Ultra low budget recording

Firstly, apologies if this belongs somewhere else. There's more to this than wanting crit (although I would love some crit), and it didn't really feel like it belonged in original or cover recordings so apologies if it should've been there.

Now onto the thread. Seeing as the majority of people coming here are focusing on low budget recording, I set myself a little challenge. To record and mix a cover, using nothing but free VSTs, REAPER, and my headset (not mixing headphones, just a normal gaming headset). That is, I have tried to do this spending as little money as possible ($0-$60 depending on whether REAPER is actually purchased or the trial. Mine is purchased).

So lets go through how I went about it. Firstly I picked the song - Caraphernelia by Pierce the Veil - because I had wanted to try doing a vocal cover of it with a friend but I wanted an instrumental backing. Then I started work on the guitars.

How I did the guitars


How I did the bass


How I did the 'other' instruments


How I did the drums


what I did to the master


Just goes to show what you can do if you are willing to spend the time, although I'm probably going to listen back to this later and realise how bad it is but hey it was a fun challenge.

I really have to try this sometime. Hydrogen runs on Windows now? The times, they are a-changin'.

It's an alpha version, but it's been alpha for ages and I've only had it crash once in the 2 years I've used it. It actually is quite a fun challenge to do, if I were to do it again I would spend more time on the drums, find some better banks and pick out the best from each but I was low on downloads so I was stuck with the ones I already had. I'd also spend some time humanizing them (something I completely forgot this time).
