Hi,

I have been recording my whistle playing using my phone which is an Android but was wondering if there is a relatively straightforward way of doing this over a backing track.

I don't need anything too hi-fi as it's only for my own amusement and to send to friends and family.

So basically, import a backing track to phone and then record over it.

I've been going round in circles on the internet trying to find something that will work.

All help gratefully received :D

I'm not an Android guy but if you Google "android multitrack recording" there are lots of hits. If you were on iOS I could give you a number of suggestions. Just about anything that claims to do multitrack recording should meet your needs.

How about simply playing the backing track on a CD player, playing your whistle to it and recording both at the same time on the phone? I think that would be easiest.

If you want to go deeper into audio processing and have a PC, I recommend Audacity. It's free, it's incredibly powerful and I know very little about it - but it certainly allows to put several tracks together;

When I record tunes for YouTube I have a guitar backing track recorded on an MP3 player then play it back with a small X-Mini speaker and play the whistle along with that and record the whole thing on my PC. It's a very basic method but it works for me. I find the X-Mini to have a really "Bright" sound that doesn't loose too much sound quality when it gets re-recorded. I've never tried it with a full band type backing track, but with just an acoustic guitar recorded it works fine. You can pick up an X-Mini for under a tenner on ebay so it may be worth a shot.

Regards,
