hi ark, russ, pix
i'm in the process of recording a song at the moment a song called "all about you" this is what i've done so far:-
i started off recording directly into my computer program via midi lead from my korg K61P keyboard.
i firstly write a drum beat onto 5 bars, then copy and paste to make sure i have at least 5 minutes recording time. drum beat is; bass drum, snare and high hat, on track 10.
track 1. [all tracks are made with a key board] bass guitar
track 2. electric piano
track 3. rock organ.
i then went back into the drum track to add rolls, spaces symbols etc to suit the song.
once that's done, i went to the mixer section to mix down
then down load to my korg D8 onto track 7/8 through my alesis multimix 8USB mixer, via a yamaha MU50 and MU5.
that's as far as i've got so far, next will be the lead vocal, on track 6, then acoustic guitar, on track 1, i think i'll put a slide with distortion on track 2, then a lead guitar on track 3.
after that it's harmonies/backing voices, mix down then transfer to my tascam MD350 mini disc player, [which i store new songs for transfer to CD] down load to MP3 and finally onto the computer and up-load to myspace. not a bit confusing ... is it?
Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.
