I'm recording a live venue every week using a Fostex LR16 and bring the multitrack files home to mix using Audacity. I know it's a free program, but I'm hesitant to spend money until I get past a certain learning curve. I can get a decent mix, but when I export the mix as an MP3, it sounds funny. Sounds like "waves"... whenever the kick drum hits, it sounds like the volume is going up & down or something. The drums are mic'd with Shure drum mics and an overhead and the choir is mic'd with 2 overhead choir mics. I'm sure this complicates the issue as well. Does anyone know why this is and what I should do to fix it? You'll have to talk to me like I'm 2 because I'm seriously new at this. Thank you! Is there a way to upload the MP3s somewhere so you can see what I'm talking about? p.s. for some reason the forum is turning the word "waves" into a link... it's not intentional so you don't need to click it.
