Is this place a recording studio now?

I guess I'm a part-time sound engineer! Mr Dunson and I worked together to record lots of different instruments to create our own version of the Spin Doctors classic Two Princes.

Is this place a recording studio now?

The music block at school is now officially a recording studio, as I have been using a music technology program called BandLab to create my own version of Two Princes by Spin Doctors. Because I had made an AI-generated drum track, I had originally planned to make my own guitar and bass tracks with an AI-generated guitar and bass, but I was only a music tech beginner and I didn't like how they originally turned out, so I got rid of those tracks and replaced them with tracks that used a real guitar and bass. This is where things get real.

Me and Mr Dunson supplied ourselves with an interface and amplifier. He first picked up a bass and started playing the bassline for Two Princes. I then checked the track carefully, made some tweaks and edits, and I was eventually satisfied with the track, so we moved on to the guitar track. Mr Dunson grabbed a guitar and played the melody, and I did some edits like last time. I edited the recording until I was happy with it. 

In the end, it did turn out to be very short with no vocals or anything, but in the future I might it longer, change the lyrics and turn it into a video game-related parody song. To listen to it, click here.
