    Default Fender electric uke sound sample

    Hey-o! I have the Fender Nohea ukulele and I just got a Fishman pickup installed. I used a USB guitar cable (available at Target) and played around with GarageBand last night.

    It doesn't sound too bad…Fender Uke

    it sounds good, alot of bazckground noise. I dont know if garage band cleans it up, but I know that adobe audition can in 2 steps. I like the sound though.

    that may have been the settings I used, GarageBand has all these amps you can pick from. I think if I recorded it as an "acoustic instrument" it would be super clean.

    The settings are fun though, you can make a uke sound like all kinds of styles, 70s groove, heavy metal solo, nashville, 80s pop. It's pretty fun.

    Sounds fairly bright, almost like steel strings...

    I'm with Ian on this. The uke almost sounds as though it has steel strings. The tone is nice and clear. Which Fishman pickup did you have installed?

    I really like that sound. Seems like there's a lot of directions you can go from there. Keep experimenting and posting.

    Thanks.

    While I realize a lot of the sound is probably filtered by the software, this has made me more curious about trying a Fender uke. I'm not sure whether to thank or curse you for that. The only one that really appeals to me is the solid mahogany, though - the Pa'ina.

    Again, I have to agree with you, Ian. I love the look of the koa laminated uke, but without electronics, I can't see buying it... unless you opt for Tuscadero's added electronics.

    I just figured out why there was all that extra noise. I set the input in Garageband to Stereo, instead of Mono, whoops. When I record with the input setting as mono it reduces the noise quite a bit, I think. It still sounds a little bright, but I think that's just the way it's going to be.
