Your recordings are why I watch you. You have a fantastic voice.

I'm curious what kind of setup you're using. The quality of your recordings is fantastic and they are well-engineered. I'm thinking "not exactly your typical home-recording-to-the-computer rig" or even "I booked some studio time"  :)

This is such a lovely comment, thank you!

 I don't have anything fancy to record, I have a very basic set up, just a usb condenser mic connecting straight to an easy-to-use recording software that has enough fancy things to make it sound half-way decent. For a while now I've been meaning to upgrade and get an actual recording interface so I can plug in instruments properly and not rely on mic-ing a guitar every time. I use sibelius to create scores and then turn those into midi files :)

If you're producing this kind of quality without it you totally should.

One thought - Do you perform live at all? If you do, you might think about the possibilities of hooking up your live gear to a computer interface. Even an analog cable from main mix to line in on your soundcard if your gear doesn't already have a usb interface

I do perform live occasionally, mostly at furcons, but I don't have any live equipment of my own and I'm normally too nervous to think about recording live haha. One day though maybe, once I've got better hardware. I also want to buy some other instruments too, but it's difficult being a poor student wanting all of these things haha!

I remember what that was like, yeah, all those decades ago.. but to be honest it never changes. There's always "I wish I had that piece of kit". Most of us never make money from music. We put money in and music comes out, not the other way around :) I actually bought my my earliest gear from the proceeds of busking on Manchester streets while I was a student there. - well, some of it. The rest I bought the pieces and the circuit diagrams and got pretty handy with a soldering iron. :)

Haha yep, well luckily the things I want aren't -too- expensive, there's just a lot of it and it all adds up. At the minute the things on my list are: An audio interface, monitoring speakers, a half-way decent condenser mic, a lap steel guitar, an amplifier through which to play the lap steel guitar, and lastly an auto-harmoniser for live performances.

I don't know if they are in your area but if they are.. Music-go-round. Just prowl through the nearest store on a semi-regular basis looking at the used kit. Particularly stuff like mics and stomp-boxes. At what used to be my local one in MN that strategy got me two used-but-pristine SM58's for less than the price of one new and flight cases for almost my entire rig for less than I'd have paid for one large keyboard case brand new. The flight cases "showed a little of their history" on the outside but you really don't want your flight cases to look too new anyway. I've known established pro bands scuff up a new one so they didn't look like noobs :) Powered monitors you want new, but go for slightly larger cones and more powerful drivers than you think you'll need. Because not only do all speakers sound better when they are not run at full power but a couple of decent powered monitors is all the PA you need (and then some - they could still overpower the venue if cranked) for a pub or coffee-shop sized venue. The "live radio theater" company I used to be a member of would scrounge the loan of my monitors all the time.

I too have an autoharmonizer on my wishlist. A lot of the stuff I love to sing in the folk genre, the songs are a dialog - often between a man and a woman. When I used to sing with my ex or when I sing with our daughter, that's no problem but it would be nice to be able to throw a +octave on my voice to avoid having to do the ladies lines in a crusty baritone when solo :)

I really need to find a local equivalent of music-go-round now that I'm back in Scotland....
