How to get noticed on YouTube?

YouTube the new frontier. You tube has been up for awhile and a few people have found out how to really get noticed such has the SXEPHIL show , HOTFORWORDS or The WHAT THE BUCK SHOW. The one thing they all do is leave you with a question of the day to generate comments or even better video responses.I have found by leaving video responses you can generate even more traffic to your personal page. You can check out what I have done in the link in the side bar. I recommend to all unsigned artist to get out there find a favorite Youtuber and get filming it really works.

In the Beginnig.......

I have made my first recording on the computer I was building to recored with. It was pretty easy. The set up I have is a Pentimum 3 with a one gig proccessor and 256k of ram. I am useing the built in sound card and using Windows 2000 as a O.S.. The copy of Cubase I have is just about as old as the computer I am using and seems to work well. If you would like to check out the recording go to my Youtube Page.

Cubsae LE

I have been sick for a couple of weeks.Which gave me time to review my getting started Manuel for Cubase. Its over 300 pages of PDF File and is very dry. I learned to use Microsoft Movie Maker in one weekend I believe its going to take a long long long time to get Cubase down. This is just the getting started Manuel the User Manual is over 600 pages.So I will be reading for a while and I am already getting a error message just looking at the tutorial so I hope that's not a sign of things to come. If you are a Cubase pro drop me a line I would love to have a contact to bounce questions off of every once in a while.

Turning A New Leaf.


I have turned a new leaf and decided I would once again try to learn to record on a computer. It all started with a friend from work getting a new computer and gave me his old one.It is a 2000 year model which worked out for me because that's just about as old as all the recording software I have been saving thinking I would give it another try someday.So I dumped everything from the system and did a fresh install of Windows 2000. I removed everything from the computer I did not think I would be using including any web browser stuff and had to pick which software to use. I have copy's of just about every low end software there is for recording on a computer so I asked around and also surfed the web looking for advice and ended uploading the system with Qbase LE. I'm going to give it a try again and I hope this time I develop a little more editing skills and produce cleaner recordings. I will keep you updated on my progress. Wish me luck and if you have any comments please leave them I need all the help I can get.

"More Of The Same"

I recorded my first song with my Art preamp. It did its job and really increased the tone in my recording. The song is called "More Of The Same" It's about having to go though the motions of daily life while dreaming of something more and knowing in your heart that it may not happen but it's OK as long as you continue to try. I personally find alot of peace in just creating my art weather it be writing or recording music or video's. If you would like to hear the song you can go to the link in the side bar to www.DoubleODude.com it's the background music on my Photo page. I hope you like it and come back and leave a comment.
