Testing a new guitar recording method.
Playing still shitty, despite my best efforts.

I think your playing is more than fine!
Are you recording direct with a piezo pickup or something similar? It doesn't sound bad, but some of the louder bass notes start to break up a bit.

Thanks. I used the thing on pic + Audacity to record my shitty electroacoustic Cort guitar (looks pretty nice, but didn't sound so good in the end; it was a bargain); then I used CoolEdit and FL Studio for some post-production...

Here is the original recording with only noise removal (I think). Maybe I should leave them like that; I can't level and put effects properly for the life of mine.

This one is old, but also gave it a little push on FL Studio (don't mind my shitty singing; it ends soon)...

I don't know what to do anymore, for acoustic guitar recording.

People generally just use acoustic pickups, piezo or otherwise, for live performance, and even then it sounds pretty crappy in my opinion. The only instance I know of where an acoustic pickup was used in a record was Neutral Milk Hotel's On Avery Island, if that gives you any idea. I don't know how much research you've done on the topic already (as you've been recording and uploading to this thread for some time), but there's really no way around buying an interface and a microphone if you want a decent conventional acoustic sound. There are a million budget interfaces that work well enough, and even something like an sm57 or a cheap condenser will get you better results for pretty cheap. I'm still learning too, though, so I can't say much for sure. I also say all of this after only listening to your music at the low resolution it's uploaded to here, so who knows. For what it's worth, I recorded >1916 through a Focusrite Scarlett with a Rode NTA-1; it's double-tracked (rather loosely!), and there's some reverb, but you get the idea.

>>2274
I really liked this, and I also liked those other tracks with vocals that you uploaded some time ago. Do you have anything uploaded elsewhere on the internet at a higher bitrate?
>> No. 2280 [Edit]
>>2278
Thanks a lot for the advice. I'm penny-less atm, but I guess I really should invest someday in better tools and a better guitar, as I did with the KORG usb piano (though even with that one I have problems when mastering). Truthfully, I'm just an uninformed dumb in production matters, even after 10 years of attempting in music.

>higher bitrate?
Well, I have Soundcloud and Tindeck, but I don't know if there'll be a noticeable difference:

The strings were a pleasant surprise! I think this is one of the better pieces you've uploaded.

>>2280
Again, I'm hardly an authority on this, but your music's arrangements are pretty spare, so I wouldn't expect you to require any esoteric production techniques. Have you experimented with different plug-ins much? There are a lot of neat, high-quality VSTs out there that are completely free, and that's to say nothing of the piracy route.

Thanks again.

>plug-ins... VSTs
As you noted yourself, what I do is very simple, conservative and I try to keep it organic as possible, so I've only looked for what I needed; I build exclusively from what I can actually play myself (somehow), so I have no interest on presets and remixes. For instance, I can use my KORG for the piano (recording small bits each time) and some easy strings sections; but for the guitar parts, I couldn't possibly emulate them on keyboard so what I need is a fair way to record my actual acoustic guitar playing; I do own an electric guitar but, apart from an awful grunge period, I've never had much interest on working with funky sounds and pedals: I just want my sound clean and proper, like a chamber set (same for drums and winds). So what I need, yeah, is a decent recorder.

There's also the equalizing. I like the piano sound of M1 Le but I always feel that it needs a little push (or cut) when listening to it on speakers... and that's when the hell begins.

Here is in fact, yet another try of equalizing a previously uploaded song. I wish all this post-production crap could be done in one click, but even after trying with FL Studio mastering I can't get it right. I guess I should really take more time to research on this; I'm sure I'm doing it the dumb way at some point.

I can't say how relieved I am to finally have found a vocal microphone that I like the sound of, after trying six different ones over the last few years. It's a Heil PR-40, and although I doubt anyone here cares I'd heartily recommend it to any bass/baritone who's recording in an untreated or crappy sounding room. Everyone else seems to love the SM7 for such an application, but I did not!
Anyways, here is me covering Bonnie Prince Billy's "I See A Darkness". I also feel like I'm finally starting to figure out how to use my voice, a lot of which has been downtuning my guitars and forgetting about trying to hit high notes.

>>2294
I can't hear much difference between this and >>2292, but I like 2292 a bit better, it might be a bit more "chimey" sounding that 2294, which sounds like the upper mids have been boosted a bit. And see, tying this into what you said earlier about post-production, I think that when one spends enough time on something it's super easy to get neurotic about little details that no one else even notices. I don't say that as a judgement, of you or I or anyone, just and observation.
Also, about the VSTs, I definitely didn't mean any acoustic guitar emulation, just effects like compression and reverb.

I see. The main difference is that he made an actual melody, whereas I just overlaped 3 frequency randomizers; the execution was limited to manipulate it a bit in real time to build up a faint sense of arc development.

Yeah, but a very rudimentary one, as you can see. The most I ever learned was to do some loops and a mini keyboard, or using GEM to attach hybrid video (file + real time webcam) into some surfaces.

Feel free to post your own things, however. Pd is the shit.

Yeah, music certainly takes a tonnage of trying and failing. It's all worth it when you finally create something you're happy with, though.

I'm uploading it a little after the fact, but here's one I wrote and recorded last week. The title is a bit histrionic, and sounds like it could be the name for a shitty -core band, but there you have it.
