Gearing 4 a new music life...

Hi!! It has been a long time since I logged in my NG sccount. In these last 2 months I was really busy with my mock GSCEs exams in Malta at my college. Although the "real" exams are in May, I'm still busy with studying and school stuff. But now I have some chance which I can dedicate to music...

Yes...MUSIC!! Although I didn't have chance of composing and producing music throughout this period, I did some major changes to my Home Music Production Studio. These are the changes:

1. I invested some useful money, to upgrade both my studio hardware and software...since no money means no good music... :P
2. I upgraded to CUBASE 6(I will post more info in other posts)...the new release for 2011 from Steinberg. I will use CUBASE 6 in conjunction with the other new DAW which is SONAR X1 Producer.
3. Upgraded my external sound card - M-AUDIO FAST TRACK PRO, with new audio drivers...
4. Started using the stem mixing capabilities of my MIDI Keyboard - M-AUDIO KEYSTATION PRO 88 -- this gives me more control on the final mixing of my tracks...
5. Bought some of the best sample libraries on the market...together with a bunch of new synths. My hard disk now stores over than 1TB of realistic samples!!
7. Bought a 23 '' LG Black LCD monitor...just to use it in conjunction with the other ACER screen. Like professionals do, I can spread the view of my workflow along these 2 screens...

I thinks that's all!! So as you can see it was quite a busy upgrade job, but I'm sure that I will find this useful when producing music during Summer time!!

Feel free to comment...and thanks...
