It's actually pretty easy to record yourself singing harmonies. You probably already have anything you need to sing harmony with yourself and record it.

Best Free Recording Software - Audacity Open Source Software

Download the free software called Audacity.  The link is below.  Audacity is an awesome, open source software program that includes most features found in expensive audio software.

How to Harmonize With Yourself Using Your Computer

Plug your headphones or ear buds into the jack for that purpose.  Also plug in your microphone into the correct jack on your computer.

Go to sounds and devices in the windows control panel.  In the audio tab, go to sound recording and click the volume button.  This should take you to the windows mixer.  Find stereo mix and check the mute button.  If you can't find stereo mix, look for wav out and check the mute button there.  Now close the windows mixer.

Next open the Audacity software.  Click the preferences window.  Check the box that reads "play other tracks while recording new one".  Click OK.

With Audacity open, start recording by pressing the red button.  You should see an audio track.  Sing your heart out using your microphone.  Press the yellow button when you're finished.

Now start the song over by clicking on the purple arrows that point left.  Simply repeat by pressing the red record button again.  Sing harmony and press the yellow button when you're done. Do this as many times as you want.  You can sing all the harmonies and more!

      Hi, this is great! Just more of me to drive everyone mad with my singing! lol I am always warbleing in my house, and my son plays keyboards to harmonize with me. seriously, in a sense this is a bit like he does on the keyboard. he builds up the background, saves it, then adds a bit more, then saves, then plays live to the background. great thanks nell
