Hello fellow Freesounders, I've uploaded my first Dare (#1 contribution to SoundCloud and I'd like to introduce myself.
My name is Beth. I am 24 years old, and I live in New Jersey (U.S.) I've been writing songs and recording sounds since age 12. Nowadays I do these things mostly as a personal hobby, but I have professional training and experience in these arts and I'd like to try and keep my skills sharp. If anyone wants to hear some things I've done, including my Dare 18, check my SoundCloud:
- Macbook 10.5.8
- Mbox 2 Mini
- Pro Tools 9
- Lots of Plug-ins
- Tascam MK II portable stereo recorder
- Dynamic, condenser, and contact microphones
- 12 channel 4 bus Yamaha mixer
- Mackie monitors
- Fender tube amp
- Crate bass amp
- A whole bunch of instruments (Washburn acoustic guitar, old resonator guitar, Gretsch Jet Jr. bass, cheap old drumset, Korg Microsampler and Monotron, Oscar Schmidt autoharp, Fender mandolin, cheap ukulele, and more)
HEY!! I'll try this on for size to force myself to learn and create. I have a degree in music (brass player, mainly F Horn) and performed with the Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps from 2001 to 2004 on Mellophone. A few years ago I had a major life change and started exploring myself...where my life was going and what I wanted to do, because at that point, I was clueless. Now, I'm turning 30 on March 15th and I think I know a bit more about myself and what I want to do. I've been involved with theatre and am now BACK in school for Audio Engineering. I'm very interested in sound effect design and creating soundscapes (would eventually love to become a sound designer for a software company). But anyway, until I "grow up," I'm still playing and exploring. If you care to know, right now my equipment isn't the best ever...As for recording, I simply use my iPhone or a cheapo desktop microphone. I'll eventually start getting real equipment when I know more about it and am able to form a real opinion about what to use, but until then, this works for me. I have a computer with protools and some other programs on it, but I have not touched it...so for the meantime, I use Magix Music Maker to plug in, mix, and alter sounds that I'm working on. Love listening to everything on this site, you all are a huge inspiration, and I look forward to working on these little dare projects.
Welcome sonidor, zagi2, UbikPhonik and Otterbahn!
Very cool descriptions and very interesting backgrounds.
Looking forward to hearing all your works!
(I also think this "introduction" has been one of the best threads on the dare subforum - thanks for putting it up, AlienXXX)
I think I am also goint to ask people to re-visit their descriptions and update them.
I for one have purchased some gear and software and learned quite a bit since I posted my intro here. - I am sure the same is true for most other Freesounders.
