Dumpster ......down the road........wwwwaaaayyyyyyy down the road.

Theres no way to tell you how to do these things. It either works or it dont...................

One thing......NEVER use your best mic or a ribbon on these. NEVER.

And pad the crap out of well as compression. If you have a nice outboard compressor, it might just save ya.

well i have a few good compressors. a destressor, a few uries, and some other ones.
Its in my programs first year studio. I am returning a favor to some one who played on one of my sessions and helping record her families band.

Should i attempt to close mic it with a 57 or sm7? or perhaps a mic on the other side of the room?

So the piper never showed to the session, and thats fine by me. i was able to record and produce a really good session for 3 hours.
even has a step dancing call and response section with the drums.
once i get my monitors and have the free time i will mix it and post it on here.

God i miss that studio.
