TASCAM help/2 test songs
Hi everyone, its been a while since I've been on and there are few changes it seems and I'm glad to see everything is working well. I recently purchased a TASCAM DP-008EX and have been watching many videos on how to operate the system. I was hoping someone here could give me some pointers to help improve the sound as much as possible (is it worth it to buy a separate mic? If so which one? Any particular device settings prior to recording?) Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Since many members of my family play different instruments we were planning on recording several songs, but I would like to have most of the "kinks" worked out before getting everyone onboard. I put together two songs to be my test subjects (boil'n cabbage and maidens prayer) I overlapped myself playing the fiddle, guitar (pitiful playing...lol), mandolin backup and upright bass. Please give me any recommendations that can help the sound/timing (outside of actually improving my playing... (:
