probably old hat to some but worth a watch for others.

anyone have suggestions for easy/cheap methods of getting one's cbg into one's macintosh? are the 1/4" to 1/8" converto-cables useful or a waste of $10? also noticed the Behringer Guitar Link UCG102 interface at guit ctr for $39. just want to get some sounds into garageband to start playing with.

My original idea was to share tips on home recording - hardware, software, tips & tricks. And collaborate on recordings.

I'd like to see someone upload a track in an Audacity file or MP3 then someone else can download it, open it in Audacity and add another track, then upload it here. And on and on...

Let's hear what ideas y'all have.

so I bought a "lightsnake" 1/4" to usb cable, and can now record in garageband. anyone know how to export a track so I can upload it to this site?

nevermind, I got it!

SANDDRAGGIN, the link didn't work. It's best to start a new discussion called Bad Moon Rising and then you can upload the file so we can download it.

Hey fellow clubhousers!  Ted asked me to post some tips about how I record.  

I will post different techniques over the next couple of days.

My family lives on  a tight budget, so the techniques I use are great for those trying to get the best bang for your buck.  I will start with most recent and easiest to use purchase, the Tascam DR-07. 

The DR-07 is a hand held digital recorder with built in stereo condensor mics.  It will record in WAV or MP3 format with settings for low quality for maximum space all the way to high cd quality.

I bought it on sale at guitar center for $100 (which is a steal) in order to record audio in conjuction with my little memorex flip camera, so I could have higher quality audio to  mix with the vid.  

Here was the first test recording and mixing with video.  I played this song live through my amp on the cbg and vocals through the PA at low volumes (I have to keep it that way at home to remain friends with the neighbors).  There is no  amplification on the bass drum


I recorded this at 320kbps at 44.1k sample rate mp3.  I then took the audio and mixed it with the vid in Microsoft Movie Maker.
