  1. Hi Folks , i have a problem with recording vocals and guitar seperatly , i know i get a much better vocal track if i dont play the guitar at the same time , but if i do i can never get the guitar right when i play back over my vocal , are there any tips or tricks for this? thanks in advance.

    This may be a silly question but are you using a clic track or drum machine or something to help you stay in time? I always do my instrumentation first before the vocals.

    Simple solution:

    1-use a click track

    2-Do a scratch track with vox and guitar

    3-Use the scratch as a cue to redo your guitar and vox

    4-Practice, practice, practice.

    It might seem too obvious to do, but it will help. Practice until you can play the song in your sleep.
    also, practice playing your guitar and just humming to the song, then practice playing with out humming out loud, but hum in your mind.

    Different things work for different people, but you can never practive too much.

    IMHO, it depends on what you mean by getting a "better" vocal track. If it's because you're singing better, then all of the above apply. If it's because of bleed, experiment with mic techniques to get better isolation. Figure 8 mics can be great tools for this. There are numerous threads about this already.
  7. Thanks for the help folks , much appreciated, i will go and try some of these ideas and see how i get on . Robin. :roll:
