Like the other day, you will another video snippet in this post today too. I did cut it from one of my longer videos that I recorded outside recently. I created some abstract effects for the video because you know, I still like to be partially anonymous. The chord progression I played came out of nowhere, it was a spontaneous idea. Also here, the internal microphone of my camera did a great job to capture the sound of my new western guitar but in this video, it sadly also picked up a little bit of the wind sounds and the sound of a nearby generator or so. Anyway, it’s still decent enough in my opinion. The chord progression is really cool, it’s not a complete idea and just jamming. I also tried a different tempo at the end. Here is the video…

Put some tremolo laden slide over the top with some low-fi splashy drums and you’re done!
Due to the wind sound and generator sound, the video has a low-fi vibe. So, I thought the same as you, except for the slide but I agree that would be cool too!
Yeah I noticed the recording wasn’t as pristine as the one you did previously
It also seems to be the distance to the smartphone. The closer the better as it seems. Logically, but I mean… really really close is best with the phone mic. I wanted to make the guitar louder with compression during editing but it seems I also made the wind louder.
Anyway, it’s good enough to just capture some ideas that I might pick up later again. That was the whole idea. I enjoyed the end of summer with the acoustic guitar so far. 🙂
Yeah all about the distance isn’t it. If you had izotopes noise restoration software you could actually remove the wind noises…but in this case it’s not a big deal. Just good to the idea down.
That tool is on my wishlist too. I have an old version of Izotope Ozone, their mastering plugin and I love it. The noise restoration tool is probably equally cool. 🙂
It’s incredible what it can do. RX8 has just dropped…
