So I Lied

Remember the post I made last week, where I said I wasn't going to upgrade my rig? Well last weekend my daughter came home from college for the day and I was showing her our practice set up in the basement and she told me "You need to see a Kimbra video on YouTube" which I did, and I discovered she was using a TC Helicon VoiceLive Touch vocal processor, which does everything that our 2 units do - in one unit - and it does more and easier... So the next day we took our old equipment over to Guitar Center and traded it all in for the VoiceLive (plus a small amount of cash, of course), and the thing showed up here today.

There is a learning curve with this thing, and I realize I need to make a set of presets for my specific needs, but I did these things this evening. I'm not completely happy with the mix as picked up by the iPad's microphone. I'm going to have to come up with a better way to record what I'm doing - finding the power supply for my M-Audio recorder would probably help a whole lot - I can record HOURS of mp3 on the 1GB flash drive in there. But, as I've promised to show you my process, here are the raw things I came up with tonight.
