I'm new member, just join day before Yesterday. I'm from Toronto, missisuga Canada, interested in learning classical guitar.
I read many post on this forum about setting up a mp3 audio recordings.
My setup is as follows:
1.Electrovoice dynamic microphone with cable and canon connector.
2.Two input Focusrite 2i2 audio mixer
3.Audacity software setup for mp3 output
4.Windows 7 home edition, Dell inspiron Desktop computer
5.Mono output cable from Focusrite mixer to Computer Line in input.
6.Headphone/Speakers for listening the recorded pieces.
I did play few notes on guitar and recorded it in Audacity, then exported it as mp3 file to be played on Microsoft player.
I'll read now on this forum, how to submit this Mp3 test file to forum for viewing and listening.
Thanks to all members for helpful advices.

Thank you BobM for the info,

The links (especially the last one) were very helpful. I just plugged my classical guitar with the Kremona bridge pickup into my computer's sound card microphone input (not the line input) and started "messin around" with Audacity. The sound is acceptable to me, with very little noise. After I work out the fine tuning details and come up with a decent performance of something, I will take the plunge and post an MP3 to this great website.

Thanks again,
P de V :merci:

I have a mac (MacBook pro running Os 10.13 - High Sierra) and have installed Audacity 2.30. Do I need to install LAME also?
