hmm, i'm lucky then. I steered clear of computer music. totally out of that
loop. I record live through (sometimes) a mixer onto MasterLink, FD8, dat,
new dvmedia. I never got what running through mazes on a screen did for
anyone. I love tweaking things while I play and getting rid of a creak or
footstep just isn't worth the loss of communication for me. But
studio-personification is something that is a character in the music for me
lately, and I like to mic, yes I do. So this works fine for me but to each
his reach.
or failing that idea: just play for yourself and don't record it until you
hear yourself playing your instrument (whatever tool that may be).
