Just when you sit down to record a Riff

Well, if this just don’t beat all. Here I am, totally geared out and ready to lay down some riffs in my newly acquired studio… and it turns out that I have to have a Licensure Key from Steinberg before I can actually open and operated my newly purchases recording software.

How exciting.

And no, this isn’t a screen shot from my computer. It’s an example given by Steinberg. 

So, yeah… if this doesn’t show you how new I am to the home studio world, I don’t know what will. All of my experience in the studio has been as an artist. Not the engineer, producer, or mixing and mastering guru. I have always just been the guy holding the guitar, sitting at the drums, or standing in front of the mic.

With that, in order for me to fix the current error that I am getting I have to get a key from a local music store. After that I should be in business. It was disappointing to be honest. I was ready to goof off with some guitar tones… and a door slammed right in my face. I guess it makes sense though. It keeps people from just using a bit torrent to snag the software and use it for free.
