We all have our favourite tools or equipment that we use at home or at our work places.
Your favourite pair of scissors, the specific knife you look for to cut and peel, the specific pen you look for at the office.
I also have, what I call my “trusted” equipment.
This is a mini series of articles telling you about my “trusted” equipment.
I hope you will enjoy these little articles and learn from them, especially if you are planning on entering the music arena.
In the first two articles in the series I told you about my
UPS and my backup computer, and how they have stood me in good stead
through the years.
My third piece of trusted equipment is my Roland CD2 recording machine.
It may not look like much, but I have recorded 5 of my 10 albums
with this trusty machine, which has not given any trouble in the 4 years I’ve
I bought this machine in April 2007, but at that time I was
a partner in another recording studio, and
I used all their equipment, so the CD2 was just lying around at home.
Then, without warning, in the last week of July in 2007 our
partnership broke up, leaving me without a recording studio
and an album due for release on the first Sunday in September:
only 5 weeks later!
Suddenly the recording machine, bought and lying dormant at home, became the focus of my life, as it was the only route for me to
record the album, for which I had already committed myself.
Since then I have recorded 4 other full albums on the machine,
as well as many backtracks and recordings for others.
Apart from the machine working flawlessly, it also is the only recording
machine that I can use as a blind person, without any sighted help.
The machine may not look like much, but it has all the
features necessary to record and master a CD, while not
knocking a whole in your budget, and it is very portable and easy to use.
Although originally bought as a backup and a stand-in, it has now
become the heart of my recording work.
