Microphones and multi-tracking

Week 2

This class was all about how to record using microphones. To record using a professional microphone into a computer, an audio interface is needed. The microphone is connected into the audio interface using an XLR cable and then into the computer from the Audio interface via USB cable. We Used Garageband (Apple) and Mixcraft (Windows) to record audio and create a short song. We played around with EQ and sound settings to minimise background noise and achieve the clearest sound but unfortunately by this point I was already confused enough
