Any musicians on here wanna start a band/thing? Don't have to meet in person, we can just choose some songs (or write some), record the parts individually and then send them to each other. Guitarist and singer here, anyone play drums, bass, or keyboards?
I'm a guitarist and (incredibly amateur) singer so I can't really contribute to this thread.
>free bump tho
I'm trying to get in to recording though, and I would love it if there is someone that could give me some tips to help me in the right direction.
1. Find a good DAW. They're all super expensive but that's why we have good ol' piracy to help us out with that. They're all different too, I prefer Ableton because of how easy it is to learn on your own. Other ones that I like are Pro Tools and Logic
2. Get an audio interface. It's a little box with inputs in it to plug microphones and guitars into to record audio. You don't need a super professional one to start, but getting one is essential
3. Microphone for vocals. WAY better than a laptop mic, invest in a decent studio microphone, and DON'T get a USB powered one. If you're gonna get a mic, get a nice one.
I'm a terrible violinist/guitarist! I'd be happy to join the band. What about Julius Seizure for a band name? I've heard Adolf Hipster and the Vinyl Solutions before which I thought was really good. Or what about Everything But Country and Rap? That way every awful dating profile can say they love our shit
Drummer/saxophonist/guitarist/bassist here. Thing is I only own the sax and guitar and I use my cousin's drum kit and bass on the weekends. I can record but it's not pro quality because I'm poor. Skype: eidoloneiroimago
I play guitar (rhythm, generally), bass, and piano. I could also program drum machines and synths if necessary, and I could engineer in a real pinch.
Here's a novel idea: instead of (or in addition to) trying to build a single band by auditioning members, how about posting a link to a rough mix with stems. People could then add or swap in their own self-recorded material and post a link to a rough mix of their contribution (with stems).
