The lesson although good was the same, we talked, practiced key commands, etc. The main event though was being able to record an artist. I picked the microphones, techniques used, and the engineer was there more as a coach. The artist did a acoustic guitar and vocal track. I used a basic spaced pair for the guitar, a single microphone for the vocals, and another one for room ambience. I liked what I did, but I did wish I used a microphone with a darker sound for the vocals, and something warmer for the guitar. The setup itself was good, but I realize now that I need more practice with using the actual console. That will come with time though. I was only able to get the recording done and I plan on mixing the song as I complete chapters within the course.
