A Singer/Songwriter from Liverpool. Owns a home studio. One half of The Deltatones, One third of The Skin Imps. Harvey Stroud's Dad.
I record using a Focusrite Saffire PRO 14 firewire interface. This is connected to my PC which runs Cubase 7 64 bit.
All Guitars, Pianos, Basses, Vocals etc are played live.
Drum are programmed using BFD2 samples.
Synths, strings, brass etc are programmed using Cubase's Halion Symphonic.
For Piano sounds I use Steinberg The Grand 3 SE.
Acoustic guitars are played on a Yamaha APX700.
Electric guitars are normally played on my homemade strat with Seymour Duncan 'Everything Axe' pickups.
Bass Guitar is played a stock 5 string Mexican Fender Jazz bass.
For Amps sounds i use VST AMP RACK which comes with Cubase 7.
Vocals are recorded with a Rode NT-1A condenser Microphone.
Keys and Midi parts all are played on my midi keyboard m-audio oxygen 49.
These recent demos for my new solo album are just rough sketches. The finished versions will be edited, polished up, probably with many parts re-recorded and then properly eq'd and mixed.
This project is purely for my own amusement. I have no delusions of grandeur. I do not expect to get signed, famous or sell a single copy.
That said, if you do like what you hear, or even if you don't, please feel free to get in touch.
