Xcel to be U
Home recordings/Original songs thread
If any of you have recorded home stuff, post it here!
My band are going to be in the recording process soon, my drummer has got a Boss BR900CD recording unit, which he gave me to learn a few weeks back and I feel I've got the hang of it now. I did a rough recording of a track I made up a few weeks back. The lyrics were made up on the spot so that's why they're repeated. I plugged the guitar into the input and recorded it (and recorded a bass track) and used a Shure SM57 to record my vocals. Layered it all then double tracked it, EQ'd on PC. I've never done all of this before but I think it's come out OK. I know I can't sing, and don't fret I am not the singer of our band, just backing! Just did it for testing purposes really. With the band we will be mic'ing up the amps (didn't do it here as it's too loud at home) and mic'ing up the drums. So any criticism/advice would be appreciated. I feel I put way too much reverb on the solo. Youtube has somewhat compressed the sound, the original is much clearer. Cheers!
...and the battle begun
