You Want To Sound Professional, Right?
If you want to sound truly professional, the “headset-microphone-into-your-sound-card” approach probably won’t get you there.
The good news is that it isn’t hard and it isn’t expensive to record great audio!
With the right mic ($75 at Best Buy) & software ($60), you can record pro audio for voice-overs, podcasts, video, & full multi-track music productions.
The Newbies Guide To Audio Awesomeness 2: Pro Recording With Reaper is for audio beginners who want to move quickly into professional music and/or voice-over recording. Super easy and fun video tutorials show you how to start from nothing and create awesome audio productions.
Here are 2 free videos from the new course (uses “Reaper” software)
Lesson 2: Your 1st Recording With the Upgraded Studio: USB Mic and Reaper Software
Lesson 11: Intro to MIDI and Virtual Instruments
From The Newbies Guide To Audio Recording Awesomeness 1: The Basics With Audacity
The videos above are from a sort of “part 2” of our basic tutorial course, and uses Reaper software and goes into more detail on recording techniques – adding MIDI and virtual instruments – using this more professional software. However, if you have a very small budget for gear or just want to start at the very beginning with the absolute basics using free software, then our first course – The Newbies Guide To Audio Recording Awesomeness 1: The Basics With Audacity – may be of more interest to you. Below are a few videos from THAT course.
Basic Editing in Audacity
How To Sing Harmony With Yourself Using Audacity
Loops In Audacity (part 1 of a 2-part lesson)
If you know you want “the full enchilada,” and would like to have the full course (both the Audacity and Reaper Course), you’ll spend MUCH less than if you purchase both courses separately.
