Can I have your thoughts on this particular program? It seems to shriek a lot so I'm hoping it's my laptop that has a short, and not the program.

I think it could also work as an equalizer and BG noise reducer for mikes.

Unfortunately I can't test it since I am using Mac OS. Hopefully someone else on the forum can try it out.

Yay! Another recording geek! What kind of microphone are your using? I have Blue Yeti.

 

Not exactly sure what guitarfxbox is for, but if you just want compression and BG noise removal, I'd go with Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) for recording. The beta version is pretty stable and has some nice features. If you're into experiments you can also try out the different 3d party plugins for effects.

Audacity I know. Great program plus it is free and open source. They are smart enough to offer a Mac version as well.

I use audacity since you can even AutoTune on it, but the reason I actually posted the program was that someone with an E-Violin could test it. I use an LG omni vocal mic, and a Shure wireless lapel. LOL we could do a collab with all the forumers for xmas:D

Is this a guitar effects plugin to use with DAWs? Checked the download page but could not find anything what it is or reviews or anything?? If it Shrieks as you say, I would delete it and get it off your computer.

The microphones that you listed are not good for recording string instruments at all. Maybe you are hearing feedback?

Izotope.com has the best guitar effect plugin (called Trash) as far as I think. Believe me, I use them all. If you are looking for open source freeware guitar effects they're out there.

Do you have some suggestions on affordable appropriate mics for strings?

I love the idea of using open source for the apps and plug-ins as often as possible.

For sure I'll share. I just got home from a gig up in Malibu sorta tired but just had to pick up my violin to practice and check this forum out. Still doing Twinkle, Twinkle and practicing scales now. The violin is the same as the bass guitar but backwards so that is really helping me with the music theory stuff.

Anyways, I would recommend using a:

http://www.sennheiserusa.com/c.....%20_504298

It's a Sennheiser MK 4. Works great for home recording on a low budget. It really works well. For string instruments put some foam or even egg cartons about a foot behind this mic. And yep, a lot of the studios I deal with are loving those "Blue" mics.

I would love to hear more about home recording stuff.

WOW, $480, I guess quality is expensive. Thanks for the tip.

No that's retail. I did see though they are going for $300 now. I spent about $200 for mine about six months ago. A great recording mic is the way to go I think. Great free programs out there to record yourself on the computer like Audacity and tons of free programs for effects to use but I would not trust a guitar effects program that nobody knows about on my computers. I've made that mistake too many times on PCs. Mac is the way to go 😉
