Yes 2 tracks are good enough :) You know, of course for me it's a pleasure to mix for you everything you want by the way I guess it would be interesting and useful at least to try mixing a simple two track duet. Let's say Audacity is a good choice as a multitrack audio software, also to add effects (usually reverb) to your vocals, so when you (even you both) are ready to "take the long jump" and switch to a semi-professional tool I'd suggest Audacity.

We do need your advice, Heracleum, but we might not need you to do it for us. Not yet, anyway. I downloaded a free audio editor today. It's an updated version of the same one I used to use. It's called "Sound Engine". It's just a 2-track editor, but it's all digital, so I shouldn't lose TOO much quality by re-mixing on previous mixings. I'll see what I can do, and maybe ask for more help later. ( (Lusi, send me your test track in the same key as you sang it before. lol) ) Good news.

I think we (Howard and I) Could send our vocal tracks to you and you could mix them.Would you do this for us, your friends??? ;) Ehh?? Well, I'm sure Howard would be very happy with it like me too!! Kisses for you two my dear and favorite friends! :) See you!!

Because I do not have any software such as you describe where I can see the waveform, nor any way of producing separate tracks for a multi-track recording. I used to have a two-track wav file editor, with which I could merge 2 audio tracks into one track, by visually lining up the downbeats. Then with the click of a button, it would create a file that was made of both of the original tracks. It may have been similar to what you described above. That was on an old computer... I suppose I will just have to get Lusi to sing her version first, as a solo. Then I will use her recording as my "backing track". It won't be as hi-fidelity as what you can do, but it's the only idea I can come up with. (Unless you have a better idea for a newbie mixer with no software.)

It depends on how the Partner (P.) -obviously- recorded his/her track: if P. send you a "trimmed" recording, starting immediately with his/her voice only, the Mixer should use his ability (and super-powers :D) to find the point where this recording starts from: it's not recommended to use "ears" eheh you should use your eyes to graphically recognise the shape of the waveform where the very first word is sang and place it in the correct point. This is why a Midi background music is perfect for mixing: with the help of a melodic track (commonly used in midifiles) you could look at its starting note and vertically align the vocal track with this note. It depends on the software and it's not easy exactly as you were afraid of. Thats'a why the P. should avoid this pain to the Mixer (M.): when P. receives the background mp3 track s/he should place it as a first track of his/her multitrack audio software, then records a vocal track. This track of course will have blank spaces (silence) before and after. When P. exports this track the trick (trick-track??) is to create a full mp3 starting exactly where the background track starts, no matter of silence: this way the "origin" (0:00) is the same for both. So when M. receives this vocal track s/he just have to place it at the beginning of the music project, starting at 0:00 as other tracks does. This avoids the hard work to find exactly where the Partner's vocal track starts. Following this directive, if P. has to sing 3 parts in the song s/he should not compact the three parts sticking 'em all one to the other, because this will multiply the mixing troubles. I hope I've explained it well. PS: Lu's track was exactly the worst case possible I mentioned above ahahahah! :D ..but of course it's all my fault! I forgot (or better, I was too lazy) to mention these steps and I've been punished ahah, noo I'm quite used to do such things so no problem at all, but I suppose it's very hard for a newbie Mixer.

Lusi says she won't be the mixer?? We're in trouble now! Haha! But maybe it <b>solves</b> one on the problems I came to ask you about, Heracleum. I came here with two topics to discuss: First, I was wrong when I said that the computer's "default recording device" must match the Flash Settings Panel's recording device. I purposely experimented by setting my computer wrong, and the Flash correctly. Flash seems to override. So no worries there. Never mind what I said above. The second topic is this: In the duet Lusi and I are planning, it starts out with the female voice singing two verses before the male voice comes in. If I were to send her my vocal, how on earth would she be able to start singing her part and have it match up with mine when my part came in?!? It seems impossible! And yet, YOU have managed this same feat in your duet with Lusi, "We've got Tonight". How did you do it?? What's the secret? (((But if Lusi says she will be the <b>Partner</b> and I will be the Mixer</b>, this might be a moot point for us.))) Still, it's an interesting question. Hi Heracleum, Hi Lusi,
