Take one of the headphones off your ear and leave the other one on.
Or is it that you really want to hear the recorded quality of your tone etc as its being recorded? I imagine that might get a bit confusing hearing the sound direct and through the headphones as well.................
Yes exactly that!.....so I can hear nuances and everything which I can't hear with my headphones on (they are just small sponge covered ones) even with the sound turned down.
I did once do some recording for someone over his backing track and I could hear myself playing aswell as the backing, but he had a fancy piece of expensive kit.....
Thanks I'll try that - so how do you do that? (sorry! lol!)
All this recording is alien to me. Only just started with the improv online course and want to learn the nuts and bolts so I've signed on for another Coursera free course. It appears to deal with this DAW stuff. I don't have details at moment but will share link later if anyone wants it
Even better create your own backing track in BiaB, record audio with the chord chart in front of you on the PC screen..
Well call me a geek, but.......I think I've sussed it!
Open up BIAB, import backing track, hook up Zoom to the Computer, put the headphones into the Zoom, press record Audio in BIAB and playalong. ........seems to work and you can hear yourself and the backing track through the headphones!!
Seems to work with Audacity too. Plug the headphones into the Zoom unit and then in Audacity set both the Input Device and Output device to be the Zoom H2n.
That's great as I have struggled with hearing my sax properly when recording with backing tracks in the past.
Thanks ArtyLady !
I don't really know much about recording so I just plug my little in-ear plugs into the laptop so that I can hear the backing track, but I can still hear the sound of the sax ( not through the ear plug mic, but for real, if that makes sense). I use a zoom mic to record and this way it doesn't pick up the sound of the backing track, just the sound of the sax. I then put both the recording and backing track into audacity. It's simple, but it has to be for me to understand it.
I've just got a copy of biab which includes real band - I don't understand either of them, I open up the software and am overwhelmed by the screen!! :shocked:
