I second the ZOOM H4n. Audio quality is great, records in stereo, and you can even plug in an external mic via the XLR inputs. Runs on battery power, uses SD cards, connects to computer via USB, and...

Well what do you want to do with the recording? If you want to record semi-professional stuff to release to the public, you're going to need at least a thousand dollars for equipment and software and...

The scream definitely needs a lot of work, but if you can do it loudly, consistently, and without hurting yourself, then you're certainly on to something. You may still need to learn other techniques...

Synthy/Ambient Rock cover of old French song

So my friend showed me this lame old French song called La Vie en Rose. We elected to do a cover of it under the condition that I could turn it into a cool ambient rock sort of song. So...

Song about College homework assignments and committing suicide

Not sure what to call this one. It's another attempt at trying to be more simple and direct in my lyrics. Not sure about the verses, but I like what I came up with for the Chorus and...

Acoustic Recording

I'm getting that 80's New Wave/Dance vibe from "In My Mind". I think you could achieve that feel much better if you brought up the percussion. The snare in particular is pretty buried. If you brought...

Yo,

A few years back I recorded these two acoustic Saosin covers. I'm in the process of remastering a lot of my music, so I thought I'd revisit these covers as well. In addition to remastering them,...

Experimental/Prog Rock recording

Hey UG,

I started working on this song over 2 years ago with my band. The idea was just to make some simple demos, but it ended up getting put on the backburner for a little while. Luckily I've...

Hi UG,

I don't post much on these forums, but when I do, it's usually an entire album or a nicely produced single of some sort. In preparation for my next self-produced EP, I decided to just video...
