SoundBridge Tutorial (Part 3) – Audio Recording and Editing

November 8, 2019 8 By Kailee Schamberger


Hey guys, in this video we’re going to cover
how to record audio and make some basic edits to these clips in SoundBridge. Before starting this video, make sure you
check out the previous ones in this series to make sure you’re all caught up. Before we can record audio, we’ll need to
add audio tracks to our project. SoundBridge doesn’t add any by default when
we first start the program. To add an audio track, press the plus button
at the top. The minus button removes the track. The group button groups tracks, and the ungroup
button undoes this. The delete button removes the selected track
or clip. The first option when we add a new track is
the track type. We can set it to Audio, MIDI, or Return. Then we can choose how many tracks we want
to add. We’ll be adding 1 to start. I’ll name this track guitar. After that, we can choose mono or stereo. I’ll start with a mono track. Let’s start with the top buttons on the
track. The first button is Solo. When tracks are soloed, only the solo tracks
will play. If we press the M button, the track will be
muted and it won’t play. The A button shows the automation lanes. We’ll cover automation again in another
video. The next button opens the pre-gain and pan
options that controls the panning and level before the track is sent to the effects. The button to the right is used to minimize
the track. In the next row, the first button is the pitch
shifting algorithm. Lite is the worst quality, but uses less CPU
resources. Advance is the more accurate option, but it’s
harder on our CPU. The next button arms the track for automation
changes. The circle button arms the track for recording. The last button on the right sets the input,
and it’s set to none by default. Now let’s set the input. Press the input button to open the window. Then go to external, select the input device
and select the input. To start recording, just arm the track and
then press the record button on the transport. You’ll probably want to make sure you disable
looping before doing this, enable the count in, and you can choose to have punch in and
out enabled if you want. After you’ve finished recording, press the
stop button. We can reposition the track by clicking and
dragging it, and we can trim the ends by clicking and dragging them as well. We also need to know how to change the view
of the tracks window. We do this with the arrow buttons on the bottom
and the side. To know whether we’re zooming or sliding,
check the icon in the bottom right corner. If it shows 4 arrows, then the arrows to the
left and above it are used for sliding the view. If it shows a magnifying glass, it will zoom. Press that button to change modes. Pressing the left and bottom buttons zooms
out, and pressing the right and top buttons zooms in. Then click on the track to get more options
for it. The first control is the pitch shift, which
we can drag to change the pitch of the track. Below that is the stretch tool to change the
length. To the right, we have fade-in and fade-out,
each with a button to control the curve type. Then there’s a gain slider to adjust the
level of the clip. At the bottom, we have a reverse button to
reverse the clip, an invert button to invert the phase, a loop button, and a bounce button
to create a new clip. Thanks for checking out this video on recording
