A bit of Crowded House for you today, lest we forget how utterly brilliant they are.
Huge thanks to everyone who joined last night, I know there were a few issues with internet connectivity so thanks for sticking with it. Weirdly there are very few dropouts on the recording, so here it is! I've timestamped it so you can skip to your favourite songs, just check the description on YouTube!
We don't use auto-tune here in the Bran-Cave! Reckon I can hit those high notes on Erasure's pop classic? Click to find out!
I've made a video showing how I make my acoustic cover videos for YouTube. I cover everything from the set up, mic choice, mic placement, video lighting, then into the box to show how I mix, edit and create graphics, using a combination of Ardour, Kdenlive and GIMP
Something a bit different for you this week! During my recent livestream (available to watch here) my partner took a quick behind-the-scenes video while I was playing. This is a continuation of that theme with more detail about where and how I produce music and videos. This is to be the first of a series of videos looking at how to produce music as an enthusiastic amateur on a budget using open-source software. Stay tuned for more!
