I have to preface, that I am new to Cakewalk and trying to figure out the best way to record acoustic Guitar.
Here is as far as I got:
I have two condenser mikes and record in Stereo to two tracks
I create a bus for L and R and pan one track to the left and the other to the right which gives me two independent buses for each channel
The two buses have sends to a reverb and wider bus which are blended together to a master bus for final processing.
This setup works well and gives me lots of control. However, if I record something complex I will have to inevitable re-record or correct certain sections.
I am somewhat familiar with comping but that does not allow me to just fix a section easily because it will never be in the correct spot.
Moving and trimming a fix on 2 channels at the same time appears to be VERY difficult.
So here is my question how would you go about fixing/re-recording a small section of a song and then placing it into the same spot on multiple tracks?
Is comping the correct method?
How would you duplicate a section and re-use it when you have multiple tracks and you have to do the exact same manipulation on multiple tracks?
Would you recommend NOT recording to two tracks but just record in stereo to one track, which would make fixing sections much simpler?
I could separate the L and R channel into buses afterwards if required, I believe...
Your help is greatly appreciated!
