I’ve always been interested in music, and have on and off played guitar, keyboard, and various other instruments over the years – just never particularly well or long enough to release anything. This year, I decided that I would try to actually make some music I would listen to (and hopefully others!), so I picked up a PreSonus StudioOne upgrade to Pro from the “Artist” version that came free with my external sound card (an AudioBox 96).
My first tune, though not great – isn’t too bad:
My second tune is all based on a running joke at work and was a little more upbeat and lo-fi (mostly due to the quality of the vocal samples I used).
So far, I’m having fun making this stuff – even if nobody listens; and it’s quite the stress reliever after a busy day of programming!
