I don’t use software to record, i’m making the switch someday soon though.  right now i use a hardware recording workstation from the late 90s.  I’m glad you think what I do sounds good I put a lot of effort into the production side.

I only have one microphone it’s a shure sm57. the vaguest but most essential “tip” i can give is to not let what you don’t have limit you.  There are a million ways to get the sounds you want it just takes patience and a little imagination.

When I was like 16 I remember I wanted drums on a track but didn’t have any drums available so I made hi hat sounds by opening and closing scissors near the mic and that was pretty convincing.  I punched an old rug strung up to get a booming kind of bass drum sound that honestly sounded just like the real thing, and for the snare drum I put a bunch of used guitar strings into a small cardboard box and it made a nice punchy snare sound when I hit it.

There are ways to tell the struggle to fuck itself.
