Basic Preparations for Recording Songs for Beginners

And you can choose the mix recording mode to record the two audio sources into a single file. So, it saves you time to combine them.

Option 2: Using a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW)
Using a digital audio workstation is the second option to record yourself singing with background music on a desktop or laptop. A free DAW like Audacity is enough for most non-professional song recordings.

Step 1: Install Audacity on your PC or Macbook.
Step 2: Import the music track.
Launch Audacity and click on File, select Import > Audio to upload the accompaniment track.

Also under the Recording tab, check Record on a new track. Then click OK.
Step 5: Select the recording and playback device for singing recording with background music.
Find the Devices tab also under Edit > Preferences.
Select your headphones as the Playback Device to hear your voice while recording. Select your microphone device as the Recording Device to let Audacity capture your microphone voice. Click OK to make the changes effective.
Step 6: Record and edit.
Click the red Record and Stop buttons to start and finish the recording of the tracks. After getting an almost perfect take, you can trim the audio and remove the part you don’t want.
Step 7: Export the recorded project.
Click File > Export and select your desired format to export the audio.
Option 3: Using a Social Singing App on a Mobile
