Hey there everybody! I am new to recording and I was wondering if you guys could help me. I just got into serious recording. Before I would play with it here and there, but now Im trying to get at least one great sounding recording. I had a pretty low budget, but I play guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and sing, and decided to start doing my own thing. So I got all my instruments and such in my room, and set up a DAW. Heres what I bought: Mics: 2 Shure SM57s (of course) CAD GXL2200 CAD GXL1200 Interface: Tascam US-122L running everything thru mixcraft 4 (since I hated cubase) First off, I want to know can I make great quality recordings? Ive been going for days trying to figure out good mic placement, which mics to use and such, and with endless hours of mixing, and still cant get that sound. I feel Im on the verge of making one. Theres just something I can't quite put my finger on... I need any tips I can get! If you guys want me to post recordings, I can do that, maybe you can help me out with what I need. Thanka!
