Home Recording Studio/Stores For Musical Instruments

Stores For Musical Instruments    

Different people like to play different types of musical instruments. In fact, there are a wide range of instruments available today. A person can like the sound produced by any of these instruments. Each of these instruments is again found in a wide range of models, each differing in shape, size and cost. Hence, the choice of the right instrument is a little difficult.

All types of musical instruments that have existed for a long period of time can be found in a few musical instrument stores. These stores help to reflect the culture and tradition of the country by promoting the sale of the old musical instruments that people might have even forgotten about. Some of these instruments might be traditional and the others modern. All of these musical instruments can be found at the musical instrument stores.

Musical instrument stores are of two types – online and offline. Online stores refer to the stores for sale for musical instruments present on the internet. Purchasing from the online musical instrument stores is advisable because they have a wide range of models to show you. They even offer information regarding each model on their website. Hence, it becomes easy for you to read the information and choose the model that you want.

Another advantage about buying from online stores is that they offer musical instruments at prices less than that of the offline musical instrument stores. They can afford to give more discounts because they don’t have to bear the overhead costs associated with shop floor maintenance and employee salaries. Some of these stores also provide you a chance for return and replacement of your musical instruments, in case they are damaged or you don’t like them.

Secondly, you can also buy your musical instruments from an offline musical instrument store. This is the best thing to do if you are not very sure about giving your personal information on the internet to the musical instrument selling websites. This method is not so bad because the salespersons present in the store are usually experienced ones and they can guide you on matters relating to the type of musical instrument required for your level of expertise on that instrument.

Many musical instrument stores also give away free accessories when you buy musical instruments from them. These may include guitar amps, keyboard controllers, computer music hardware, headphones and headphone amps, covers, and many more.

Making Pro Tools Work FOr You

Making Pro Tools work for you and not against you is the focus this article is about. You can have all  the wings and dings and guitars and electronica instruments, yet if you don';t know how to setup the whole thing , it is a total waste of money and time. This is a point where you have to ask your self, do I need all this stuff for my one man band or even several member band. I have noticed that there are certain tools in Pro Tools 8.0 that I just don't use or will ever use at this point in my recording. Let me through into this article which is a great place for people like me who make tunes for fun and not a living. I have made a few dollars off this site and it only runs 10.00 a month. You get ratings and chart locations that tell you how well you are doing. It is a great avenue to see what others thing of your music. It is also a great avenue to see if your worth a darn.

 Back to what I was saying there are some tools in the program in Pro Tools that I will never use, and even though it is grat to have them avaibale to use, don't fret over them if you don;'t use them. To be quite honest I have this program running just good enough that I can mix master and cut a MP3. There is so much I don't know about this program, and that is what makes it so nice to be straight forward with you., mabee buying a book or listening to some of the online guides to Pro Tools will help you out where you are stuck in like editing , is my down fall, and this is so important to get the sound right. So study up on the program on occasion  to see what you can use and not use. Have a Rockin Day..8.8.2011

Pro Tools Recording in Pro Tools 9.0

Pro Tools Recording in Pro Tools 9.0

Pro Tools has come a long way with Pro Tools 9.0 and some new instruments to go with the package. If your not a Pro Tools user you need to jump on the band wagon and start looking into this product. It takes Recording by the arm and delivers a solid state digital sound of your music you like to record. It is a must have for musicians, and for home musicians there is no other better product. The crisp digital experience Pro Tools 8.0 offers to the home recording outfit, is the same that is used for major recording studios around the world.

Don’t take my word for it , but the little gizmo called the Fastrack and for only 66.00 at amazon you can be up and sounding like your favorite rock band. It is a cheap price to Garage Band and other recording utilities to see if it is for you at first. I recommend this pro tools to everyone I know that wants to get into making mp3’s for a living and you can with the internet as I have. Take a chance on Fast Track for a cheap price and hear the technology and see the software that should sell for thousands of dollars for yourself. Let me know how it goes. Christopher Hyer 6.14.2011

The Fantasy Dream Of Sarah

The Fantasy Dream Of Sarah
The fantasy dream of Sarah is an article written by Christopher Hyer, which is  myself.  I awoke in on Easter morning, and the story came to my head.  I just started writing and the words started flowing together.  What a wonderful story of heaven and earth.  It’s a short article that I thought it should be shared and enjoyed.  We all have our dreams, and our fantasies.  This dream was in the middle of the night, and when I awoke on Easter morning, I had to write the story.  I hope you enjoy this little story and the meaning of life and death.  It is uplifting and thought provoking so go now and let me know what you think about it.  Christopher Hyer  4.25.2011

The Ongoing Legend Of Phil Collins

The Ongoing Legend Of Phil Collins The man the mythology and of course his music, Phil Collins has produced some of the most mind wrenching,lucrative studio quality recordings of all time. In this article I chronograph his years and he is still kicking . He is one that lives for his music and is devoted to his family. One heck of a musician and just read the article. Very detailed and possibly the best article ona musician you will get from me. I saw him play in 1980 , I beieve and he was as awestruck thenas he is now. He has seni-retired , but I dont see this man as fully retiring form music. Its in his blood and heart. Christopher Hyer 4.24.2011

Hot To Promote Music and Your Selves and Pro Tools 9

Information on Music Promotion I just made a few comments on music promotion on Hub Pages and I thought I should share it here. Music Promotion is not the topic for Pro Tools , yet for some of us to promote and receive accreditation for our work it's fun to put out music out there to see if someone likes it or not. I really do not car, I enjoy my Pro Tools and the Axiom makes my life easier to work on music projects at night when I'm playing. I am a one man band, and there are some examples   in the link above so you can judge me, let me know what you think about the noise. Pro Tools 9 , I have read about it , I just can't afford it at this point, maybe some of you have already received this, I think they should promote an upgrade for M Powered 8 users as myself, yet no word on that yet. I don't much care for the Avid site , it's so darn hard to find what your looking for, that is my complaint on that web site, yet the products rock, and I highly push these to my friends, that want to do what I do and that is having a whole band over at my room and when it's only me, I get some question mark looks and that feels good. The Pro Tools 9 Version is suppose to have more Virtual Instruments and I bet they are fun to use, I am at a 6 month point with  my Pro Tools and I have not even touched some of the sounds in Pro Tools 8 So I am in no hurry, just a word of caution, sometimes M-Audio pushes products out faster than you can configure them , ,their technical department is excellent and they speak English so this should not be too much of a problem.

Building a Home Recording studio Cheap If you click on the link to the left of this you will get some idea as to what type of recording studio equipment I am using . I have to go the cheap route , Yes the less than 2000.00 USD route for my music recording studio and I have not lost any quality at all, I am happy with it for the money, Now would I like a new guitar and some Drums, sound good, of course, as long as their are instruments, Virtual or otherwise I am interested in them, as well as recording gear, yet some of the gear flies way over my head and that is why I chose to stay with M-audio, because of the versatility of the software and the clrity and actully have had no problems with any part of AVID hardware or the M_audio software, just getting it started has been the most difficult part of the setup. If any help is needed please do no hesitate to contact me on this type of set up , because I have screwed it all up and fixed it more than once, and with windows 7 64 bit the control surface or keyboard is the most difficult to setup , Yet once set up what a babe she is to play.Have a great day and I hope this link will open your ears and wpen your minds to the possibility of setting your own stuff up.
