ok, this is actually my first time in THIS section of ug:p (for some unknown reason)

i was wondering what you all use for computer recordings.

i use cool edit pro to get the tracks on my comp. then from there i import them into Acid Pro 5.0 (not a bad program, not that great either)

i find that cool edit is great for editing and all that fun stuff (clip reduction = god) haha and Acid is so perfect for laying out everything and mastering.

but thats just what i do, i've never really asked anyone what they do for recording: so here i am

any tips at all?????

and if anyone has any questions about acid or cool edit, i'de be more than happy to try and answer them!
thanks much
eric

haha, thats crazy, those are the same programs I use. Except I have CoolEdit Pro 2.0, and Acid Pro 4.0.. Yeah they work pretty good actually, they do everything I need them to.

I personally use Audacity, it does everything i need for me such as mastering, taking certain noises out from the background and adding its own effects such as reverb etc, overall i think audacity is great for someone who is just starting to record themselves.

audacity you say?

can't you DL that for free???

if you have the linkaroo i think you should post it, just incase someone need it

to olp
haha, cool edit 2.0 also!!! i love it so much.

audacity is much lower quality free software than cool edit, check out beatcraft ive been using that cause my rummer doesnt have decent recording gear and i found i can mix out the whole song perfectly with that

1. Mic my amp (woot)
2. Distortion on my amp (woot)
3. Into... get this... Acid 2.0 (I have 3 somewhere, but being the lazy SOB I am...)
4. Add drums with a drum loop kit for Acid
5. rerecord
6. Export as wav files (each seperate track seperately... damn you acid!)
7. Final mixing in... Sonic Foundry Vegas 7.0 Pro. THIS IS A VIDEO EDITOR.

did you buy it, or is there some kinda trial?

(i d/l my old version. i'm such a terrible person:p)



I bought it. At first I was upset with myself for doing it, but after a month or so of trial and error...that program really makes the money worth it.

I'm using cool edit... and the metronome is bleeding over onto all the tracks. How do I get rid of it?
