I think I’ve been playing guitar for almost 22 years now. So I started when I was negative one. Because we’re in hollywood right- I’m 21 (laughs).
My name is Zane Carney, and I was born in New York City and I live in Los Angeles California now. I have a few Apogee products. I have the Apogee MiC. I have the Apogee JAM. On tour I tend to not record too much but obviously its great for that. If you’re on the road-just plug it in. I have the One. I have an Apogee Duet.
Using a product like the Apogee Element takes away a lot of what makes me crazy about engineering. The more knobs and levers, the more nuts I go.
The video you’re seeing of me right now, singing these songs, you’re hearing the work that I”ve tried to put into my craft and it just goes straight into the interface, and then you hear it.
I’d rather have something that someone has taken the care and consideration to make it sound excellent, and they trust me as a musician to communicate thru that instrument.
