Future plans/projects

I have worked with a ton of software as a multimedia specialist for years - tons of promotional artwork flyers, promos, interactive DVDs for music and "horror genre" oriented projects. My preference multi-track DAW preference is REAPER. I've also used Sound Forge for many years. I am currently focusing hard on all aspects of audio engineering in school and in "off-work" time so I can continue to record music for others and test demos for myself that will propel my recording and compositional skills. I aim to complete my own E.P. as a test for achieving tracks with full, thick and pristine, professional caliber quality.
