  • Editing guitar notes

    Hi,

    I know Edius is more of a video editor, but I now need to record 7 notes from my guitar (A B C# D E F# and G#) would you recommend I do this via edius or can you recommend some other software?

    Thanks!

    Do you have Audition, Soundforge, or some other audio editing software?
    I would recommend that way first.

      Edius will do them all except "A"
      (kidding)
      You mean an audio-only capture?
      Back in the RexAudio days the answer would be yes...
      Hook up any firewire camera and capture away.

        Ok, tried via Edius (and my computers mic) it's editing without a problem... but only for basic stuff like cutting the beginning/end to where i need it... nothing to make the sound more clear or anything.

        > Do you have Audition, Soundforge, or some other audio editing software?
        nope, but I can download that. Which do you recommend?

          You can do what you need with Audacity.
          For clearer sound, mic closely in a quiet room.
          Do several takes with different recording volumes.
          The cleanest may be the quietest original recording.
          Add volume in Audacity and you're good to go.

              Mic placement is crucial to get a good recording. You want it as close to the sound source (for guitar - it is the sound board), but not so close until the mic picks up the fingers rubbing against the nylon strings. And do the recording in a room as quiet as possible.

                Its for an (undistroted/no effects) electric guitar... so I'm guessing about 10 inches away from the amp? (I cant do it now as its 5 30 am, I'm guessing the neighbors _might_ complain :D

                I need the notes for a Java educational game I am making (so quality is not of the utmost importance) that I hope to get into the Android/iphone marketplace ,eventually.

                  Oh - I thought you are recording a classical guitar. If you are using a electric guitar, why not tap off the electric guitar's own amp in that case?

                    It's a tiny little practice amp, and since I have never recorded to computer before am not really sure how to do it.

                    With sound my only experience is "Sound Recorder" which comes with windows 7.

                        If you intend on doing this in the future it might be worth your while to invest in an interface. A 2 channel mixer through either a firewire or USB interface will do the job. I have an old Mackie XD-2. I run a Mackie mixer into it and use Audtition 3 to capture and process.
                        Now, you can buy mixers with the interface built into them. This is an easier hookup.
                        M-Audio, Presonus, Mackie and others all will do what you want. It depends on the software you want to use and the number of inputs you require.

                          I'm really a bedroom player so and not really into Audio so my "equipment" would be:
                          Guitar,
                          Amp
                          Computer
                          (New) Line 6 FPP
                          :D

                          Gah! Those mixers look pretty damn complicated with so many knobs.

                          I also got a new Line 6 Floor pod plus, I wonder how far I can use that:

                            Do you have a proper mic? Knowing what you have right now - will make it easier to advise you how you want to do this project. I am not familiar with this Floorpod - but, I don't think it has an audio interface to allow you to record to your computer. I might be wrong.

                              I understand, no worries.

                              Nope, no proper Mic (never needed one as I have a voice that can curdle milk ;P ) .

                              This project is pretty much done, but for the next one am gonna need better sound - so this stuff is good to know for me.
