Last night in my garage I did some whistle recording. None sounded good, but I noticed that if I set the little mini recorder I have in my lap, it sounded better than when I set it a couple of feet away. My garage is a 1 car concrete floor , Im guessing it was acoustics. But I never would of guessed it would make much difference. When I recorded a few feet away the whistle sounded so whiney.
I am wondering, was the sound echoing off the walls and coming back to the mic again??

Some room sound is a good thing - that's why we have reverbs and delays, to kind of sweeten the recording. try different rooms for different sounds; the bathroom is a good choice too. You may get some odd looks, but also some good recordings maybe :laughing: .

You may have also been too close for the mic, and overdriven it. Hard to say without hearing it. There's lots of good advice here on recording. You can import wav files or mp3's into a free program called Audacity and get some nice sounding tunes. You can also multi-track with it, meaning you could record over a mandolin or guitar track. There are delays and reverbs within the program you can also use.
