scratch like I used to. Either I use awesome, complete backers or work with someone who hammered those tracks out already for the project.

You produce really good sounding tracks, Tim. What plugins do you use or maybe I should phrase it as how do you master your final mix before you call it complete? I literally use a product called Final Mix and then I take result of the mixdown and play it though shit speakers (sometimes just using the speakers in my tablet) and it it sounds somewhat good through that shit I just know it sounds good through proper speakers. LOL  :D

I have been Tweaking stuff Interface is a TASCAM 1200, While I have a line 6 Variax and Pod . I just bought a Zoom 3nx to replace the old GNX3.  Sonar Drums or more recently digitek pedal you play and teach it the parts and it plays drums and bass. This has been a great help as I suck at drum programing.

Instead of adding to a long dead thread of the original, I've created a new topic to discuss what you are using to lay the music down today.

I've got the most compact and concise setup ever now - I'm basically plugging a guitar into a USB audio interface (You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login) and capturing everything into You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. Instead of micing up and amp or recording via a modeling amp or sim, I now use You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. That's pretty much it.

Say you just beginning and want to record your playing and sound amazing doing so, here's how you can do it for cheap...

There is a perfectly good, free version of Tracktion that you can use here - You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

If you don't want to pay for Scuffham S-Gear, there's a decent alternative in You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

If you search the web you can find plenty of free VST plugins to use in Tracktion.

So now tell us what's in YOUR studio...

I've long replaced Ozone with Tracktion Final Mix.

Maybe not as fancy as Ozone but it does the job very well for a fraction of the cost.

Yeah, I downloaded that and the latest one.  Installed both.  Form first play around, I didn't see much difference between the two.

I'll no doubt buy the latest, but I need to play around with the free one first to make sure it makes sense to me.

However, your suggestions were always spot on, so I can't see any reason why I wouldn't use it.

Just need to get back into doing hundreds of takes again, as that is where the improvement in the quality is.

Then try to remember what I used to do with VST plugins and Ozone during mixing...
