The Modern Riffer is starting a series on getting great sound in a home studio. Got any tips? Any ideas not work? How did you get your signature sound? Read the first post on getting expensive sounding vocals from a cheap microphone.

Stale Chocolates (The Bittersuite)

I was helping a friend of mine clean out his dorm in preparation for his move back home, and we found a box of chocolates from his ex-girlfriend. He commented that they were extremely stale. Poignant, I thought.

This song was expanded to a suite for the sole purpose of using the "bittersuite" pun. Pretty pathetic. ;)

PS. my mispronunciation of the Shakespearean name "Gloucester" has already been brought to my attention and will be corrected in future recordings.

An instrumental I used for showing off some things. Recorded with Riffworks using free rex drum samples, my bass guitar, my guitar and a Zoom G2.1u for all effects. Tell me what you think!

Piano and vocal, no effects whatsoever. This is just how good my (free software, super low cost equipment) setup sounds now.
