Question: why do you need 7 mics? What are you planning to record?

Absolutely everything I can get my hands on within a mile radius of my house.

Isn't this basically what Trent Reznor does/did? I remember reading somewhere they he sampled everything himself.

I got it and I managed to click through fine. It's a legit Newgrounds issued check.

Great. Got all my new vocal crap set up yesterday and waited all day through a horrible day to use it only to have apathy and an inability to enjoy what I'm doing or let go and sing. Writers block too.

Also didn't have the greatest father's day.

I got it too, which reminded me I made a dedicated gmail account for my NG account some 4 years ago, which I of course haven't signed into in 4 years. Turns out I was invited to help judge musician of the year 2012, which wasn't something that was sent using the NG PM system for some reason.

I've now deleted that gmail account and just started using my main gmail account (which has 2 factor auth anyway) for it.

So... When I scout audio artists I can get removed from the art portal?

Fair enough.

Upgraded and managed to get a swap (+ cost difference) so I handed back in my faulty Saffire Pro 14 and I payed about £160 (on top of the £140 I spent on the saffire) extra and I got myself an Audient iD22.

Mah gawd, it's an awesome interface. It's a definite keeper.

P.S. All of my tracks now sound like shit through this unit and all of your guys stuff sounds like so much better now hahaha. Time to go back to the drawing board and learn how to mix stuff properly with this new interface.

How would you guys feel if this happened to you?

You spend two years playing and writing music with two radical musicians.

Towards the end of that year, one of the musicians gets a paid gig to go on tour with a band that is touring Globally.

Said band is writing really terrible music, but it is a paid gig because the band is famous and has lots of money to steal members who you've formed a bond with, learned to read and improvise off of.

The touring band has designated members already. You are left out in the cold.

Would you feel anxious that this person may end up abandoning you? How would you feel if this situation were to occur to you? I am legitimately curious and would really really appreciate input from the AP at this time.

Thank you in advance, should you reply to this I will be reading each response intently. If you want some more elaboration, I would be happy to do my best to elaborate.

Wow! Impressive.

I haven't met anyone who actually has taken news like that so lightly. It's usually met with a slight undertone of jealousy, feelings of abandonment and a void of wasted time. Speaking honestly of course.

Of course many of us may have gone through feelings like this in our pasts. But as you get more mature, it becomes something that you DECIDE to feel like. So yeah, if something like this happened to me currently, the best thing for me ot do is wish him luck and of course, always leave the door open for them to come back whenever they'd like.

You can decide your own feelings?!

womp womp

Yeah that is indeed the ideal situation. I wonder also, what I would do if this were to happen to me. If I was offered a payed, touring gig, and how my fellow band mates would feel if I basically left them, but it isn't something I've discussed directly yet.

This has been on mind mind since a few local bands have had their members plucked recently for bigger tours. I notice that they do leave their old projects behind. Some are able to find a fill in member while they are away so they can continue to gig and record at home while they are away, but one group has just dissolved, which is upsetting to a degree because the playing likewise has become diluted too (like going from Mozart to playing Old Mac Donald).

Another point to add is the idea of over-saturation of one instrument for a region. For example, everyone plays guitar, or bass (Nationally speaking). Everyone wants to play guitar. But, drummers are in higher demand over-all than guitarists and bassists. Solid keyboard players and horn players would probably rank above guitarists and drummers for being able to jump right into a tour as well.

So, this concept, to an extent has balanced my feelings on the subject. But, likewise I don't think people want to have their hard work go to waste.
