Britain in the 60's early 70's small condensers for live vocals.


Hey everyone,
the burning all know this..and i think its a culture thing...sure you can tell me.

If you watch the whistle test on u-tube, like on Be-Bop Deluxe, or watch Hendrix at Isle of Wight, you have the old two mics tapes together, which you see a lot from that era, i get it, recording is a totally separate feed.
(very thorough Micing on Isle of Wight, on the drums). Also, I've seen pictures in Motown recording pictures,they use small diaphragm condensers. But in America (especially with Wally Heilder) he would not

Recording drums to sound big in a small room for hard rock/metal projects

I would like some feedback. I just finished an iso room in my studio to track in. I’m a drummer and I will never have the square foot or height to track ambient drums. I’m ok with that and I’m fine with adding room post tracking. I guess the biggest challenge I face is getting the drums sound big enough for hard rock/metal projects. Here’s a sample of arecent drum sample I tracked in the new room. I added the room sI'm post tracking.

Youtube screws small content creators, what do we do ?

Hi gang,
Most of you know that I started a small youtube channel and I try to post informations about audio recording, video et photography. Mostly audio for now.

The Youtube parner program, other than offering some additional tools, give back a part of their revenue from publicity.
6 month ago, they changed the rules by asking a minimum of 10 000 views to being allowed into the program.

Making the most of a small room

I was mucking around today playing along with a track from the Antelope Zen demo stems from Sweetwater.

I liked the room they originally recorded in and the original drummer was amazing.

My room is 15 by 30 but has a low ceiling about 6 ft 3 I've made my room dead as the original surfaces are Cinderblocks and concrete. As a result it can sound boxy.

Super Small Mixing Room 2,9m x 2,1m x 2,59m - advice needed

Hello there,
It's my first post here but I've been around for couple of weeks now just reading and gaining knowledge from this great forum as well as other places and books I found.
I'm planning to move my composers workshop to a dedicated room which is rectangular and very small (2,59mH x 2,1mW x 2,9mL = 8ft 6in H x 6ft 10ft W x 9ft 6in L). All plastered concrete.
I decided to do some reading and designing before I'd do anything but of course I am full of doubts and unknowns.

Small waveforms for keyboard tracks

Greetings. I was asked to play guitar and help record a band that's like Lacuna Coil. Always up for a challenge, I agreed. Mostly, we are working remotely. I received the keyboard parts recently, and when I imported them into Studio One, I noticed that the wave forms are nearly invisible. I can hear the tracks, but I am wondering why this would be. Does have to do with the level that the keys were originally tracked? Or is it something else?
