Future plans/projects

The band I am a part of, 'Kissing Tree' are in the process of recording their first CD release. Instead of paying someone else big bucks to record us, I got it in my head to buy a VS880 and do it myself. Needless to say it is not as easy as it looks. I have a lot to learn about recording music. My main goal is to record bands that are not fortunate enough to have equipment.


Maton (an australian make) small body accoustic Ibanez Roadstar 2


Brady drum kit Tablas


VS880 on board


SM58's, SM57, AKG 3000, Sure BG 4.1


Yamaha MX12/4

Hard disk recorders



Old shitty amp (my good one blew up) runs a pair of JC-30 Bookshelf monitors that are ok though a little bassy. Sennhieser 475 Headphones.


PC with 8 gig hard drive. Zip Drive. Occasional borrowed HP Cd writer.

Music software

VS copy/transfer (polarsonic shareware)

Additional notes

Anyone with any tips to help a musician overcome his sound engineering disabilities....Help. This is with specific reference to recording accoustic instruments eg Cello, Piano, Classical guitar, Accoustic Guitar and real Drums.
