Hey im just getting into recording and have found that everything recording i have done so far to sound... um idk clean and new im not sure how to explain it. I have cubase 4 and a firepod. a bunch of sm57s, beta 52, akg perception 200. im looking for that 60s/70s style sound without going into analog. please exscuse me because im a complete newb so i don't know if what im asking makes sense. Im a huge fan of 60s/70s stones, blue cheer, 70s aerosmith, ten years after, the beatles, byrds, cream , t.rex and all that jazz. Stuff like eddie kramer. should i look at some colorful mic pres or are their micing and mixing teqniques i should mess around with? Doing stuff live? idk so if anyone could help me out that would be great!
