Your Song (originally by Elton John, with this version inspired by Ellie Goulding)
Some of you have asked about my process when I record. Here is how I do it.
I keep a running list of possible songs on my iPhone as I listen to the radio, watch, TV, go online, whatever. Most of the time something strikes me and I know I just really want to sing it.
I go to amazon.com to find karaoke mp3s that I can use as my accompaniment. Sometimes I get surprised by how many options I have for the one song I am looking for, and sometimes I am disappointed by how few options I have. There have been many times where I have looked and looked for a track I really want and I just can't find it.
I use Audacity, which is a free sound mixing program, to upload my karaoke track.
After I do that, I sequester myself in the den and use my snowball mic to record a track on top of the music track. When I do this I have to use headphones so that the audio track is not getting recorded twice by coming out through the speakers on the computer and back in again through my mic.
Often I combine a couple of singing tracks. For example, if I like the track I lay down, except I mess up on the last line, I record just that last line until I get it right, and then I cut and splice it in. I would say half of my recordings have a cut and paste somewhere within.
Once the tracks are satisfactory, I mess with fine tuning, using Audacity. I normalize the sound so it is more even, I add in a fade in or fade out, I clean up background noise, etc.
Finally, I save all of my recordings to box.net, which is an online storage facility. I currently have 75 recordings saved. Some I am not ecstatic about, but others turned out pretty good.
At box.net I click on a share option and then I post the link here on my blog, or sometimes on facebook.
