This "band" was started about 2 years ago, when I realized that Reason could be useful for more than just Drum-n-Bass and Techno tracks.(check out my other page "Right This Way" if you're into that sort of thing. There's a link to it below)
The first songs (Not Just Another Day, Long Road Alone) were crudley recorded on crappy equipment and un-skillfully mixed, but the idea is there. At the time,I was using Reason 2.0, and the drum sounds were not very life-like. I was running an Ibanez RG270 guitar through the Line 6 software that came with the Toneport (Gearbox),and it wasn't going to cut it. Also, I was just beginning to familiarize myself with Mixcraft, and knew nothing about proper mixing techniques.
After many mistakes and horrible cuts, I gave up on trying to re-mix those songs, realizing that the equiment used to record them was a joke. I decided to get better equipment, and picked up my ESP LTD EC-1000 and a Marshall Microstack. I also found Reason 4 and Nuendo's Wavelab.
Production got better,(Test)but it was still lacking the power I was looking for. I started researching recording and mixing techniques, and after watching many Youtube videos, and a hell of a lot of trial and error, I started getting the sound I was looking for. (Burn It Down)
