Things are becoming slightly more ordered and I have started doing some experimental recording. I got the Native Instruments Audio Kontrol 1 interface as it came bundled with Guitar Rig 4 Pro and after some ridiculous fiddling around, everything is downloaded, installed and working. Currently I am monitoring through a NAD 7225PE reciever and a pair of Paradigm Atom loudspeakers – I will probably get some “real” studio monitors and a more “professional” setup going later, but for now this is working just fine. I did not have to buy any of it apart from the AK1, which certainly helped. My number one priority right now is to get an Ivar bookshelf from IKEA and turn my office/studio area into something tolerable.
Be ready for sound files to listen to within the next few months!
