A rude awakening…or…the banshee’s death rattle …W.W.F.
Hi! A couple of weeks back I decided to record myself playing flute. OMG!!
The result was a rude awakening. Saying the playback was like a death rattle would be too kind. I am the World’s Worst Fluter.
Oy vey. Unfortunately for my readers I am also unforgivably stubborn & will not go gently into the night. I want to pick the brains of any willing subjects who wish to tell me how you record yourself.
I am improving. Though 1,000 Xs zero is still zero.
At this point I’m using Audacity on my Asus tablet w/a Sony ECM-MS907 - Stereo Condenser Microphone (from my old mini-disc recorder). At first I did not have Audacity on this tablet. Once I downloaded the software I realise why it is so popular. Now I am looking for a USB adapter for the mic. My tablet only has one 3.5mm jack which makes it difficult (impossible) to monitor myself as I’m recording.
I would appreciate hearing how any of you are set up for recording yourself. I’m hoping to use my tablet now but I also have older recording devices [Roland (Boss) BR-1600, Sony mini-disc recorder & a couple of others] which I will also be using as I get them set up. The good news is I found some old recordings we/I made several years ago (going back to my trip to Willie Week 2002). Made my day.
Cheers in advance,
