Recording music using my iPhone only

​As I mentioned in January this year in this post here, I was looking for ways to play live again via Zoom or something else.

​And I am happy to announce that I am now able to record my music using my iPhone only. Actually I am ​using my iPod, but it pretty much has the same features even though it is a hundred years old.

Being able to use my ​iPod to record myself properly is a ​great ​new beginning because this way I can get a good feel for my sound while I practise my songs. ​I do have a whole home studio to record my songs, but for practising ​it is easier to record myself only with my ​iPod. This is fun!

Any way... so here is a first snippet of ​my song "WANTING"​ recorded with my ​iPod using ​only my acoustic guitar and my voice:

​If you are interested in how I set up everything to record myself this way, ​scroll down for some photos and below them you can find video links to who and what gave me the idea to record myself using an iPhone or iPod only.

​This is an easy way to ​make a tripod for your iPhone if you are looking for a quick solution like I did:
​DIY iPhone tripod​. The video is in German, but you can easily follow the instructions. And as you can see in my photos I simplified my set-up even more.

And here are three videos about recording a song with your iPhone:

​​​​Let's see how long it will take me to get from practising to either playing live via Zoom or to sharing my live recordings in some other way. I will try my best to speed up a little :-)

Enjoy :-)

About

Hi there lovely, I'm Jouleeyah. Before I was a Spiritual Healer, I was a singer/songwriter and a vocal coach – doing healing work only part-time. But at the age of 35, I felt called to play with Spirit more intensely and to turn my music-making into a professional hobby, instead. And now my life is about helping you to infuse every area of your life with health, self-love and success. I live in the very south of Germany in a city called Konstanz which is surrounded by beautiful nature, a lake, a river, mountains and two other countries – Switzerland and Austria. My Blog is a playground and journal for my creative expression – music, art and healing work.
