This was intended to be a proof of concept only. After I finished setting up my laptop for recording, I set up the microphone I use on stage, connected it via the MixPre6-II, and recorded my guitar playing the bossa nova pattern you hear on that song. Since I live on a fairly noisy street I figured the noise would be too audible for a real recording. But the microphone did what it does so well on stage… concentrate on the guitar in front of it and reject all other sound. Even when I listen to the guitar without the rain, I don’t hear nose. Then I improvised a melody over the bossa rhythm. The music has a quality I love. It’s a sketch and love sketches. I never make demos, because in my experience the first go at an idea has something special that simply cannot be duplicated when one tries to replace the demo with a better recording.

    yes, – sketch is a good word. More and more – i try not to edit/delete my work.

    and…

    I edited a statement today, forever i have changed it. Made it better ?.. Sure hope so

    ( the original idea/thought will not be lost – imo, …may just be a sweet memory/reminder to self)

    Ottmar – your new portable recording system sounds amazing. What are your preferred headphones for mixing and/or tracking

    Thanks again
