Ok! Time to start with the recording process!
As explained before, I think the best way to do this is having everyone sing all the song as lead vocalist and send the recording, then we will select parts from every singer to make the final version. We will discuss about how to divide parts later.
So it'd be great if you could record your voice singing the complete song and then send the uncompressed file (.wav
) to firstname.lastname@example.org
- or if the file is too large for you to send, you may use an online file sharing service (like http://www.sendspace.com
or similar), upload the file there and then send the link to that e-mail address.
While recording, if there happens to be any part which is difficult to sing for you because of the song key, feel free to let it out.
Use the master track to record your vocal part. You should use a music recording software - like Audacity
(which is free and easy to use: you can get it here http://audacity.sour...ge.net/download
) - adding the master track as the first track in your projct and then recording your lead vocals on a second track.
Please try to use your available recording equipment to get the best possible audio quality
. This is very important...even though we want everyone to participate regardless of the available equipment, of course! so do what you can and we'll find a way to make it sound ok NOTE
: If needed, I can send a master track with lead vocals that you can use as reference to record your part. Feel free to ask. IMPORTANT
: as already mentioned, I need unedited-uncompressed files
to do the mixing. So please make sure you don't save your file in mp3 or any other compressed format and also don't add any effect
- I'll add them later in the mix, no worries
And just to clarify: of course I need to have just your vocal track (not mixed with the master track)
As for a deadline to send your recordings..since it's gonna take some time to discuss about parts and then do the mixing - and it'd be great if the project could be finished by the end of May - it would be great if you could send them by the first week-end of May
Thank you and have fun singing! ;D
