Audacity rules. Now all I gotta do is get good enough to post here. This year, "I am resolved," lol.

When using the small digital recorders such as the Zoom or Tascam stereo models, too much bass is probably the result of having the recorder too close to the soundhole. Before trying the bass-cut, try moving the recorder so that it points at the 12th-14th fret, this should cut down on bass boom.

Hi guys, I would like to get a decent tool for recording myself, however, my budget is pretty tight - I don't think I can afford a mixer/interface + decent microphone(s) (I was thinking about Behringer C2 originally). Which one of the two would you recommend: zoom H2 or Behringer C1u? Thanks!

Thanks, This is all great information. I'm surprised the thread has died out. I just purchased a Zoom H2n, it came with a program called WaveLab LE7. I am trying to learn how to use it. I also downloaded the suggested program of this thread, Audacity and Lame. I will try using both, I am totally new to recording and do not have a clue on how to use the software. Hopefully the learning curve is not too long. Thanks for any referances to help me along.

Recording can also be used for self evaluation. One is able to objectively analyse the quality of his/her playing.

What i use all the time is a chip olympus stereo dictaphone. it comes in unbelievably handy to quickly record your practice sessions. I have a whole bunch of youtube videos recorded that way.

audacity and garageband are fine for recording guitar. I take my Tascam DR07 to rehearsals, then dump the tracks into Logic for mixing and EQ, and I can get very nice demos that way, even with a 6-piece African band with djembes and djun-djuns.
