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.

Waiting (revised)

This is a 2007 revision of the music bed for a song that my former band recorded back in 2001. We never released the original and my cousin and I were considering revamping the tune for re-recording. I did this demo in PTLE using Sampletank for the (albeit simple) drum and bass tracks. The acoustic was mic'd with an sm-57 and I did the guitar tracks with my tele through my Marshall JCM 900 2x12 with minimal effects if I remember correctly. I was trying to keep it pretty simple for the sake of the demo.

This audio is based on the following rifflet(s): 
Drums with feeling

Melodius Act 2 Scene 3, or Act 1 Daydream Scene

This theme could come in for act 1 as a daydream scene, or it could work for Act 2 Scene 3 (the Love scene). I hate slow love scene music, and obviously any metal opera needs something a bit punchier.

My Parent's Basement

This song was written to parody those of us who just don't seem to get the goddam picture. You know who you are - wearing your black t-shirt with the lightning bolts striking the eagle. Yeah you, how's that Bowflex workin' out?
