    i'm in a band and we are 6 guys
    guitar/backing vocals

    we have a behringer 1802 mixer
    we connect a shure sm 58 about 2 feets in front of the drums
    guitars go direct line out from amps, like the keys! one guitar is panned almost hard left and the other almost hard right... the keys go half to the left cause the right guitar is the lead!
    vocals center and backing vocals at 11 o'clock
    bass amp doesn't have a line out so we put a shure sm 57 in 1 inch of it...

    the results are just fabulous! great sound and we can all understand our songs!

    Your must have very low standards for sound quality if you think that sounds good.

    when you don't have pro-tools and motu and stuff it's pretty good...

    people with good gear worked hard for their gear and it does make a difference.

    Beringher pre's cannot give you good recordings...sorry.

    Dont be so cynical - it depends on what the guy expected. Ive actually heard really good recordings of drums made with just a single China mic. Sometimes one can be lucky with mic placement. Why not, inLoco, put up a link to the song you recorded...

    I don't mean to be a moderator here, but I think that we should not use this forum to insult each other.
    Why don't you pm each other?
    Let's keep this forum instructive, free of meaningless replies...

    Thank you,

    Thank You Thomas!

    Thomas ... if you want to moderate, like in this case, please feel free to be my guest! I could not have said it better myself!

    How can you possibly make that comment without hearing the recording? After all it's a rehearsal recording, not a record. It may be fine for it's purpose. Let's extend each other the benefit of the doubt and a little common courtesy..

    I am now going to edit the comments to reflect a kinder and gentler RO :D

    Now that's what you want from a rehearsal recording.
    Many bands are happy with a dictaphone in the corner of a room and a good imagination...

    Been doing something similar with an 8-track portastudio at band practice. Not for public consumption, but priceless for keeping tabs on the status of the songs and the band.

    I agree, all you stuck engineers that make fun of people that dont have the money to buy the best equipment on the market. I am 19 and record out of my house and dont have the best equipment and i have compared my recordings to studios in my local area and mine are just as good if not better. I have been seriously recording for about 2 months and i am getting very good results from helpful people from this forum NOT from people who like to cut down people that arent as advanced as them, is the point of this site is for everyone to learn something
