I've just finished and uploaded the video of the penultimate song and video from my upcoming album. This track has been in the works for the past three to four months. In that time I've survived getting the dreaded C***d amongst other things.
The track is in two parts and I used alternate acoustic guitar tunings as an experiment. My good friend Mark Beling (also a guitarist) caught C***d at the same time as I did and I decided that when we get through the recovery I'd invite him to contribute to the song.
New to the community but already found so much helpful info here, now its time to dive into the details...
I am getting back into home recording. My previous experience with this was a Tascam 424 cassette-based setup. So this digital world is truly amazing to me. I record old school analogue instruments, except a keyboard (but no midi)
Here is the first easy test demo I made:
the room is (4x10) and the piano is a beautiful bluthner 220 cm from 1890.
i was looking for Rode nt1 / Okm II or a Akg P420. unlukily i cant go over 200 $.
i would want to start with only one microhpone for now. any ideas ?
I'm new here and I signed up after thinking deeply about my recent experience while bored in quarantine.
The question I'm posing is pretty huge, so forgive me.
First of all, I'm a total noob when it comes to recording, but last summer for a number of reasons (mostly money related) I decided i would invest what little money I managed to save to get some gear and finally record my first album, with little to no prior experience.
In retrospect it was a bold and kinda stupid decision, but whatever.
Guitar Center has a MXL 990s Patriot Edition for $55 brand new, but someone in the area has a blue spark for that they'd sell me for $75 that is new too.
Market Price on the Spark is $100 more than the MXL, so I'm guessing it's worth the extra 20 to get the Spark?
I've been researching and two mics are my Top 2 choices - MXL v67 and sE X1.
I already own SM57 and have an idea of using both SM57 and that new mic I buy for recording covers.
In that sense, I would buy complementary mic - they say sE X1 is more for rock/metal, higher pitch, screaming and v67 a more warmer mid-section pop player.
