Marilynn Seits - vocal or piano demo recordings

I had a small home studio for several years before building a 48 track full service studio in West Palm Beach in 1995. I sold the studio and moved back to New York City in 2006 and I had a home studio there. Recently I moved the studio equipment and Bosendorfer grand down to Asheville, NC where I now live. The audio & MIDI recording & editing program I use is Pogic Pro on an iMac along with Apogee Ensemble, MOTU MIDI Express interfaces, a Kurtzweil PC88 MX keyboard and Westlake monitors. I have composed and edited music for a dozen CDs using this setup, recorded many demos for clients and done MIDI arranging for clients' original songs. I have also edited and "cut" music from CDs for dressage riders and ice skaters to use in competition. I have a beautiful sounding Bosendorfer 6'6" piano in my living room for recording piano CDs along with a Neuman U67 tube mic and 2 Neuman KM 84's for inside the piano. I can also provide piano accompaniment for vocalists and print out lead sheets in the CORRECT keys for your voice. Visit www.cmrrecords.com for more info on past studio clients.
