Take One

12:49 pm Audio Recording, Guitar, Performance

Ok – finally got something recorded that I can stand to listen to. This was the best single take of Those Who Wait I could throw down this morning. Not as dynamic as usual, but then I’m playing “sound engineer” while performing, so it may take some time to minimize that distraction. One step at a time…

Those Who Wait (Tommy Emmanuel) – MP3 – 256kBps -10.2MB

Those Who Wait (Tommy Emmanuel) – MP3 – 128kBPs – 5.4MB

Larrivée OM-09E -> Rode NT-1 Condenser Mic -> M-Audio AudioBuddy Preamp -> Tascam 1804 -> SONAR 6

96kHz x 24bit Stereo Track -> Compressor* -> Reverb* -> Eq* -> Export to 44.1kHz x 16bit WAV -> MP3**

Feedback appreciated.

    I like it a lot. Gorgeous piece. Sounds like I’m repeating what this dude said, but I’m not. Definitely will check out this Tommy Emmanuel guy. Makes me want to go back and play Blackbird over and over, since that’s, ya know, one of the five songs I know.
