My acoustic mixed with my clarinet. It's rough but it is my first time mixing tracks together. Plus the clarinet was improvised so its not spot on.

Very nice indeed wink.gif It has a wonderfully relaxed folky vibe to it, and its pretty good for a first multitrack recording - told you Reaper rocks smile.gif

One thing you could do to improve it would be to add some reverb - you will need to download a reverb plugin, there are a number of free ones. The idea behind this is that you record all the instruments without any ambience (as you pretty much did) then you add some artificial ambience to make it sound like they are all playing in the same space - it really helps.

Great effort, looking forward to hearing more like that smile.gif

Yeah, I listened to it a few times - it could almost be a quiet bridge passage on a Yes or Jethro Tull album, or something like that.

Another tip - try making more of a stereo field by panning the different tracks left and right to various degrees.

Aerohit: Thanks

Andrew Cockburn: The software's amazing. The plugins are a great idea, I was wondering how to blend things together more smoothly. I swear there seems to me unlimited potential when mixing tracks. Now all I have to do is clean up my playing a bit.

JVM: Thanks, I love mellow. Although me and a couple friends want to start mixing my gypsy folk stuff with there crust. Could be cool.

Wow, now that's a compliment. My dad brought me up to Yes and Ian Anderson is one of my hero's. Thanks again for the tips, I'll use them.

Yes is a great band! I think I need to go listen to siberian khatru now.
