John Wood Help with recording (14) RE: Help with recording 06 Nov 99

I'd agree with McGrath if all you want to do is practice or hear what arangements sound like.
Trouble is you get tape hiss!
That doesn't matter if it's``just for fun´´.
BUT if you want to use the recordings for something a bit more serious at later date,then mini disc is a good media.
Believe me,I learned that from experience,having recorded the first three Irish Music Festivals we had here in Oslo.
I did that onto ordinary tape(very good quality),and regret very much afterwards that I didn't go digital.

Melbert:When I mentioned``doctoring´´,there are several things you can do.
I've got some very good``live´´recordings by plugging a mini disc straight into the mixing desk(I have the advantage of being the sound guy sometimes)and I might add.....with the artist/groups permission.
You can just let the disc run,and chop it up into individual tracks afterwards.
I have a SONY MZ-R30 Portable recorder and use a Sony stereo ECM-MS957 mic.which gives excellent recordings.
The recorder notes the times of recording automatically on the disc,and you can write in song titles.
In adition I have a Yamaha MD4(which is a 4 track digital mixer)and a Yamaha DigitalReverb.
By running the mini disc into the MD4,I can then adjust tones,reverb. ect.

You can of course plug the mini-disc into your sound card and edit there.There are plenty of good programs on the market.

Greetings John
