    Great episode, once again, Joe! Where can we hear that old recording you were talking about? Also there’s a free plugin called PhaseBug, with which you can basically turn the phase of a track around in a 360 degrees circle. It comes pretty useful sometimes when two tracks are like 140 degrees out of phase instead of 180.

    • Cool plugin idea. What recording are you asking about?

      • Nick

        Yes, indeed it’s a really cool plugin. I was talking about the song you recorded back in college, where you get a really good guitar sound.

        • AH…gotcha. Yeah I don’t have that recording anymore. It was just scratch tracks for an album project.

    For the person that asked about recording guitar and vocals at the same time: You could also try what Graham did on his Christiams EP. Mic up both the guitar and vocals separately but also plug in the acoustic direct and if you need more separation you bring that track up. Good luck! Try a bunch of stuff and see what works!

    • Great point. I normally hate the sound of a DI signal, but it can be helpful when blended in with the original.

    • Gabe

      I would, but I only have two inputs on my interface.

    Thanks for answering my question! Muy helpful.
