Music Composers Unite!
I'm making excellent progress with two compositions I'm working on. I'm sort of recording tracks AND composing as I go. I re-did a rhythm guitar part, playing the part twice with two different guitars, to get a nice stereo effect. I recorded my Fender amp with two different mics- each going into a different channel of the Pacifica. I ended up merging the stereo tracks into mono tracks, one performance LEFT and the other panned RIGHT. I've been cutting and pasting, removing the weaker performances and keeping the stronger sections. It requires a lot of time and energy.
Once all the rhythm tracks are in place (guitars and keys) I'll track the elec bass and lead instrument solos. Then I'll go over all of the tracks and adjust compression and then EQ.
Then the fun of mixing begins! ...now back to work.
