My name is Ed Byrd and I'm a recording addict. <br /><br />I have been in band since I was 13 years old and got my first Four Track around the same time. I used to waste hours up in my room working on songs and bouncing the tracks around so that I could turn my Four Track into an Eight Track. Whoopee! <br /><br />Since then I have gone through numerous different pieces of recording gear, and have now settled firmly on a Mac Pro running Pro Tools, Reason and Garage Band. <br /><br />I also run a home recording internet site and have written a book on the topic which is available on my site. <br /><br />now music is my job as well as my passion so life is good.
