I just recorded these two songs this month. The first is Satch Boogie by Joe Satriani and was just my lead guitar played over a backing track. I went direct with a Toneworks AX100G into a 2-input micro-mixer. Ghetto, I know, but I'm broke.

I would have used my 57, but I live in a dorm and there were just too many damn annoying noises during my tracking (people knocking on the door, drunk idiots screaming in the background, etc.). Also, I had a deadline so I couldn't waste time trying to get the mic perfect.

The second is Voice of the Soul by Death and is all me. I used an acoustic/electric that was recorded both direct, and mic-ed with an SM57. I had to mix the two signals together on my micro mixer and record to one track cuz my set-up is very limited. The electric guitars are direct, actually the same patch as the first song.

I edited them with Cool Edit Pro on my PC.

So, give me all the constructive criticism you can. This is one of my first full song recording projects, and I want to know how to do it better.

I'd love to but

sez

Angelfire does not allow direct linking
from offsite, non-Angelfire pages,
to files hosted on Angelfire.

This practice of 'remote linking' reduces
our ability to serve out the homepages
of our members quickly and efficiently.


-or am I being dense.

You should be able to use that server, you just need to edit your homepage to include links to the tunes you're sharing.

I think.

I like the layered guitars. Great mood. Sounds like you got something off your chest. I would have enjoyed more separation - it's virtually mono. which, while it contributes to the pleasant layering sounds, felt flat to me, but that's nitpicking. I dug it.
