Home Recording
#1
Been doing some home recording, hoping to get a decent USB mic soon so I can record direct into the MAC rather than via a separate multi-tracker.
Any way, dont know if anyone else plays but here are my first efforts.

all recorded into a cheap portable multi track recorder, 2 of the 3 songs were just live takes, one was recorded as two tracks then mastered.  Im planning to get a USB mic and record direct into garageband in future as its a bit easier to use and can hold much more music than my rather old multi-tracker which is very limited my its storage card.

kinda suits the song........and hides a multitude of sins!

The guitar is a Gibson Hummingbird, just one of my collection.

There are also some nice mixers with USB capability available for pretty reasonable prices. IMO, an updated multi-track recorder will probably deliver the best results unless you don't care about recording it in one shot, in which case I'd go for a USB mixer such as the Behringer 1204USB

I'm not sure a USB mic is going to offer much. Can you even get professional USB mics? Perhaps an XLR - USB converter unit?

garageband is capable of pretty impressive results in the right hands (although probably not mine!), and I thought MACs were particularly good at media processing. I would only be looking at one or two guitar tracks plus vocals so it should be ok. I have an 8 track digital multitracker, but i find it isnt particularly intuitive.

As for mics im looking to get either a Blue Yeti or an Audio Technica AT2020, leaning towards the yeti at the moment.

Intuitive like how? Surely you're adding effects post recording?
