Let's say you play guitar at a band. You (obviously) don't play every single song of the second you want to record. Suppose that you have an intro, then there is a vocal intro (where you don't play) and then the first verse comes etc. How can you follow that if you don't hear it? One way is to count bars. So, you play your intro and then count 57 bars and ...

The simplest way to do a guide track, is simply to record the vocals for a song, along with one accompanying instrument (maybe guitar or piano). These parts don't need to be recorded well enough to be used in the final recording, but they would need to follow the same structure (length of sections and order of sections). These parts can then be recorded ...

It's called pop filter, pop shield, or anti-pop. It protects the microphone from things like fast moving air and saliva. Its main function is to attenuate the aspirated plosives of the singer, which can produce noise and strong ugly transients.

I am using Ableton Live 9 with my electrical guitar (through a sound interface like yours) and I think that is a good setup. In Live I can easily use effects as Looper and map that to some midi-pedal or similar, to get it to act as a real guitar pedal. I'd recommend that!

But the easiest and ultimately most cost-effective route is to purchase one of the least-expensive Apple Macintosh computers, all of which come with Apple's free GarageBand software installed. This will ...

If you are familiar with - a special kind of - programming, you can use something like Pure Data or Max MSP. Pure Data (PD), for example, is an open source, visual programming environment for manipulating streams of data like audio (or video). With PD you are able to build your own individual FX chains or use community contributed patches (In PD speech ...

A number of approaches can be taken to reaching the desired goal, of isolating the audio for individual parts, within multitracked recordings. Different approaches may be appropriate for different styles of music. If an audio recording only has one instrumental/vocal layer, at any particular point (or only one per stereo channel) it is easy to extract the ...

You can compress it, but I don't think you should. If you are still in the mixing phase, you should be able to increase the amplitude of the piano and any other elements that are too low. Make the quieter parts louder by raising their gain in their respective tracks. If you can't do this, if you only have access to the mixdown of the track, then try to go ...
