I'm definitely not a sound engineer (or musician for that matter!) and I hardly did any adjustments for gain or mic placement on these takes, but I think it came out pretty good for a first try. It's three overdubbed tracks...I recorded a rhythm part then listened back through headphones and played the melody over it (both with my tenor banjo). Then I had my wife get out her bodhran and add some percussion. She wasn't that pleased with her playing last night or with the sound she was getting out of her drum, but I think she did OK for someone who has only been whacking a bodhran for a few months.
By the way, the tunes we recorded are Whalen's Breakdown - an old-timey sounding tune from Canada in the key of C, and Tralee Jail - a hard driving Irish polka in Eminor (also spelled Tralee Gaol; known in Scotland as Haughs of Cromdale).
I intend to do many more recordings with the Apogee MiC to document our musical progress. It's portability also makes it great for taking to jams or sessions!
