Anyone on site live in Austin TX???
I am a 54 years young, playing semi pro for 40 years, and moving to Austin to go Pro. I have a full blown recording studio which will be setup in my living room. Top of line Roland Vdrums, Moog Sub 37 synth, Dave Smith prophet 6, Native instruments 61 keybaord controller with Komplete Ultimate and too many boutiqe VSTs to list. Fender Jazz, and the coolest piece of gear is of course the headphone amp which allows 6 people to jam with headphones and sound like we are playing Madison Square Garden without neighbors hearing a sound.
My DAW is Ableton and plan on gigging using Ableton as I also play MIDI guitar.
If you are from Austin, are a pro, and want to possibly try to collaborate on some projects, please PM me. I am flying out this Monday to check out the different zip codes and figure out where to live. Of course I am treating myself to a new Harley. For any riders, Harley came out with a new 107 inc CC engine this year.
IN case you are wondering, I did not hit lotto nor am I wealthy. I was in such a horrific accident a few years ago, I broke every bone in my body, was pronounced dead, had brain injury and it took 4 years to recover. I got my settlement check which was not a lot of money because my attorneys sucked ass but I realize how blessed I am to be able to go pro and not worry about paying rent as I am fully disabled.
I am also trying to figure out best zip code to live, where the best open jams are etc.
If you are from Austin, I would love to hear from you and get your advice where you would live. It's crazy because if you are willing to live a few miles outside of city, rents are like $900 for a kickass beautiful modern apt. They have 2 bed 2 bath for $1100. That is $5000 in NYC.
Please PM me or feel free to give me a buzz. 908-267-3788. Yes, I know it's a NJ number, but that's what happens when you have a brain injury.
Rock on my friends.
