If your a person then this might be for you.
For a long time I have been tapping, humming, and singing (arguable) into my phones voice recording app. I usually do it when I’m driving so i will probably kill myself and others very soon.
It has been great for recording musical riffs and ideas that would otherwise be forgotten, which may be for the best for a big chunk of them, but lately i have been wanting to expand into extra tracks, so i downloaded an app called “multi track song recorder” for iPhone, I’m sure you could find the same thing for android easily.
I had tried it out years ago but then never really used it for some strange reason. Its free and and works great.
You get 4 tracks to play with. So u could beatbox the drums, hum the bass and then sing over the top of it all which would give you a fairly complete reference if you wish to record later with real instruments into your DAW or onto your multitrack tape machine if your kinda awesome. You can also record real instruments into the app as long as you don’t overload your phones mic input by playing too loud.
I found myself doing Do0-wop harmonies which was a bit weird but fun none the less. The only thing to note is that you have to wear headphones if you want to avoid the previous track from being layered (with slight delay/echo) onto the new track, if that makes sense. If it doesn’t make sense then just take my advice and USE HEADPHONES!
This is nothing new, but is definitely a useful and practical way to quickly catch musical ideas when they pop into your head and in my opinion should not be underestimated.
Hope you found this helpful. Seya next time.
