That’s very cool Thane. Your guitar sounds very nice.
Both the sE and the Rode are good microphones. sE was actually here at work last week when they announced that price drop. It really is a personal preference between those two mics. I liked the sE’s more because they sound a little warmer. Rode mics are typically brighter. My room is already…[Read more]
Nice job Eleanor! That sounds like it’s really coming along! Great sound from your guitar too!
I totally know what you mean about the humidity, plus I also sweat a lot when I get nervous. This stuff works great to stop my fingers from sticking to the…[Read more]
Working on the Petzold piece some more and taking Connie’s advice on not swinging my elbow around. There are a couple of missed notes or accidental string hits. It’s really fun to play this piece though.
You definitely aren’t a pain in the neck. This kind of stuff is fun for me.
So, if you are using iMovie, do you see the button by the record button? You should be able to click on that and your input source probably says your Scarlett 2i2 right? You can click on that drop down and it should give you the option of just selecting the Left…[Read more]
The same issue will happen in FiLMic Pro because the 2i2 is a 2 channel (Left and Right) interface. Since you are plugged into one microphone input, it only records sound to that side. If you plugged your microphone into the other input, the sound would come from that side. In iMovie, you should be able to select “mono” audio though instead of…[Read more]
I have been using the Tarrega E minor piece to work on shifts and concentrating on not stressing my left hand too much. I’m taking Niki’s advice more about only applying as much pressure needed, especially with the barre. I’m also working on Dave’s advice about keeping my right wrist more straight so that all of my fingers are hitting the strings…[Read more]
Nice job with the piece and with the sound quality. The NT5 is a very good mic for acoustic instruments! I think you have it placed in a nice spot. The guitar doesn’t sound boomy at all and there is a good separation of the notes. It’s a good sound.
I’m actually using a similar set up now when I want to record quick…[Read more]
Yes you can. This link shows you how to. I don’t use iMovie for that though. I use an app for ipad and iphone called FilmMic Pro because it has more focus and exposure settings than iMovie. I just use iMovie for syncing the audio and trimming the beginning and end of the video.…[Read more]
I record my video on my ipad and my audio on my computer. Very first thing I do after hitting record on both, I clap my hands on camera. This gives me a visual cue and in the DAW I can see a large spike in the signal. After I’m done recording, I import the audio into iMovie on my ipad and line up that clap. In iMovie, you can…[Read more]
So I just finished my first coaching call. Niki was really helpful. I’m really working on releasing tension in the left hand so that my fingers are flying around less. Niki gave the advice to try to play the piece with as much ease as possible and not worry about making it sound as good as possible (just to feel how little pressure is actually…[Read more]
So this morning I’m working on some of the advice Dave gave me in my review on “Snowflight”. I did find that my wrist position for my right hand was too close to the guitar. I could barely get 2 fingers between the top and my wrist. So I’m working on adjusting that. It is taking sometime to get use to it but I notice that naturally my index finger…[Read more]
Thanks everyone! I had a lot of “ah ha” moments during Dave’s critique.
I was using two sE 8 small diaphragm condensers. I had these mics last years and traded them for something else and then went through a few other mics. We trade mics a lot at work. I came back to the sE 8’s because I like how precise they can sound without…[Read more]
