    From time to time I listen to our own records. I know that a lot of musicians don’t do that, because they just care for their current content. How about you?

    Always, I multitrack with my mates every week and listen back all the time. Iv been doing that for over 15 years. It's fun to go back 1 year then 5 years then 12 years and hear stuff you have forgotten, or the drummer talking shit between tracks is good too ha ha

    Fyi here is my little recording setup. It can record up to 10 tracks at 96khz then mix on play back while having beers. Think portastudio for 2019 ha ha you can also do over dubs and has reverb if you want. I usually just track it then import into home studio. Whole system runs off batteries. I record every time I play.

    Man I listen to my stuff all the time, whether it be my bands or just the stuff I have done by myself. Unfortunately I haven’t created much stuff in th3 last 3 or so years. I am sad that a lot of the stuff I have is such crap quality. Hell, half of it was recorded on a boom box in the corner of the practice room.

    I listen to my own music when it's still new. Once it's been out awhile I tend not to. But then every once in awhile I'll make a playlist of my own stuff from over the years and listen on shuffle for hours.

    I don't think the reason is not caring. YOu listen it a lot in studio, and after release, and after this it is a bit too much usually. And a personal thing, I almost always hate my playing, so I rarely listen to my own stuff.
    But sometimes, especially when driving long distances, I put some old stuff, from bands I am no longer in, and kinda get back in time, it feels good.

    I typically don't sit down and listen to my own stuff, but when preparing for gigs, I make a Spotify (or whatever) playlist, and run through it quite regularly up until the gig, even when I don't play along with my bass, just to get the songs under my skin again.

    Its this model with the musicians plug in which add over dubs and reverb. I use it with a Korg micro studio controller, I monitor levels using small Samsung tablet using their wingman app over Bluetooth.

    Yes, but most of it’s currently in my head- this is not a joke I assure you- because most of it has yet to be recorded.

    This could be a rather tempting trigger for a new thread, regarding not only your own material, but that of various famous folk whose music you have loved or been influenced by over the years- you know, those songs that have stood the test of time since you first heard them in your youth or childhood-

    I do, from time to time. Mostly for fun than anything. To remember some bass lines I record and like.

    So why do you hate your playing? Is it because you don’t feel you are living up to your potential, or something else? There has to be some part that you recorded, that you listen to, and feel proud about. I am pretty critical of myself , but I still hear things I have done, and think “that’s pretty cool”. You may have to listen to it like it isn’t you lol. But it’s hard to be adjective about your own art.

    Sometimes

    One thing I have done since my first recording session is keep a written stave record of my basslines and the horn parts/arrangements. I'm pleased that I was disclipined about doing this.

    I really should of written down what gear as well. But hey
