for those who rock with CE

::IMPORTANT:: Make sure yor beat don't start until 5 second's after you hit the record button
this is letting the microphone pick up everything because even if your wearing headphones the mic
picks up the beat and when it does that it interfers with the noise reduction and if u don't let
the mic pick up atleast five seconds of nothing and u try running a noise reduction your vocals
at the begining and some parts throughout will make you sound computerized.....

::IMPORTANT:: Spit like 1 1/2 feet away from the mic. it'll pick up what your saying i got a pop
filter and a windscreen on my mic but it adds that extra touch you get no pops on your p's etc.
it just gives nice clarity...if you don't spit 2 feet away from your mic start with step 4....But
i'll tell you it gives it a more professional sound.....

after this your ready to record after u spit your verse follow these steps.....

---------------------------------

directly above where it say track 1 you'll see vol|eq| bus click on eq and insert this preset.

M -2.4
L -3.8 <for high pitch vocals like myself> +3.3 <for low pitch vocals>

---------------------------------

2.) Effects->Amplitude->Normalize

and just Normalize to 65%

---------------------------------

3.) Highlight those 5 seconds u didn't spit and the beat wasn't playing now go to:

song is to save as tape quality for internet enjoyment)
