"Vacation Drive" by Edmund Brown

The entire drum track was created in FL Studio 7. FL Studio is fairly straightforward and the presets (EQ, comnpression, etc) are awesome.

For this particular song I recorded the entire drum track onto my Tascam 2488 portastudio. The bass and keyboard tracks were recording with samples from a Roland Fantom X and a Yamaha Motif rack played on a M-Audio 66 key controller.

The synth part was played on a Roland MC-808 groovebox. The guitar (1977 Les Paul Custom) was plugged straight into the recorder.

When recording I've learned to keep my volume down (-3 db at least) and in general I control how hard I strike the keys.

I do my mixdown with only a little eq that's available on the system and I take my files to a local studio for mastering.
