As is so often the case, Windows reset some defaults that I needed to record. I finally tracked it down.
I'm back on the air. Gonna head down to the studio in a bit.
Thank you for the help and support ... I really appreciate it.
addendum I need a Macintosh, I really do
I will have the new song up on my myspace page in a couple of hours. I am going to record the other song for the festival here in just a bit, but it's such a performance piece for such a specific instance that I might not put it up anywhere, not that I don't want anyone to hear it, just that I don't think it will work well as a recording.
I'm still having some problems burning off to the computer, but I think that is fixable. I can only get one channel, not stereo. It's the cord I am using (get a new cord, I'll bring another one in tomorrow), the output of the mixer (mix out of the headphone jack for now, need a new stereo to stereo mini cord) or it's the jack into the computer (pretty sure that it is not, the stuff I did at home this morning came out in stereo)
The hiss seems to be less too ... so things are going better
Recording went very well actually. I'm pleased. I Got Them Old Mahtowa Folks Festival Highway 61 Blues Again Mama is a pretty cool version, so I think I might post it, but I will probably wait till after the festival ...
