Well, it's been a while (and the pangs of a new DAW)

I figured I'd be updating this pretty regularly.  That has proven to be a lie.  

Fans might note that I haven't done much voiceover work this year.  I've been managing a couple careers and it's been tough to fit everything all together(I do carpentry and woodworking in addition to being an audiobook narrator).  Also, a lightning storm in August destroyed my computer.  It wasn't surge protected.  For some idiotic reason, I figured that the electric box would be and it wasn't.  It didn't help that when I got a new computer, I got a new Mac OS as well.  My old version of ProTools wouldn't work with the new OS, for no reason other than they wanted me to buy a new version.  Capitalism can be a drag sometimes.  

I decided to hold a bit of a grudge on ProTools forcing me to buy new software when the old software worked just fine.  So now I've gone the way of Reaper.  It seems comparable, at least interface-wise.  But there are so many options, it's pretty overwhelming.  I'm trying to customize the DAW so that I can bring an even better quality to future audiobooks and voiceover work.  I'm getting myself acclimated to the comfortable spot I came to know with ProTools by this time last year.  I was really getting the hang of it.  Oh well.  C'est la vie.  

My intention is to keep updated more this year, to do much more voice work and to really go above and beyond what is standard in the industry.  I was really impressed with the positive reception of certain things I tried with The Lightning Struck Heart (accents, SFX) and I'd like to do more of that.  I think you'll definitely see that with TJ's sequels in the coming months.  

For now, it's back to an endless slew of Reaper tutorials as I try to figure out how to make this extremely multi-faceted program perfect and just for me. :D
