This is a continuation of my old post on Home Recording for newbies. The first part was very well received and a number of my friends asked me to post another short tutorial. I have tried to capture whatever I can into this tutorial. Would be happy to hear your feedback.

  2. That was very helpful, George. Thank you.
    One Q….when a song has a chorus or harmony, is it better to sing in different tracks and mix, or just to apply the inbuilt preset?

  4. Very nice goerge. and educational.like u i have been
    learning for the past year on my own with mixing.
    what i tell people. is , dont b afraid to experiment with
    the soiunds. as one can always undo any mistakes
    and start over. as u well know..i use a lot of the same
    processes that u use on my magix studio and sonyy
    sound forge..sutdio .and agree with u a lot is getting
    the right sound by compression equalizaton filters
    at time s and reverb is defiantely a must. i also agree
    when i did for nithya s french song vocals must b
    equal to the music. now in some cases with rock
    the music is louder to drown the voice out if one is
    not the best of singers..and my elimanator s are
    basically called noise reduction removers and also
    also what i do is at the end is at the end what is
    called a mix down and normalization…………….
    thus converting into mp 3. so again thanks guess im
    doing it right from what i can see here. again thanks
    so much .nice blog..and all is appreciated. ……….
    god bless NEIL…………………………………………………….
