Quote of the Day

“I can spend all evening goofing around in my studio, getting the right sound. Then the next day, I go in and nail it. If you’re of that mind, if you want to do it yourself, I think it’s a good idea to have your own studio.”- Michael Hedges

THE SONGWRITER’S TOOL KIT
In a recent Reader Survey, we confirmed that as in past years, a strong majority of our readers are songwriters who want to make the best recordings of their ideas. In addition to our monthly features that are songwriter-friendly, every May we do our best to bring an extra-large serving of new ideas and tried-and-true techniques to the table, and this issue is no different... it’s just bigger and fuller than ever!

In this issue we give you a bird’s-eye view of a typical songwriter’s recording rig and explain what tools are needed to get ideas into a usable form quickly and conveniently. We take you to the South By Southwest music festival in Austin, walk you through project budgeting, and introduce cool new ways to build up song ideas -- even starting with a naked vocal performance! Our new series, Walking Tour, starts with Mackie Tracktion and takes you through the basics of finding your way around this unusual DAW. And we provide online resources, tales from the trenches, and much more, all aimed at helping your songwriting turn into beautiful music.

All this plus our monthly columns, Song Production in Pro Tools with Mark Hornsby, Readers’ Tapes with Marty Peters, and much more. Grab your tools and start writing—the May Recording will show you how!
