  1. I have used Audacity to record Cassette tapes from years ago. Most of my recording have gone OK. On a few of the recordings I can see the wave form but when played normal I cannot hear the recording. If I split the stereo tracks and set one to SOLO, I can hear the recording. When BOTH tracks are playing I cannot hear the audio or it is very quiet. I have a feeling that I somehow set the tracks out of phase and the the tracks are cancelling each other out. Any Ideas on how to get the stereo playback working again?
  2. Hello all, I used to use a crappy USB Art M-one condenser mic but after doing much research have upgraded to a Scarlett 2i2 combined with an MXL V67G. Problem I recorded myself and to be honest, while the recording is clean and clear (at least compared to my crappy USB condenser mic), it sounds so different from when I sing in person. This recording lacks power, and it just has this really dampened feeling, and sounds so boring compared to myself singing in person (friends who I show this to agree also). I'm wondering if this can be fixed just through software like EQ-ing and compressing, reverb etc, or do I need a better mic? If I do, I would preferably like to spend below $100. Recording Info The recording I have below is just noise reduction and normalize, no compression, reverb, equalizer nothing. I have tried some basic compression & reverb on another recording and while it improves the output (have not uploaded this MP3 yet), still doesn't sound the same as in person. Am I just a newb at EQ-ing? Or is this a microphone limitation? Recording below EDIT: If this is the wrong forum, mods please move to correct one
  3. Hello everyone, recently wrote some songs at home and recorded them. Would be a pleasure to get a litte review, tipps and advice from you! Hope you like it! A link to my page: https://www.facebook.com/simon.meyers.18 Thank you very much! Kind regards Simon Meyers
  4. I thought I would do something special for Valentine's Day. Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I have sang this style in years, so doing it in one take was definitely a challenge. I had fun going back to my Gospel roots, especially playing with sob vocal mode and distortion in that Gospel placement.
  5. Looking to get some equipment to record my voice with. Any good recommendations as far as a USB mic goes? I'm looking to see if I can get a decent one for under $200. What else would be good to have equipment-wise or software-wise? I have an MIDI keyboard that I can play fairly well, and a couple guitars as well, so I may play some stuff that I would want to transfer to the computer. And as far as software goes, I can also use software that works on Windows (7 or 8) or Mac (Mavericks).

Its military grade carbon granule element captures sound and creates a "lofi" sound that is naturally distorted.

Each selection on the control knob offers a different frequency response, allowing the Carbonphone to be used on a broad range instruments and for various applications. Because the sound of Carbonphone has a character unlike many other traditional mics, it makes a great addition to any recording enthusiast’s arsenal of microphones. It can be used as an all out obvious ‘effect’ on it’s own or it can be paired with other traditional microphones for infinite blending possibilities. The Carbonphone is a perfect microphone for any person looking to update their studio with new sounds but it is also usable for live performances and with its high durability and great resistance to high pressure sound levels.

    New Cover

    I was chosing another song to work on and I stumbled upon this one. It has "high" notes (for my standard) and low notes. Definitely difficult for me. Insights appreciated. Cheers!

    Phoenix Ren - Begin By Letting Go

    Hi all Not been on here for a good couple of years but decided to bite the bullet again with singing and learning how to home record using Logic Pro X following training for several months and finding my own voice and not trying to copy others. My artist name is Phoenix Ren and she's only just come out to play this last summer! I'm pleased so far and know I have to more to give in terms of the voice. I also need some lessons to learn with editing the vocal to avoid 'essing' and 'popping' still being too close to the mic, but I'm keen for feedback on the overall track, balancing etc. I used 2 mixes together for the vocal - one wet with some reverb, and one dry with only compression. I use an SE220a mic and Focusrite Solo preamp/interface...and a load of mattresses!

    Youtube Copyright... fair use

    Anyone knowledgeable on uploading videos with audio from an artists song? Like legal stuff and the route of dealing with youtube? My John Legend video just had a copyright claim on it by Som Livre, Varios...I think it's some company in Brazil. I don't even think they are tied to John Legend. It said I could post it but not make money off of it. I'm not trying to. But, I figured I would "dispute" it for two reasons. One, fair use laws in Canada are pretty good, from what I know of. And two, I don't think they even own the copyright.
  19. I have been learning to sing for two weeks so far. I need a little help figuring out how to make my voice sound better. The song I am singing is panic at the disco Time to Dance.
  20. Hi everyone! I recently just got diagnosed with Vocal Chord Edema, I've had alot of trouble hitting C4 and above in chest/mixed voice and had lost my head voice and falsetto for a solid 5 months after a cold. After being on medication for a while i've been able to explore the 4th octave more regularly with ease and wasn't sure if I am using healthy technique or placing my voice correctly. I am being assessed on this song in 3 weeks and I'm hoping to move my last assessment grade from a B+ to an A! I've only been learning this song for 3 days so some parts are not correct but I am doing my best as my throat gets swollen easily from the edema so I try to practice as much as possible without abusing my voice <3 https://vocaroo.com/i/s0r7K7hrWgxF (Love You I Do - Jennifer Hudson)

  22. Hello guys, I am new to this industry with zero experience. Long story short, I would like to record a radio quality song. Unfortunately where I live there aren't any vocal studios, Therefore, I have to create my own at home. I did some research, However, I have got four main questions, please give me your advice from your experience guys! First Question: I am going to buy mic NT1A, Focusrite scarllet solo audio interface with pro tools, mic stand, low Z xlr microphone cable. Now, are these products good as a beginner? I will not be recording any instruments. I will hire a producer online to do everything. I just need a clean recording. Question is, do I need any extra items? Second Question: I read so many times that background noise is a major issue etc... What can I do in order to avoid that? Keep in mind that i am "creating" my own home studio. Third Question: What is the order usually in chronological order -> recording, mixing, remixing, producing, mastering? How does it work. If I hire a producer is he or she supposed to do everything? and all I have to do is record? Or is a producer's job different than mixing, mastering etc.. Fourth Question: I wrote my lyrics and its all good. However, usually how do artists come up with "how to sing the song" like, do producers usually demo the song? Since I am relaying on the producer to do the beat, so is the producer also responsible for "demoing" it? Thank you so much guys, If anyone has an idea I would highly appreciate it! Have a good one!
