Write Music On The Computer

As long as music is around and music is good I’m so happy because music is my life. One of the best experienced is having a great time in writing music that I never tried like this before.  Now music lessons can be at home or online where I am currently learning a lot on how to write music on the computer. This is one way of supporting others and giving us the chance to develop and learn fast and simple in the field of writing music.

Fishman Rare Earth pro Rep 102

Finally I made the right decision of paying the good brand which is the fishman rare earth pro rep 102, this is the only one of my musical equipment of good quality that has warmer, naturally full humbucker acoustic tones. Of course a guitarist or any musicians is aiming to have a good device to plug in to any instruments and the fishman rare earth pro rep 102 is the best for my acoustic guitar. I really enjoyed using my guitar now.

Nobody is Perfect

I remember when I had a conversation with my Professor in World Literature actually it’s a discussion for our class. We are discussing about Figure of speech and we are in oxymoron. Oxymoron is about the combination of contradicting terms. And my Professor gave us an example, it is the saying in one of the local movies here in our country. Practice Nobody is Perfect so why Practice?
It’s a little odd that this saying has been revised into this funny new words. My Professor ask us to explain this according to what we understand about it. So I took my chance and take the floor. I started my answer with a very deep breath and so I began. As a student. I see studying as an example of a daily practice. I go to school to practice my own knowledge and skills. But as to say I don’t go to school to be perfect. I go to school because someday I want to be successful. I want to finish my studies in order to help my family. I go to school everyday because it makes me happy. School as a practice is one of my passions in life. I never dream to finish my studies to be perfect for I believe that God is the only person that it perfect. And for me it’s not about being perfect but being who you are and going to that place where you want to be. You don’t have to be perfect to be happy cause I also believe in the saying I heard a long time ago that “Imperfections makes a Person Perfect”.
Nobody is Perfect but we still need to practice to be happy and to reach our dreams . We shouldn’t let that saying affect our own way of living. Live life to the fullest. Live to Live.

Beyerdynamic

One of the accessories that I never missed to use in my daily activities is headphones. I spend a lot of time in listening music while working in front of my laptop, chatting and sometimes recording. I observed that I wasted a lot of money just for this item. So I did some research and look for reviews from customers of various music stores. I tried products from beyerdynamic and I didn’t notice that it’s a year passed already and I’m still using it. Finally I made the right decision of paying the good brand.

Pro Tools 11

It’s a long way more for me to get what I need in home recording, so at this point I’m recording to my friends studio. One of my friends uses pro tools and one with ableton. At first I’d never like pro tools it’s a little bit complicated for me and I most liked the simple function of ableton. But with all the improvements and upgrades that the pro tools have it’s finally set it and going to be great program to use. I enjoyed using it, so cool pro tools 11 that my friends have now, and it’s really an amazing machine for me now.
