Hi Robert

I suppose you could put the guitars in the 'podded' category. I have an
older Boss GT-5 effects box. The guitar (Charvette (by Charvel)) goes
into that, then into an Echo Audiofire4 firewire box and finally into the
computer. The bass guitar, which I had to borrow just went direct into
the Audiofire4.

As for the drums, they're all manually programed into Hydrogen. Normally
I wouldn't have left the hi-hats (amongst other things) as they were, but
time got away from me. Also for most songs I didn't get a chance to put
any effects on the drums. There's only a handful of quality Hydrogen kits
available, but since you had some doubt that they were programed, they
must get the job done :)

I critique the vocals myself. I was this close to scrapping the whole
thing due to my dissatisfaction with them. All the vocals were tracked on
the 25th of Feb (the last Saturday in the month). With more time there
would have been some re-recording and refinement. I didn't know the words
either, and I know from hearing other singers, the performance is a damn
site better if they don't need to read sing :)

I'm not quite sure that you mean by 'there is too much room in the
recording'. Could you elaborate please? I would suggest the lack of high
frequencies, or just general lack of any other good stuff would be due to
the sub-quality microphone I currently own. That's the next part of my
setup which will get an upgrade. I agree that some more gritting vocals
are called for on some songs too. By and large this is the first proper
vocal recording I've done, so with any luck I'll get able to get somewhere
close to how I want them to be with some more work.

I appreciate you taking the time to listen and comment Robert.
