    I am using a mac laptop with a tascam 122L and cubase 5. I use to have
    a huge system and it was fun to say I had it but this is easier and
    gets my work done.

    Cubase 5 is cool but I don't use 99% of what it has to offer. I'd bet
    most of us don't. I still long for the days of my tape machine. I'd
    like to have it back and then drop stuff onto computer if I need to
    edit something.

    I just got an analog setup working ... got a Fostex M80 8track machine
    and a Tascam M308 mixer on ebay. I do the recording on that equipment
    and mixdown to the computer in order to convert to mp3. It´s fun to
    touch real knobs and faders in stead of using a mouse pointer again!

    These devices that I used to dream of in the seventies go real cheap now
    (not if you want High End equipment of course ... there´s a steep drop
    in quality from my digital setup).

    Your M80 is a late 80's almost 90's recorder. I didn't even bother
    dreaming of the machines they are giving away now. I've thought many
    times that I'd by a studer or mci 24 track but between the tapes and
    maintenance, and the fact that people these days have van gogh's ear
    for music, i just stick with digital.

    I admit I was sitting there listening to my old tunes the other night
    thinking my 8 track from the 80's sounds better then my 24 bit stuff
    today. Its a hard call but then if you want to make a living at music,
    you have to provide what the consumer wants. I'm on that thin line
    where I found another way to make money a few years back so I'm almost
    to the point that I don't give a rats a$$ anymore and I'll get that
    24 track and do it my way.

    Everything I hear is completely autotuned to hell and crunched to the
    point of zero dynamics. I've radio stations tell me my song is to
    quiet and asked if there might be something wrong with the track! (I
    do a trop-rock thing and stations actually come to me- not that there
    is any money in it)

    Maybe it's the kind of music you listen to.

    My music is called Trop Rock. Think along the lines of jimmy buffett
    or islandy james taylor or latin spiced rock. My style of music
    usually has a lot more dynamics then other styles and it is still

    The real problem is that people are use to everything being perfect.
    Country artists are auto tuning the hell out of their voices and
    wondering why people still say hank is the king. People don't get that
    imperfect makes real. You might wow someone with louder or perfect on
    the first go round but if there is no heart in it, everyone will get
    bored with it fast.

    In the old days, songs were meant to last a while but in the 80's the
    trend started changing for a fast hit. Produced didn't expect their
    song to live forever and they didn't care. it was actually good for
    biz to some extent because you had a lot of turn over and live band
    performances sold more merch so it meant more money fast. The result
    is that there are very few great songs anymore. Actually, it isn't
    that the songs suck but rather that the recording fatigue the ear.

    I doubt we will ever have another fleetwood mac album again, ever.

    If that means anything after "Bare Trees", I consider that a good

    Really? bare Trees was a great album but the Feetwood Mac and Rumors
    albums are awesome!
