Topic: new member - recording equipment
Hey everyone, I'm new here. I play guitar and sing locally. My equipment is a Fostex MR-8HD Digital Recorder, a Digitech Vocalist Live 4 Harmonizer, a Boss DR5 Rhythm unit, and my sound system is a Fender Passport 250. I have 2 Ibanez Acoustic Guitars.
What I do for performance now is lay a simple rhythm track (percussion instruments like Congas and shaker and stick) just to keep it real simple and then lay a bass track in for the bottom end. I then lay my harmony vocals down on another track, saving it as a song on my Digital recorder. I burn the tracks onto CD after wave file conversion and have my backup. Then I use Movie Maker to show my lyrics verse by verse and chorus written right on the screen putting the video of the lyrics right over that section of music that corresponds. I save the video and audio as a movie file in my Windows Media player Library. This way all I have to do is take my laptop to the gig and set it in front of me.
I'm always interested in what other single guitarist vocalists are doing. Drop a line.
