Album behind-the-scenes

Here’s how I recorded the album.

Here’s a list of hardware (that you should think about buying if you’re as cheap as I am…):
Apex 435 mic
Tascam US-1641 interface
M-Audio Prokeys 88 keyboard
M-Audio M-Track Plus (took that over to Dave’s place to record drums for track #2)
Roland HD-1 electronic drum kit

…and the software:
Sonar Platinum (with all its prochannel plugins, and other plugins that came with it)
Izotope Ozone
Izotope Nectar
Guitar Rig (for the guitar effects)
Z3TA+2 was my main synth (comes with Sonar)
