So as the title said, I'm with a band that has no idea to record [or they probably do, but lack the essentials to actually record something haha...]
So this is how our "studio" room is set up. It's a carpet floor with a few cloth hangings on the wall and foam on the door [so we don't disturb the rest of the house]. The two half stacks are set next to each other, both pointing inwards like so:
The bassist has his own little corner for his amp. The drums are faced in the remaining corner of the room. So each musician has his own little corner, except for the guitarist who share a corner.
It's a perfect cubed room... 10x10x10 feet.
There is no computer in this room. This is simply where all the instruments are.
So my question is what will we need to record? Obviously a condenser microphone, but what else so that we can record in that room and the put it on the computer? Do we record our instruments individually via a mic? together? Do we link our amps to a recorder?
I'm so lost... hah
For the time being, since recording gear is so expensive, we'll just focus on recording the guitar [no drums or bass or vocals] so just listing the gear needed to record two half stacks would be helpful. Do we want to let the mic hang from the ceiling or put the mic in front of each speaker? I'll be sure to update this as more questions arise. Thanks!
