First of all

Hi guy's..Thanks for being with us.

Short introduction info about our website "".

So,a few years ago I decided to created this website to share all the knowledge that I 'I've gathered through the years. I always say that I can't learn how to write a hit song, because if there was a recipe for hit songs, every one would writing hit songs, and hit-songs would become normal. Compare it as if everybody would know the winning numbers of the lottery..and hit the jackpot..

What I do is giving advice on how to promote, and record your songs as a professional would do. Also, I try to find resources that accept demo submissions, and that's probably the biggest work, and also very highly targeted by our site's visitors..

Our site "" in numbers.

We receive about 9 to 10,000 visitors monthly.. and about 15,000 returning visitors..

Most of our site visitors, about 65 %, is coming from the United States, 5% from the UK, and the rest from Europe, Australia, Canada China and more than 100 other countries..

Our website has 187 pages online..home page included.

There are also the Back Issues. These are the newsletter in the past published.These stay online on our site.. Every visitor that comes to our site can read them..

4) About the home recording and mys personal choice..

Hi and welcome.. Because of my latest changes in our sites topic on music recording..I thought about my personal choices of home recording gear.. Music recording is an important part of songwriting and to lift your music career to a higher level..

A good recording can take your career as a songwriter serious..Record labels and music publishers often advice songwriters to find a professional music producer to get the best out of their songs..

Well, this would be great, if a music producer was doing a job for free, but in most cases, the a good producer cost money.. A lot of money..

So, what are the alternatives? Doing the production of your songs yourselves..

How can you do this.. There are two options..

There is the songwriting software, and the digital recording studio..

Her I will give you of each of these applications my own choice..

My personal choice the virtual for home recording is the "Steinberg's Cubase VST" composers and songwriters software..This software was the first that I have used for doing my own home recording

What you need is A computer.., but because you are reading this, I suppose that this won't be a problem.. There's a lot of recording software on the market, but Professional recording studios worldwide are using the Cubase software for the biggest music starts on Earth.. Cubase can help you also with every step of the music creation process, from the first idea through the arrangement to the final mix.

Cubase offers various tools to meet your individual needs. It can be used for all music styles and areas of application. Be it a recording engineer, rock guitarist, dance DJ, hip-hop producer, songwriter or film score composer, Cubase users are among the most successful professionals in the world.

An other advantage of this software that it is affordable for almost everyone starting with recording. It's a scratch of the expenses that you would have if you buy all the stuff needed for a pro recording studio.

I have worked with the software myself..that's why it's mys choice of equipment that I could recommend to every beginner songwriter..

Downside of music recording software.. You need a computer, and as always with computers, there is a chance that the PC crashes..

Then you loose all the material that you have recorded. OK, you need to make a regular back-up of your files, but how many times people does forget to make these..That's a nightmare.. So, if you decide to use software for your demo recording, back-up your songs (and make back-ups of your lyrics)

Make a copy of the stuff you need, in case a disaster happen..

An other option for your song production is the Compact digital recording studios.. My personal choice are the BR of Boss..recording equipment.. Roland Boss is a company that provides a whole-range of music equipment.. From recording, and music production , to digital drums, synth , and other musical instruments..

You can pick out four choices of digital recording studios..There's the Micro br-80. It's a compact eight track pocket digital recording studio that you easely can..Quality easy to use recording equipment that you can put in your pocket..

Then there are the BR 800, the BR 1200CD,and the BR 1600CD..

The BR 800 goes with an SD card , while the BR-1200, and the BR-1600 can burn your songs directly to a CD..

With the BR-800 you can also make a copy of your songs on a CD,simply by connecting the device with a computer..

In fact, these are ideal for beginner songwriters who take their first steps in music recording..It's affordable, and the results of your recordings are very high quality..In time you can always move to a more complicated and so more expensive recording device.. Whatever your choice maybe, for sure these recording applications will give you a lot of recording pleasure..

Also, I noticed that more and more beginner songwriters ,young music artists find the way to our site, asking for an advertisement for their music.. Well, that's a good thing. In fact, that's why I'm doing it, and it's the purpose of our website to help songwriters , and music artists in every way..
