Microphones, Audio Latency, Tuning Gears, and Writing Melodies
The UU Team is back! And they're starting off on the Right Foot. With no technical problems, the guys dive right back in with Recording Tips, Microphones, and Home Recording suggestions. Aldrine asks Kahai and Aaron how their Holidays were, and makes an announcement about his own Youtube Channel. While Aldrine attempts to open a gift from a member, he also answers questions about Alternate Tunings, and playing with a Guitarist. The team discusses how difficult it is to change your own Tuning Gears, and what are some good replacement brands? Each UUer explains their process for writing melodies, and a winner for the last Songwriting Challenge is picked. The episode ends on a teaser for next week!
