Me thick as a whale omellete, was on private,DERRRRRRRR
davey - sounds amazing! what recording set up / devices do you use for this, assuming you are using a back track for the bass/drums/keys? cheers
Sounds very nice Davey. That was a really good version you just posted. As for Soundcloud, don't think it was your fault. "Private" just means the general public can't find yout tracks.( Both my last two tunes are set to private.) Anyone folllowing a link should be able to..
the new soundcloud doesn't seem to like Internet Explorer 9 - if you've selected the new soundcloud setting, you can go back to the old one by going to http://soundcloud.com/settings/extra and unselecting the 'Enable Next' box on the 'experimental feature' section near the bottom. The HTML5 Audio feature may also cause problems with some browsers.

Sounding good, there Davey.. a lot of echo under that Chelsea Bridge.. idge.. dge.. ge..
Have you tried using the Alesis Multimix with Cubase LE yet? Just curious if you can use it to control the faders in Cubase or whether it's just a mixer with a usb audio interface built in. Nice piece of gear..
Cubase may be more complicated, but the ability to hear (and automate) multiple effects, EQ, Compression etc in the mix before you render the file is a godsend compared to the trial and error, one at a time, approach with Audacity, which was only ever intended as a stereo wav editor and not a multitrack digital audio workstation.
Although at least the new version of Audacity handles vst plugins better, even if you only get a few seconds of preview..
Having said that, you're getting good results here, Davey
Nice bright lively sound with your new axe. Some good ideas in there, but I agree with you it's rough and lacking flow throughout. I like the way you make your flubs sound good though, I can't do that. Beginning very rough but excellent ideas by the end.
Don't bother with the Cubase LE, it's crap. Very un-intuitive with few parameters you can adjust for reverb (mostly presets). The professional version is good, but takes a long time to come to grips with. I think there are much better programmes that are easier to use. If you get good results in Audacity and are not trying to professionally engineer a multi-track recording why bother?
I only mentioned Cubase LE because that's what the Alesis Multimix comes bundled with, if you know of "much better programmes that are easier to use" why not suggest some, instead of being negative. I've not had chance to try stuff like Studio One Free, Mulab, Podium or Reaper..Don't bother with the Cubase LE, it's crap.
