Media - guitar
I recorded another thing! It's a slower, swing kind of thing, with the guitar just plugged directly into the audio interface rather than going through my full amp+pedal board setup because I couldn't be bothered getting it out. 😛 I'm aware I cocked up in a couple of places, and this is after I rejiggered a couple of parts of the drums because I realised I was starting the fill in the middle of a bar, oops.

Yesss, very excited about this! All the reviews have been glowing and it'll be wonderful to just plug into the guitar, pop headphones on, and not be tethered to one place when I just feel like doing a bit of guitar noodling rather than anything serious that'd warrant the full tube amp setup.

And then of course, I had to spend like two hours playing around in Logic Pro turning this into an electronic song. 😁 I duplicated the guitar track three times and applied different effects to each one, very pleased with the result. The drums were slightly annoying because apparently my Roland drum kit uses different MIDI notes than the defaults than Logic uses for a bunch of the individual pieces. I always end up having to manually edit the drum kit within Logic Pro so a quarter of the notes are even playing anything at all, and then I need to change another quarter of them because things like the toms and crash cymbal have ended up being weird effect sounds instead.

I made another song! This time it was just straight up recording a track on the drums, then playing guitar over it. Definitely doing significantly better in terms of staying in time now. 😛 For the guitar, I used my new Ibanez and switched it to the split between the bridge humbucker and the middle single coil, and it's SUCH a nice sparkly sound! I added some reverb after the fact in Logic Pro as well, since I don't have my reverb pedal yet, and man it's amazing how much of a difference it makes. The whole guitar just sounds more... open, I guess? It's hard to describe but it's quite a noticeable difference.

A friend lent me his "The RAT" distortion pedal since he hasn't been using it. 😁 Very excited to give it a blast tonight.

That was a productive morning, and a good use of spare wall space.

I did a song! The initial track that comes in was just me putting notes manually onto the MIDI view in Logic Pro, but the drums and guitars are both me playing the actual drums and actual guitar. I recorded them as loops and dropped them into Logic's Live Loops view, and then recorded each section as a scene, which is FAR less stressful than trying to play the whole thing in one take. Also, check me out actually playing in time with the drums this time. 😛
