Welcome To Cimarron Cellar

Cimarron Cellar is my home recording studio. It started in the spare bedroom, but has since transfered into the basement, as I've finished it for that purpose (still a work in progress, but at least its functional now).

I named it Cimarron Cellar for various reasons. The word "cimarron" means wild or untamed. I guess I hope to capture some wild and untamed music in my studio. The studio is in my basement, thus a cellar, pretty much for the alliterative effect. Of course there is the Abbey Road studio where the Beatles recorded, plus other studios such as Caribou Ranch or Muscle Shoals, and I was thinking in terms of such a name.

I do hard disk recording to my WinXP Pro based computer (Athlon XP1800+) with SONAR 3.1 Producer Edition (and a bit of Sound Forge and Cool Edit Pro thrown in), using a Frontier Designs Dakota interface card, with Tango24 audio A/D and D/A converters and a Sierra MIDI interface. I have a modest amount of MIDI equipment (synths, drum machines and such), plus some effects to round things out.

Here is a picture of the "Control Room" (perhaps "out of Control Room" would be a better description)...

What a mess!

This version of the page is just to try things out. Hopefully I can get my wife to design a nicer page (she is a graphics designer and has done some nice web pages - check out the JV80 Resources link [...soon to be active...] on the left). So for now I'm...


Soon I'll make it more interesting.
