Sole Brick came about after failed attempts to start a band. So decided to go alone and create own music, playing all the instruments. So I play guitar (acoutic and electric), bass, drums (on computer), keyboards (to some degree) and the vocals. I record all my stuff at home on my laptop using Magix Music Maker/Samplitude.

Here I Am

The lyrics were written by an ex-girlfriend and she wanted some music put to them. So I obliged. It's only guitar and vocals, 2 tracks for each. It's a slow start but it builds.

Battles...a losing one??

May 26th, 2010 + 6:05 PM  ·  SoleBrick

What's happening with the battles of recent? There doesn't seem to be many partakers. And not that many people voting either. Has something changed? Or does a lot of people think it's just a waste of time? 

Little Big Fan

May 10th, 2010 + 5:05 AM  ·  SoleBrick

Well...this is just a bit of fun really.
I wrote for a little girl (5 year old daughter of a friend of mine) who, after hearing some of my songs said that she loves them! So she became a fan - hence the title. I asked her to come up with some lyrics, so she did. And I'm sure you make which are hers and which are mine (I hope). I also got her mother to record her voice, which is what you hear at the beginning.
The production's not great. Again, as with my last effort, all done on acoustic guitar with effects added through Magix Music Maker. I know the drums aren't the best, but I'm no expert on them, yet - still go with the presets at the mo.
Well, hope there's something there to enjoy...and feel free to comment.

Latency and ASIO driver

February 1st, 2010 + 4:02 PM  ·  SoleBrick

Hi, I'm getting latency on my recordings. I use a Samson USB QU1 mic on my Toshiba Satellite A350, with Realtek High Definition Audio driver. I use Magix Music Maker 16. I've got asio4all installed but to be honest, I'm a bit in the dark on how to get it set up to reduce the latency. Can anyone give me any instructions? Lot of the stuff I've read has just used too many technical terms so I got lost straight away. So simple terms would be nice... 

Do I need preamp or audio interface, neither??

January 31st, 2010 + 6:01 PM  ·  SoleBrick

Here's my setup: I have a Toshiba Satellite A350 laptop, 2.2GHz Centrino processor, 4GB RAM. Realtek High Definition Sound.
I use a Samson QU1 USB microphone and Magix Music Maker 16.
Do I need a preamp or audio interface in this setup? I seen a lot of arguments on forums about this and still don't know if I need either or any of these.
I did look at a Behringer Ultragain Mic100 Tube Preamp... is this any good or needed?
