I had to fix my computer - lost the licences in a silly mistake, so to check all was back up and running - I tried recording some stuff and it sort of turned into a song - The only mics I'd not taken to the other studio were two very old Shures - SM61 and 63 - both omnis. quite a bit of wind noise and a bit poppy, but not really much I could have done without going and getting some stuff. The only bass I had available was the Hofner violin style Chinese guitar I had (and like). It sort of stretched and morphed. It does have a catchy chorus though......
Picture of our updated mastering studio. My interns and I have been working on this since the beginning of summer. New bass traps, all wiring redone, new setup of the mastering desk and all equipment checked for proper operation and phase. BIG JOB FOR MY INTERNS AND THEY DID PROFESSIONAL LEVEL WORK!!!
I am so proud of them...
Hey I've been thinking about setup of a new template. I generally use a fair bit of bussing for submix/groups. Like grouping the kik and snare and tom drums to their own bus, then feeding those busses to a drums bus. Ditto for vocs guitars keys ect.
So my question is if I set up a vca for say the kick drum bus, can I then have the ability to turn up the kick drum, without effecting the gain staging to the drums bus. I'm trying to figure out how to turn up tracks or groups without effect what I'm feeding to the compressors that are further down the line.
I've got 4 Accusonic/Show amps (2 x PSA-3900, 2 x PSA-31500), all four of them were working in all modes (stereo, bridged, parallel/mono). The following day I was testing them out and all of a sudden all four amps only work in bridged mode but not stereo mode or parallel/mono mode. Has anyone ever seen or heard of this before? I'm testing each one on their own so it shouldn't be a power supply/voltage drop issue. The only thing the four of them had in common is that they were all plugged into the same power bar running through a DBX Driverack PA2.
I wrote and recorded the attached track over the last week. Before going live with it, I'm wondering what people think here. Do the lead guitar parts sit ok? I'm worried I've mixed a few of them too loudly..
