Recording an Album: #3 – Trial and Error

Posted by Brian on 25th October 2014 in Journal, Recording

Today I took another crack at recording Echoing Wilderness, this time at a faster tempo – though still not near as fast as Gilewitz’s original.

Today’s lesson: Make sure that Audacity is set up to record through the USB microphone. Otherwise, it will be recorded through the laptop’s built in mic and your click track will also show up on the guitar track…

… so the first take (a decent performance) was a write-off.

I did two more takes of the tune, the first one was okay, but the second was riddled with errors. I’ll try again another time…

My "studio".

My “studio”.
