Hi all, I am just starting out recording bands. In a few weeks I have a recording session with an indie-rock band coming up. I will be recording them in a well-equipped, but very small studio. There are no iso booths or chambers to put the guitar and bass amps. This poses a few problems I'd like your advice on. Basically, I'd like to record as much as possible live, because I think the performance will be better this way. But I am afraid that the amps will be much too loud on the drum mics, given that they are all in the same room. Do you think I should go for overdubs or will I be able to isolate the drum kit from the amps using Gobo stands? I don't mind spill from the amp mics on the drum mics, it should just be within reasonable limits. If I opt for overdubs, how can I ensure that the guitar and bass players get a sound they are used to on their headphones? Obviously I can't give them the DI signal on their headphones because it sounds toatlly different from what's usually coming out of the amp. My idea was to turn down the volume of the amps until I feel there is not too much spill on the drums mics and have the band play this way. Once the drums are recorded the rest of the band would then do their overdubs with the amps at normal volume. The downside of this would be that the spill on the drums mics is not from the same performance as the actual bass and guitar tracks. But I don't think this would be noticeable. I reallly appreciate your advice on this.
