Well, I took a stab at these two charts arranged by Johnny. Both were a blast to play! Still have some work to do on Santa Claus is Coming to Town with the higher parts, but with practice, I’ll get it! 🙂 Thanks for the tunes, Johnny!November 17, 2018 at 3:39 am #77596

Thanks a lot for the feedback folks! It is nice to hear it, and will push me to keep working on it!November 18, 2018 at 6:36 am #77663

Great job on these, Louis! Looks like you’ve broken in your new sax!November 18, 2018 at 6:02 pm #77721
Quick question, Louis:
I noticed that you uploaded your songs onto this Forum on Soundcloud… and the sound quality is great! I went to their website and registered, but I can’t figure out how to record my song. I guess with Soundcloud you can upload it once you’ve recorded it, right? Louis, how do you record your sax? Any help (from you or anyone else in this Forum) will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hello Jose Luis!
Thanks for the encouraging words, and compliment. The horn seems to be breaking in wonderfully, and if you get a chance to try one, you outta! 🙂
I do upload previously recorded stuff onto Soundcloud. I know they have some sort of option on the app to record straight to it, but I have never really messed with it.
I personally use a Tascam DP-24 digital recorder with the SD card option. I record and edit everything on the device, and then use an USB cord to the PC, and basically use the recorder as a flash drive in a sense, with all the files being available to be downloaded into the PC or the website. I am sure there are easier ways to do this, but that is how I’ve done it.November 18, 2018 at 7:23 pm #77725
Also, I know some use an interface, a microphone, and then connect it to their PC and use a program such as Garage Band, which I have heard some pretty darn good recordings off of, and then upload the file that way. Another easy down and dirty way to record would be breaking out the phone, and recording either audio or a video of the performance. The phone can work decently if you position the device using some trial and error. Then if it’s a video, simply upload it straight to YouTube and share the link! Just an idea.
Anybody have anything to add or suggestions? I am not too familiar with the interfaces for PCs and computer editing software, so input would be helpful.November 19, 2018 at 6:26 pm #77763
ya Louis I was gonna say something very similar….
on a mac garage band is the obvious one and is very good. I have a little demo of it in the “Recording” section of the Premium Members area.
also, for pc there’s a free one called Audacity which does the same thing but user interface may not be as cool and slick as garage band….
but I believe you can install garage band on a pc.
keep in mind, these are only recording software programs and don’t make your recording sound any better than any other program. Your quality will depend on everything else: mic, interface and whatever else is in between you and your computer…and YOU of course!
whether you set up something like this or simply record into your smart phone or tape recorder I highly recommend everyone record themselves. It’s the best way to keep track of what you’re doing and will help you improve… and for all those that have set up a personal page with me it’s a must!November 27, 2018 at 8:20 am #78106
Thanks for the great advice, Louis and Johnny! Yes, I’d seen the video on Garage Band and Audacity, and I also saw where Johnny mentioned a simple hand-held recording device and even a cellular phone. My next step is to get my hands on one and start recording… and submitting to this platform. Thanks y’all – and Happy Belated Thanksgiving!
