Tom Petty Windflowers cover

Post by philipgoetz » Sat Apr 13, 2019 7:38 pm

I played guitar and sang. I recorded to a Zoom H4n using two mics. Vocal was a Shure SM48 the instrument was a Shure PG47. Yes. These are both $40 mics. I set up the Zoom to NOT have 1 and 2 linked so that one was panned right and the other panned left. I put this audio file into an iMac and then connected a keyboard to the Zoom. This connection was 1/4". I played the track I recorded and added some piano chords. I think the keyboard selected on the keyboard was 'honky tonk piano". I went through again and set the keyboard to 'fingered bass" and added single note at a time bass notes. I then had three audio files, one stereo and two mono and I put them into Adobe Audition and lined them up. Audition can be set up in multitrack mode. This is essentially the same way I used to record on a Fostex XR5 four track tape recorder. I am not too good with multitrack recording in Garageband or directly into Adobe Audition yet... so this was my round about way to work. It turned out ok.

It seems to me that taking an afternoon to learn more about Audition and/or Grargeband would really streamline your process.
