By the time you get up the morning of your first gig you’re likely to be thinking about what to wear, how to set up your sound system and how to create a cohesive soundscape for the day.
And while there are plenty of great tutorials and resources available online, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to all the challenges.
The most common advice I’ve seen is to make sure you have a good microphone and a good mic cable, but I’ve found that the best advice I can give you is to start with a simple project like recording your vocals.
Here’s a quick tip: if you’re not familiar with a microphone, I highly recommend learning the basics before diving in.
I personally prefer to use a cheap, cheap little dongle like the cheap, little microphone and USB to USB adapter from Amazon and the mic cable I used.
That way I can keep my fingers on the buttons without getting too distracted.
The dongles I’ve used are: I’m also going to go out of my way to mention that the audio is a bit muddy in the video above, but it’s still a great way to start.
You can play around with it, tweak the levels, add or remove a couple of channels and you’re all set.
It’s also really handy to record the music yourself if you want to share it later.
Once you’ve got your basic setup set up, I recommend putting it all together.
It’ll take some time to get going but you should be able to get a decent mix out of this.

If all else fails, just start from scratch.
It won’t be that difficult and it will also let you know exactly what you need to start doing, so you don’t need to go back to a bunch of tutorials and learn all of the things that sound experts and musicians are talking about.
The trick is to take everything you learn about the mic, audio and sound system you’re going to use, and add it all up into a single project.
This will allow you to get to grips with all of your equipment and make sure everything’s working properly.
The next step is to record your vocals to record a mix.
You’ll need to record at least one track and then record it again.
This step will allow the audio to be edited and added to the mix as you go.
There are a few things to consider.
How many tracks are you going to record?
The best way to find out is to try to record five or more tracks and see how they sound together.
For example, if you record three tracks, and then mix them to the same quality as a single track, you’ll need three more tracks.
How long do you want your mix to be?
Record as long as you can without getting tired.
Record in the studio with a sound engineer, a mixer, a sampler, a recorder and a turntable.
Record at least half an hour in between each track, and ideally a full day.
If your mix needs to be cut, the only thing you need is a second turntal cartridge.
If the track is a song, it can be recorded with a separate recording session.
How much are you recording?
This is really up to you, but if you’ve done a lot of recording, you might be wondering how much you’re actually recording.
If you’ve recorded for a few months, then you should probably start with around 50 tracks, but this doesn’t mean you can’t do longer.
I’ve heard people get away with 30 tracks, or even as low as 10.
For longer projects, it’s best to start off with around 10 tracks.
Where do you record?
It’s usually best to record in your studio, or in your bedroom, if it’s going to be a small space.
If it’s in a large space, record in a big room, or on a small stage.
You should record with a mix engineer or mixer who can record vocals and bass.
You may also record vocals in your car, but that’s not always practical, so be careful if you do.
If recording in a house or studio, I’ve never found the best way for me to record vocals was to record them over a mix of two or more vocals.
I would record them with the same mix engineer recording two separate tracks.
If I was recording an entire song, I would put the two tracks side by side and then put one on top of the other.
Is it easy to get right?
Recording vocals with a mixer or sampler in a studio isn’t really the easiest thing to get used to.
You have to pay close attention to the steps of the mix, and you need a good mix engineer to make your mixes.
If they’re not up to scratch, you can always record on your own. I
