Though I'm not new to Logic, I am very much a newbie when it comes to recording anything beyond virtual instruments. (My apologies in advance to George Leger, but everybody's gotta start somewhere.): I have a very simple setup, with regards to recording vocals. A Shure SM58 is wired directly into my audio interface, an old ULN-2, which goes directly into my computer. There is no hardware mixer or outboard gear of any kind. The headphones come directly out of the audio interface. I've been able to get by up till now, but the headphone mix has been completely without reverb or any other effects, which I then add afterwards on playback. I'd like to learn how to record vocals by monitoring effects, but not recording them. Once I get that under my belt, then I'll need to learn how to record using a compressor or limiter to smooth out level spikes, and still only monitor effects. I know that this is basic recording 101 for most of you, but for me, engineering is something that I'm being dragged kicking and screaming into. Unlike playing & composing, engineering doesn't come naturally to me. I need step-by-step instructions on how to do this. Can someone assist? Thanks!
