It’s one of the mysteries that always fascinates me – how do you record your voice?

As with any sound you can’t see it, so you have to imagine the waves of sound like Disney and Fantasia did all those years ago.

We really are spoiled for choice today as we can record some excellent music using a computer and a simple set up with a USB microphone plugging straight into the computer. Amazing stuff.

Universal Serial Bus

I’m not going to go all geeky on you, but the choice is pretty overwhelming. When you speak with the kind people that are sound / studio engineers you realize that many of them take professional courses lasting years to pick the best mic for the job.

SL300 USB Mic

USB Microphone SL300

As that idea doesn’t suit most people, I looked for a kit that would also hide the sound of that annoying computer fan – which makes you sound like you’re talking underwater!

With users such as the BBC, MTV and Universal studios this basic set up must be doing something right.

The ‘trick’ is to have a vocal booth which screens out the background noise and concentrates the sound into the microphone. Sounds simple, but can be very, very expensive. Luckily the kit I found was only a few hundred to do what I needed and is significantly cheaper than hiring a recording studio every day  🙂

Makes your YouTube videos sound superb too.

So the microphone choice boils down to the SL150, SL 300 or SL600 with the Vocal Booth sound screen. That makes it a personal preference with whatever budget you’re working with.

Happy Recording.

Ok. Is there anything I could possibly hook up to my piano or even a type of microphone or any type of technology out there where I can record my music I play on my piano and then it will convert it to music notes on music sheet paper through my laptop? I know I’ve seen it and movies and probably recording studio where they play the piano and the music notes appear on the computer screen on sheet music.

There are several programs, Sibelius Student Edition,  Sibelius music software at Amazon called cake walk and you have to buy a keyboard, hook it up to your laptop, and when u play, the notes appear on the screen. Also i could reccomend Finale. the downside is that calk walk is about $400.

Kiki Dee is an inspirational performer from the 70’s. This song, if you listen to the lyrics, is actually quite challenging.

It allows women to go out and just enjoy themselves, without needing a reason. After all Girls Just Want to Have Fun!

 

You can see how fashion has changed, but are they coming round full circle?

One of the best things about this video is it is a live performance and it puts the X-factor to shame as the musicians clearly can play their own instruments.

The upbeat nature of this song can lift even the darkest moods. Avoid classifying it as Disco, it is a much better song and performance then what you currently hear in charts worldwiide.
