The following is the definitive collection of resources for one of my sessions at the New Jersey Music Educators State Conference and the the Technology Institute for Music Educator’s National Conference held in February of 2010. The session was titled: “Great Two-Track Recordings -A Low-Cost, “Cookie-Cutter” Solution Using A Hand-Held Digital Recorder and Audacity”.
This session details the process of mastering directly from a Two-Track recorder and getting great results in a straight-forward way. The basic two requirements to implement this are a high-quality stereo recorder like the Zoom H4n (the article that I referenced in the podcast/session can be found here) and digital editing software like the open-source product Audacity.
