An interesting array of mic choices.
Aside from the beautiful guitar sound and stellar performance, what's most interesting to me is the use of a capo and the excellent intonation this guitar has.
What mics do you see being used here?
word on the street is that my live-streaming sound is a bit thin, and could be improved.
Here's the sound,
I'm singing through a Neumann U87, the guitar is through a AKG C3000. The Neumann goes via a Joemeek VC3. Both mics go through a Yamaha MG10 mixer, using its internal reverb (plate setting) and eq, then out via the mixers USB into OBS running on Windows 10. In OBS there's a gain boost and the internal limiter.
I am recently retired (mostly) and living in a rural community in Nova Scotia. We have/had a very active arts scene that punched far above our demographic, drawing audiences from ~150kms. All indoor venues are small (50~200 seats) but manage a few outdoor festivals each year that attract 500~5,000. Being the solo tech guy, and supplying all of the gear, I try to promote as many shows as I can while walking the technical and financial tightrope.
My retirement plan is to only promote and tech shows that bring me more joy than grief. Good luck with that.
For my vocal sessions (usually speaking) I'm currently using a Focusrite 2i2 and a Boya PVM-1000 mic. The interface is plugged directly into my laptop.
I have my Youtube channel going and all, but the audio is trash when I'm in my "studio" recording. I have gone through many searches when using Audacity. "normalize sound", "bass and treble", "compression". The audio still comes out SUPER "tinny" and "digital" sounding. I'm trying to find a solution.
Over the years I've gradually taken on the job of *the guy who records stuff* in the three bands I play in.
My setup is focused on staying portable and leaning towards fast/easy to setup and break down, with all of my mics plugging into a Zoom Livetrak L-20. I don't own any ribbons or tube mics, and unlikely to in the short term.
Everything else sounds like it should, but my drum recordings sound off. I know why.
Due to the fact that we cannot perform live at the moment we decided to do a live stream from my studio. We performed our CCR Tribute show and I also recorded the live tracks in the DAW. Guitar was played direct via the Kemper and the Bass was played via the Line 6 Helix.
We setup four cameras (vocals, bass, guitar, drums) and filmed the performance.
I edited the video and put the audio together. It was very successful and went down extremely well.
This is our version of one of the tracks – Suzie Q.
I'm new here and I signed up after thinking deeply about my recent experience while bored in quarantine.
The question I'm posing is pretty huge, so forgive me.
First of all, I'm a total noob when it comes to recording, but last summer for a number of reasons (mostly money related) I decided i would invest what little money I managed to save to get some gear and finally record my first album, with little to no prior experience.
In retrospect it was a bold and kinda stupid decision, but whatever.
