How multitrack recording works is assigning each recording to a different track. A way around this is to record the vocals to track one, then your harmony to track two. Save that as a single recording, or mixdown, then open that saved mixdown to track one. You may need to be connected to a computer to do this.
I use the same technique when using Cool Edit Pro (outdated, yes, but I've been using it for 4 years, and I know most of the ins and outs), especially on the guitar tracks, where for studio sound, you've gotta use 4 total tracks. Putting two tracks together frees up your processor, and uses less in the way of effects, as well.
Well, did you run the vocals through a mixer and send to BOTH channels of the Lexicon Alpha? If you connect the mic to only one channel you will only get one channel UNLESS you process the .wav file and PAN the vocal channel into both channels when outputing to your MP3.
Here are some good links for you:http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ ( Audacity is a free recording program ) also:http://www.reaper.fm/ ( Reaper is the software I use and is full featured and worth the licence fee and free to try) also:http://www.recordingreview.com/ ( excellent site to answer all your recording questions. Note the free download.)
You could record short "samples" to be used in building new voices, however, it does NOT appear that you can record a vocal song with the PSR9000. The Tyros II and III have the capability to record vocals but the PSR9000 and Tyros I do not..
When playing back an arrangement, you can re-sing the song and have the vocal harmonizer track the arrangement.
Whichever works best for you is best. You can always lay down a scratch track for each like this and then lay down another track to replace whatever you didn't like using the scratch track as a guide. Erase the scratch tracks that you don't need before you mix down. I hope this helps.
I'm not totally familiar with that Boss Digital Audio Workstation but it sounds like what you want to do is record both the music and vocal track at the same time. If that's the case I believe you can push both "Line" and "Mic" input buttons (perhaps not exactly named as such) at the same time to record both simultaneously. Otherwise I would suggest copying the music to it's own stereo track (or two individual tracks, each panned opposite from one another to maintain stereo) and then record your vocal track separately. That way you can record several takes and edit down the best parts to one final track.
I hope that helps.
