I found the article on overdubbing on Gibson's website very insightful.
IT'S OFFICIAL...Well, I just got confirmation...a British magazine called MacFormat contacted me about running an article on my home studio, Pepperland Productions, in the April issue! The article will explain how I use my iMAC and peripherals to record, edit, mix and master CD's of my original music. They did an email interview and requested several hi-rez photos for printing with the article, which is called "Me and My Mac." I will put an update here when it's out! For more info on the magazine, here is a link:http://macformat.techradar.com/
My latest studio shot after some recent renovations...
Doug Young, Eventually I'll post something. I have been experimenting using my submixer into a digital delay via the effects loop and then on to the digital recorder. I just keep tweaking it until I find a sound I like. I've been playing with the contact pickup and play with a dry signal down the middle of the stereo field and the delay unit panned left and right. I send it to the recorder as a stereo track. I also have a dry signal going straight into the recorder as a backup.
Maybe if you post an example of what you're getting from the pickup, we can make suggestions for how to make it sound better.
Does anyone here record their guitar using a contact pickup? I have an old Fender acoustic with a Shadow pickup. The pickup is old school too. I only ask because of the type of house I live in. It's a double home. My neighbors next door listen to rap crap and they listen to it very loud. Any tips for making the contact pickup sound more like a mic on an acoustic guitar.? Thank you.

I hope you enjoy my music.
Thank you Edward for the welcome! I'm composing mostly for film tracks for nature videos ... using a MacBook Pro, Presonus Studio One 2.5, and running thru the 44VSL digital audio unit into the Mac. My Taylor GS Mini directly plugs into system using the ES GO pickup made for that small bodied guitar - I haven't tried other mic setups with the acoustic guitar yet, but want to experiment with that more. I also have a Taylor T5 with it's built-in ES system, and an old Harmony bobkat strat I've had since high school. For a long time I used Cakewalk/Sonar DAWS on a PC based system, but in my particular setup, a lotta pops and drop-outs were occurring even with ample RAM and computer hardware. After switching to the MBPro I've not had any latency or drop out issues. Thanks for the links you've posted, I am going to enjoy checking out all the info here!!!
