  • Fun With Multitracking

    July 5th, 2013
    jeff-band, music
    With a rare day completely free I decided to figure out how to make layered multitrack recordings. I think the right way to do this involves fancy software like Reaper, but I used Audacity because I already knew how to do that. The downside is that I had to manually align tracks and sometimes I didn't get it exactly right. [1] For each song I played a melody on the mandolin (my strongest instrument) then added various other tracks on top.

    I made three songs. In decreasing order of how much I like them and increasing order of time since I finished them:

    My sister listening to these said they sounded extremely Jeffish. Apparently I have various things I do on different instruments and hearing all those things at once was peculiar, at least to her.

    Instruments include mandolin, piano, penny whistle (one of these in A), bass guitar, electric guitar, trumpet, baritone horn, and fiddle.


    [1] All cases of loose timing in the recordings here should be blamed on bad manual alignment and not my musicianship. Right.
