For Music Composers, Let a Studio Tag Along, it’s Innovation

November 8, 2008 By Sam

I have a confession: I listen to lots of music, not out of enjoyment, but for curiosity. Yet, I know very little about how music is made. My only serious involvement with music was when, years ago, I tried to invoke my artistic self and enrolled in a church singing group, but my vocals – let me say my hoarse throat – failed me, and that was it.

Let’s face it, music is definitely about creativity and innovation. The sounds, the voice arrangements, and all. And I have always wondered how the prodigies and those flashy celebs make their music.

Could this be the perfect clue? A palmtop recording studio that’s just a little bigger than an iPod? The manufacturers of the Micro BR Digital Recorder claim wannabes can now throw away those lousy guitars or gig bags. It is the ultimate – it has an on-board multi-effects mechanism and a dedicated guitar input.

Micro BR Digital Recorder is 136 mm wide and 22 mm in length, with a depth of only 82 mm. Its weight? 0.1 kg (0 lbs. 5 oz.) excluding SD memory card and batteries.

For those who have faced rejection by a recording studio, you can as well create your own music, complete with your own record label!

It's not that difficult. Nowadays with a computer and Internet access, you can be your own one-person band and music distributor (whether you make it big or get radioplay is a different story).

You could try out softwares like GarageBand (if you use a Mac) or Audacity (Open-source s/w for Windows and Macs). And check out sites like (creative commons licensed loops and also where you can feature your music and/ or collaborate with others).
