John Masarone, Musician - Songwriter - Multi-track MixingI've been writing and recording since Tascam introduced the Portastudio and brought affordable 4-track recording to the home studio.

From 1999 to 2006 I fell out of music except for playing an acoustic guitar once in awhile. Thanks to my brother-in-law, Ron, and his guitar collection, I started to get interested in playing again. In 2008 I returned to gigging. Before long, I discovered the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and my eyes quickly opened to the new possibilities of songwriting. Since I already had an understanding of recording and mixing from the analog days I took to the digital version very quickly.

Having fun! It is quite freeing for me to write and record knowing I can capture an idea for a song exactly as I hear it in my head. Ah, in what an age we live. With this freedom, my songwriting has improved. My mindset is just to let it happen. Whatever comes out, comes out. If maybe one of my songs brings a smile or laugh to someone - that will do it for me. (Don't get me wrong, being paid would be good too!)

Making something out of nothing — love it!
