Cinema Society ‘An Introduction’
This was the main interface on this record.
Suprising for cost
In the Christmas of 2009, I decided to try my hand at making more music. I wanted to do something totally different than I had previously. And the idea for my ‘Cinema Society’ records was born.
To record them, I bought this.
It amazed me at how DECENT the sound quality was. Also, it had built in mics, so I could walk around with it, and recording things, like the stomps I did in my grandma’s garage that went on to be the ‘kick drums’ on the song ‘Raggart’.
What really appealed to me was not being tied to a computer, and not having to look at one to make music. I love computers, but it’s easier to listen when one isnt’ in front of you.
I used this for a while, then realized a proper audio interface to the computer may be better, after all. But if this thing had a few different features, I’d probably have stuck with it.
