Pam and John's "How To Record Yourself" Zoom - Part 1 - Audio is up! Part 2 Video (coming soon)

@PamPurrs and I have recorded Part 1 - Audio, you can find the video here:

MAC USERS - here is a resource @Griff put together for those who are interested in Garageband…

Original Post:
As we sort out a date/time for the Zoom, starting this tread so folks can watch for it and get notified when we set it up. The recording will get posted on YouTube and linked somewhere here for all to reference. @eric.kiser, is there a way to sticky this somewhere if it turns out good (no promises…yet).

This will be broken into two parts.
Part I - Audio Recording
Part II - Video Recording + Audio

Here is our working agenda for Part I:

  1. DAI - what it is and 2 popular examples (Scarlett Focusrite +
  2. DAW - what it is and two examples (Reaper/Abelton), places to go to learn more
  3. How remove bass from a backing track and import to your DAW
  4. How to connect your DAI get your bass in a track via your DAI
  5. Recording (setting levels - basic overview)
  6. Final mixing/listening back
  7. Exporting your finished audio

All experienced recording folks are welcome to come and add value and throw in tips.

The intent though is to not get into the weeds of each topic but go over the basics of going from “How the hell do I do this” to “Hey, I made a recording worthy of sharing with the world”.

As we go we will collect links to all the tools, etc mentioned in the zoom and link them to the video, etc.

Part 2 will follow and discuss combining that audio track with a video track, syncing and exporting for sharing on Vimeo. (COMING SOON)

Here is our working agenda for Part 2:

  1. Taking Video - phones or webcam/gopro
  2. Capturing ‘ambient’ audio (for syncing)
  3. Video editing software options
  4. Bringing your video and audio together in editor
  5. Syncing video and audio (auto-sync and 'by waveform)
  6. Removing the ‘bad’ audio, replacing with ‘good’ audio
  7. Adding simple titles and transitions
  8. Exporting your finished video
  9. Uploading to YouTube / Vimeo

I’m looking forward to it.

Josh can “pin” it so it comes up at the top of the list of unread topics but that only lasts until someone reads it the first time. When it’s ready, just ask him.

For anybody that wants to keep up with a specific topic, the can click on the bell to the right and choose the Watching option. Then they will get notified of every new post. Just like if somebody tags you or posts on a topic you create.

I am ALL SORTS of interested in the final product, but I don’t know anything about it. So any advice I could give would be worthless. :slight_smile:

Yes @JDDaniel I guess @John_E and I should add a disclaimer to this, stating that we’re not responsible for the GAS you might get from participating in this session.

10-4 @PamPurrs

My Sweetwater Sales Engineer has given me a quote and is ready to make a sale I am sure, whenever I am ready to pull the trigger to buy the new gear. I’ve been busy with other stuff the last several weeks (vacation, oldest son’s wedding, etc.), so that part of my GAS itch, hasn’t been scratched - but will be soon. LoL
