A Medley for the Birds

Post by AHornsby » Sun Aug 14, 2016 11:20 pm

I've been wanting to record my guitar since the addition of the new Bridge Doctor and here is the first of many. (You can hear the nice sustain at the very end.)

Allie is on the fiddle I made her as a wedding present.

I used the DR-05 and the recording settings were 44.1/24 bit mono wav.

In MC I used a limiter (-4Db) with a little EQ on the low end and some vocal hall reverb. -h

I was thinking that you got the spelling wrong and it was A Medley For The Byrds :shock:

Nice tune and always nice to hear real acoustic instrument instead of vst:s. I imagine you had a good time recording this! Nice sound from both the acoustic and a real "woody" tone from the fiddle!

Thanks. We have good fun and I'd say this is the purest form of 'humanization' there is. :lol: -h
