Well today I have started to use Ableton live on my course. It’s quite a challenge as it is considerably different to Reaper which is my prefered choice of DAW. It has some advantages for live work but is geared more towards electronic styles of music.
I have also had a bit of a setback with my own studio as my soundcard has failed, so that needs to be replaced. Been looking at the Focusrite 2i4 as a replacement, but will have to wait until I have the funds to get one. At this point I don’t know when that will be. The life of a student is not an easy one, I even had to get a loan to pay my living expenses while I am studying.

I have decided to start a blog to let you know how things are progessing. I decided last year that it would be necessary to return to education. With that in mind I enrolled on a Sound production course to improve my DAW skills and understanding. This should assist me in advancing the finished quality of my music.
I have had to put a lot of time into this and as such I have less time to write new songs, but I am still working on them, it will just take a little longer than usual.
