My name is Wayne, 47 year old self taught musician from Worcester, Massachusetts, USA.
Sang in chorus and took keyboard lessons as a child growing up. Been singing and playing acoustic guitar and bass since the early '80's. I've played in variations of the same GB band for about 18 years until recently when I started home recording. Been recording for about 4 years. Started playing electric guitar and mandolin when I started recording and has been a fun challenge.
Everything is recorded on my Dell Studio 17" laptop with 4 gig ram. I use Adobe Audition 3, Ableton Live 8, and Cool Edit Pro 2 for my daws. I just got Reason 4 and started to incorporate that too. I use each equally to produce my songs and rewire to one another for some editing purposes.
For mics I use AKG Perception 200 condenser mic for vocals, acoustic instruments and percussion instruments. I use the AKG D40 dynamic mic for amps. I have a Lambda Lexicon 32 bit digital interface. I also have a M Audio Axiom 25 midi keyboard/controller. I also use the Boss DR3 Dr. Rhythm drum machine. I use a Yamaha SPX50D effects rack from time to time for effects.
For a guitar amp I have a 2x12" Fender Deville guitar amp with happy little groove tubes. For bass I use a Fender BXR 200. Also have a 15w Tweed Fender Bronco practice amp.
I play the electric guitar, an Epiphone Riviera P93 semi hollow body, my main bass is a Fender Jaco Pastorius 1962 reissue Jazz bass, backup is an Ovation Celebrity Delux Acoustic bass. I play acoustic and classical guitar and a Johnson mandolin and I like to play my own percussion instruments. I sing but don't fancy mysef at being too good, I have my own style I would say. My music varies from acoustic folk songs, rock, and punk to all midi constructed songs and some are mixed acoustic and midi. Punk, rock and folk are my favorite genres I would say.
I've been working with Shadowdog Productions, my songs are being used in audio plays they produce. Audio plays are 40's and 50's style radio drama's played by actors and are being sold at their website, just google them and check out some of their video samples on youtube on their site. Also starting to supply music to The Last Great Roadtrip, Off Road Adventure video series, we'll see how that goes.
Hope you enjoy my music and thanks for listening!
