I’ve been slowly getting to grips with audacity in the last couple of months and would like to ask advice about the best way to record electric piano with effects.
I run audacity on a Macbook Pro, recording via the Alesis io2 external usb soundcard connected to microphones or sometimes by connecting bass guitar directly into this device. So far I am delighted that I’ve been able to make multi-track recordings of surprisingly good quality at home, even adding basic drum loops using one of the nyquist plugins that I downloaded.
Now I would like to add electric piano tracks to certain recordings, specifically with 60’s rock style organ effect. Think along the lines of this beatles tune http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvDHwVM-PJI
I have a yamaha electric piano with both midi/line-out/mic-out ports. How best to add effects to the output from this instrument for recording while listening to previously laid-down tracks?? I have none of the cables for connecting piano to usb sound card so will need to invest and would like to be sure before wasting my hard-earned cash
Many thanks in advance for your advice!
