I’m having a difficult time adapting to this digital recording system. Tape, for me, was so easy. But not wanting to be the one to be left behind I went out and bought some new equipment.
I now am the proud owner of:
2 each, Rode-NT1a large diaphram phantom power microphones
2 each, Lexicon Omegas, (only one running at a time)
all running into a Dell with very ample (250G) project drive space
So, after tinkering, I can get a voice track recorded… sort of. I still cannot figure how to “punch-in” the track to continue where I left off or give myself a do-over. I cannot figure out how to add other tracks in the same project, like a backing track for music and such – and make it all come out in one project. I’ve just printed off the entirety of the Audacity manual and will be doing some light reading tonight but thought I would frizbee my questions here too.
I am trying to record some spoken word work with background music. Shouldn’t be that tough but it’s kicking my butt right now. Any word of advice and help are thankfully received!
