A Vacation Project

While home for Christmas I received a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB audio interface. I’ve been looking forward to being able to record, but haven’t had the time to get it all set up and get all the software downloaded. Vacation has been nice and I had a nice block of time to get everything set up. Tonight was a learning process. The Scarlett interface is easy to figure out, but learning a powerful, but sophisticated DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software was a bit of a trick, especially when you want to get music coming out of it. With some patience and time I was able to record a nice version of 10,000 Reasons. I recorded a lead vocal with two background vocals, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, and some electric. A cool benefit of using a DAW is having a click track, so everything lined up nicely. If you want to hear what I did click on the link below:
