Here for the gear

Thread Starter
New member from Knoxville saying Hi.

Just joined after lurking now and again over the years.

I've been playing guitar for over 30 years now. Spent a lot of time in bands learning how to fix rented equipment. That lead to a job as a sound engineer for a theme park (where I met my wife) doing mixing and system design and installation. Life changes, I haven't played on stage in 12 years, and I realize that I need to make something that will last longer than jamming along with a YouTube vid.

This weekend I sold a spare bass, bought a synth (Roland DS-61) and an interface (Roland Duo Capture EX). At least for now, my DAW will be my iPad's copy of GarageBand, but I do have access to a semi-recent MacBook Pro if that ends up helping.

I can see a slippery slope here, but over the past 30 years I have accumulated a small pile of guitar gear that works for what I do (blues/rock hack with jazz tendencies who alternates worshipping Kid Ramos, SRV, John Scofield, and Kenny Burrell). I realized that recording will probably make me a better player, as the few times I have recorded in the past I had a really bad case of "red light syndrome".

Welcome to Gearslutz
I like your thinking regarding red light fever
Hopefully getting used to the process will make it all the more fun and help you capture better takes the the time comes
