I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here, what with being busy as hell on writing projects and all, but in early January my desktop PC keeled over in a flaming ball of computer death, shards of shrapnel flying around the living room like a Tom Hanks/Stephen Spielberg production. This was unfortunate for many reasons, one of the biggest (for me) being that I was right in the middle of a major music project. My first X-Sweet record in three years, specifically, and hopefully the best I’ve done so far.
I’ve been writing a lot of music lately. Not the sprawling guitar soundscapes I love to do, but traditional songs with, like, singing and stuff. And I’d like to keep doing it.
But I don’t record with the trusty TASCAM Porta 7 anymore, I record right to the PC … and that means I need a PC in order to record.
And I need to record music if I want to retain some semblance of sanity.
Thankfully, a new PC is on its way. Few more weeks and I’ll be all set. And that’s the greatest news in the history of great news. Better even than the news that the war (pick one) is over.
Really, it is.
