    Hi folks,

    just recorded a new tryout to get a better sound in my kitchen.
    It's a simple fingerstyle cover of Knopfler's soundtrack from 1983.



    Greetings and have a nice weekend,

    Jimmy

    P.S.: Thanks for your tips TalismanRich :-)

    Jimmy,

    Sorry for the delay in commenting. I first saw this on my laptop which has horrid sound (as most laptops do) and wanted to give it a proper listen on real monitors.

    I like the way things are sounding here. The room's "hollow" sound, the slapback and background noise is much less apparent, which is a good thing. I think you're starting to push the limits of the Q4 (are you still using that?). To get a significant improvement, you may have to use external mics which may require a significant monetary outlay.

    I also noticed that you are doing everything in 480 resolution when the Zoom can do full HD. Is there a reason for this? It might eliminate the strange video artifacts on the strings.

    Other than that, all I can add is that it's IMPECCABLE playing and a nice arrangement. Its one of your best postings, and you've made a good choice with Going Home. I've had the Local Hero soundtrack for years, along with Sailing to Philadelphia. Knopfler writes some beautiful music.
