Music is a big part of civilization. Centuries had passed but music survived and even grew to greater heights every single decade. As a matter of fact, the demand of music has been rising very steadily in the past 10 years and it will continue that way…
DAWs or Digital Audio Workstation is the musician's best friend, next to his or her MIDI keyboard that is. It's an electronic system that is designed for the purpose of recording, editing and playing back digital audio. DAWs typically consist of a mixing console, control surface, audio converter, and a data storage all in one nifty package.
Many home studios and professional studios are using virtual instruments plug ins to simulate standalone instruments such as pianos, guitars, synthesis and a multitude of sound affects in producing high quality recording. This is possible because of the dramatic increase of the processing speed of the modern computer sound cards and audio and visual capabilities!
Congratulations! Your singing has become amazing, and it's time the world knew. You've also written some songs that are just kick you-know-what. They need to be recorded, MP3ed and put on the net ASAP. But you've got two problems. First, you can't afford a studio, let alone a band for all this stuff. Second, you don't play all, or any, of the instruments. Well, with a modest home recording studio setup, there's good news!
How do you get started as a one man band? Practice, practice, and practice. You need to be a versatile and accomplished musician.
