    Sometimes Im thinking hard on selling it all, weird at 57...things seem less "energetic" to record but the gear is more interesting than using it? I think I started recording really in 79..80 with the Tascam 144....now its 40yrs later? yikes?
    I guess its like being an old fart and finally getting the red sports car trying to be 20?


    Anyway, I can hear something in the expensive mic and strip, but pretend I paid MSRP, its a $3200 combo.
    Lets say I paid MSRP for a cheap LDC MXL and a interface with plugins....with my skill , the limiting factor ,
    my homegrown weed-music still hasn't really advanced since 1982. its still fun to create some sounds and noise, but
    the gear isn't like "wow! I sound $3000 times better!"
    I started recording using a Teac reel to reel, a Radio Shack mixer and a cassette deck. I would record a drum machine and bass to the reel to reel, then I would play guitar and vocals along with the recording mixed down through the mixer into a cassette deck. All directly plugged in. From there I went to a Fostex four track and things just spiraled downward. These days I have a dedicated recording rig with more power and plugs than I'll ever need and I don't even give recording a thought. I keep telling myself if I ever fall off a ladder and break a hip at work,I'll use that time to create my "masterpiece".

    I want a Chiefs/Rams SuperBowl, but I'm guessing Saints/Pats. On paper it looks like a Chiefs win, but history has the Pats winning.

    LATER!!!!

    I didn’t really start recording until the digital era. I was in a singing group in the 90’s and we decided we wanted to cut a CD. We went to a local studio and paid $75 an hour. The guy was running a Pro Tools setup on some knd of Mac. We spent over $2000 for recording time, and ended up with something we weren’t thrilled with. Mostly because we didn’t do as many retakes and patches as we should have because... we’ll because we were paying $75 an hour.

    We ended up printing 1,000 CDs and sold quite alot of them at $10 each. Enough to more than get our money back. I said to the boys that rather than spend the money on more recording time, if they would like invest it in recording software and equipment instead, i felt I could learn to do it. Having watched the Pro Tools guy, it didn’t seem all that hard. Word proceesing for notes. Lol.

    Anyway FF and we ended up buying Cakewalk 9, a mixing board, an 8 channel interface, a headphone amp, (we already owned microphones), and I joined HR.com where the kind people here assisted me in learning how to use all that shit.

    We ended up recording a 2nd CD. It was better than the first, since we now had unlimited recording time. It also was about then that I realized that unlimited recording time, while very helpful toward making a professional recording, was just one piece. Unfortunately, talent was also still a necessary ingredient.

    The problem is the musician's have unlimited time, but the guy doing the mixing and editing has to put in so much time above and beyond that. I spent a lot of time figuring out how to do all this recording stuff and if I have any spare time it's going to be recording ME. I just laugh when people ask me to record them as if it's fun for me.

    In my case I sort of volunteered for it. It was somewhat fun at first, but got old pretty fast. I’d do all the same work as the rest of them when recording, and then put 4 times as much time into the mixing/mastering.

    Making us bozos sound good is WORK! Lol.

    Make that 0 for 2.

    Well at least we got two pretty good games. Seems like the Pats are both good AND lucky.

    I'll root for the Rams... but my give -a-shit meter is to 40%. I got to say the Patriots are so solid they are almost too good, too perfect.
    Ive only seen them play twice this year. The Rams Ive seen 3 times and they will play to the end, relentlessly and that paid off Sunday.
    But the Patriots seem to be 100% Q1 through to Q4.... I don't see how they can lose.


    Chiefs got beat by the Rams on turkey-day... so maybe this is a more interesting game somehow, Rams and Patriots?

    Glad I didn't watch the first game because I was too busy, because it would have ruined my day. The 2nd was a good game, and since I didn't have a dog in the race it was fun to watch the kid against the old man. It's amazing how you can watch the oldest person to play QB in a playoff and still just know what's going to happen. Jeez, 41 in the NFL - that's like 85 in couch potato years, at least. Gives me some hope
