CMVic - Craig <craig@cmvic.org.au>

I think it’sBruce’s upload speed that is the issue - so I’ll ask him to turn off his camera if he drops out again

thanks that's great!
Cath Pell
01:04:08
If you record in stereo, even with a mono mic, you can later choose to weight different parts more left or right, which makes it easier to hear for different sections.
Julie Bradley
01:04:09
Hello Ollie I missed the first session although I had booked in. Is there access to that too please via a recording?
Lynette Beech
01:04:47
Can you use a MIDI device with Audacity?
Christina Green
01:04:58
I would be grateful for the first session’s notes too please.
Vanessa Craven
01:05:38
Yes pl notes from the 1st session pl somehow I can't access the web version
Louise
01:05:45
gone
Mary-Lynn
01:06:03
bruce you’ve dropped out
Kass Mulvany
01:06:08
Bruce, you've gone!!
Ernie Gruner
01:07:21
we should all go video off if more Bruce dropout, I was told at another session
Frank
01:07:25
From an mp3 file, can you remove a vocal track. I'd like to create some backing tracks.
Lecky Webster
01:08:01
NBN ... National Bloody Niusance
Hans Bruitzman
01:08:30
My mobile hotspot is just as fast
Tony Bannister
01:09:10
Frank, only if you have access to the individual parts in the mp3 file, which I don't think you usually get in a mp3 file.
Lizzy W
01:09:13
question pls :)
Darren
01:09:31
Just had NBN installed today and it is slower than my old cable service
Lizzy W
01:10:06
*I use my earphones but still get a latency effect/feedback. I've been told other apps dont have the same prob is this audacity or am I doing something weird?
Vanessa Craven
01:10:31
On ADSL2 here and it works well - reliable, steady - not super fast but goes..
Chris Ramm
01:11:03
Does anyone know, if you want to play a tune in from a keyboard - would you need to use Midi?
Aryo Hall
01:11:28
Lizzy, there’s some great YouTube vids on how to solve that. Only took me a few minutes
Angie Jones
01:11:35
Wow! 20 tracks!
Chris Ramm
01:11:38
Great thanks
Lizzy W
01:12:12
also, how do I connect an interface to a mixer? is a mixer even needed? (I just want to record a simple voice and guitar)
Lynette Beech
01:12:28
Hi Chris, A MIDI keyboard would be ideal. Otherwise record the keyboard using a microphone. Not as good because of background noise etc. I'm not sure if Audacity supports MIDI keyboards and devices. The commercial ones do.
Chris Ramm
01:13:05
thank you
Suzanne Coburn
01:13:44
Hi Mary-Lynn
Chris Ramm
01:14:08
Lynette - thanks - so would you need a lead to connect a midi keyboard into the computer?
CMVic - Craig <craig@cmvic.org.au>
01:14:29
Lizzy W - just an audio interface with 2 inputs is the best way to do guitar and voice. Less likely to get any electrical noise sneaking in by plugging lots of things into each other.
Lynette Beech
01:15:01
Yes. Probably via an audio interface.
Lizzy W
01:15:27
ohh thanks craig, so no need for a mixer right?
CMVic - Craig <craig@cmvic.org.au>
01:16:18
Lizzy W - I always record just with my audio interface and only use my mixer for live streams (as it can add some reverb for live)
Chris Ramm
01:16:19
What sort of audio interface is good?
Christina Green
01:17:14
I am liking my Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 interface
Lizzy W
01:17:22
ahh cool cool makes sense! thanks very much craig!!
Lynette Beech
01:17:33
I've got a Scarlett 2i 4 by Focusrite, but there are lots of them.
Lizzy W
01:17:42
I've heard so much about focusrite scarlett :D
Christina Green
01:17:46
yes lots
CMVic - Craig <craig@cmvic.org.au>
01:18:18
CMVic’s website has some useful info on hardware https://cmvic.org.au/leading-community-music-online
Gary Richter
01:18:40
Add new/time track
Chris Ramm
01:22:45
Does anyone know if Is it possible to mark the track with barlines instead seconds?
Christina Green
01:23:31
can I ask if anyone knows if the chat can be saved on mobile Zoom as it can on desktop? thanks
Elizabeth Pearson
01:24:36
are you using contol-z for undo?
Angela Casella
01:25:05
beat finder?
Ann M
01:26:30
maybe you could work out the bars if you know what the bpm are? but might need to calculate it
Lecky Webster
01:26:45
Click track - Rhythm track in Generate ?
Jorg Metz
01:27:05
good for breath points
John Tomlin
01:27:13
can you briefly describe use of selection options along the bottom ...
Louise
01:27:19
see audacity forum re vamp plugin for bars
Cath Pell
01:27:33
Yes. or you can add the click track to give you either every beat, or just one beat per bar (by calculating it). They are not numbered though.
Chris Ramm
01:27:56
thanks everyone - some great suggestions to try
Elizabeth Pearson
01:29:45
If someone sings a wrong note can it be adjusted?
Tanya Nolan
01:30:33
yes or cut and replaced which is easier
Louise
01:31:34
doesn't work for bird cheeps
Christina Green
01:31:54
or dog barking
Paul Wadeson
01:32:28
Click track created from Generate/Rythm Track
Suzanne Coburn
01:33:17
adding videos to Audacity?
Vanessa Craven
01:34:20
Does Audacity have percussion on it to add to tracks if reqd?
Cath Pell
01:34:43
yes, it does
Louise
01:34:56
or click solo
Vanessa Craven
01:35:03
ok thanks Cath
Cath Pell
01:35:25
I think percussion is under "generate - rhythm track"
Tony Bannister
01:35:28
Suzanne, Audacity doesn't do videos but you can bring in the sound of the videoaudio.
Suzanne Coburn
01:35:55
thank you
Vanessa Craven
01:35:59
Ok thanks again Cath
Hans Bruitzman
