I discussed this with the band before the session. The guys were happy with headphones so that's what we went with. The amps were isolated just to keep options open and to keep the drum recording clean. For example we have already overdubbed a new guitar solo on one of the tracks and that would not have been possible had the amp or a monitor been in the same room bleeding into the dum mics.

Re: Recording a Rock Band

Good stuff Freddy! That stuff is sounding really good...

We are almost finished laying our drum tracks around here, I think we have 2 more to go. Then we are going to finish the guitar work and hit the vocals. It's a slow process.

Re: Recording a Rock Band

for me and my band we ended up recording w/ an electric drum set first w/ us- which worked well- then our drummer went into the studio and re recorderded- my room mate bought an alesis adat in college and i scored a mackie 1604- and i actually still have the adat- cool i loved and hated doing mic placement for ambient- but when you got your sound- it was the best

keep up the great work

I do all my editing and rough mixing at home on a pair of Yorkville YSM-1 monitors with subwoofer. But my room lies and so do the monitors, they always screw me over right around 2.5k (the crossover point) and the crossover point to the sub as well.
Once I have everything edited for content then I'll mix at a studio I work in on a set of Meyer HD-1 monitors. I love them. There are also a pair of Genelecs right beside the Meyers...you can see them in the photo but I don't like them much. Still I will switch to them now and then just to give me another perspective.

You are correct. That is the OR296. But I'm no fool....I use it only as a controller, never actually passing audio through it.

Re: Recording a Rock Band

Seems just like yesterday when Genelecs were all the rage, how quickly the tides turn on monitors. I have not had the pleasure of mixing through HD-1's though I heard a pair, set on stun. That sort of ruined the experience for me but I was not driving... I would have liked to have heard them at levels for us mere mortals.

If the vocals sound half as good as the rest of it, I'll need to know where to buy the CD!

Re: Recording a Rock Band

Yeah I use a pair of Yorkville YSM 1 's for monitors. They are actually a very nice sounding speaker. But my lie too, the 500 hz - 1.5 khz range. Anything mixed in my tiny control room will sound very muddy when leaves there, but will sound quite nice in the room.

That's pretty nice control room there Freddy 8 channels of red huh? Nice. I have 8 channels of 428 they work pretty nice. I use them on drums mostly. Can't wait to hear the finished product. Are you going to master it yourself? Or send it out?

Depends on the band's budget. I find it very difficult to master my own work, so I hope they do send it out for a good mastering job.

Thanks! Probably be a couple of months, we need to do some more recording, new songs, out of the 12 songs we recorded I suspect that maybe 7 are good enough to make it to CD.

Hey thanks man!
I was very happy that I was able to use the vocals from a previous take as doubling/thickener during the choruses. Testament to how locked into the tempo they were because ther was no click.

Sounds Great Freddy!. The only thin i say it could be better is the impact of the voice in the chorus, for me and this is my personal point of view, is that its powerful, yet it is not feeling that big!, i would try to do some harmonies to make it pop out.

I know with the master all will sound more tight and fatter.

Re: Recording a Rock Band

I really dig the vocals, particularly during the chorus. I'm particularly fond of taking a progression somewhere I wasn't expecting. The big yell he does near the beginning of the each chorus is killer. Don't necessarily see it coming, but it surprises you and sounds great.

Re: Recording a Rock Band

Here's another mix. This one was written about 4 days prior to the beds tracking session. The band recorded it on an I-phone and sent me the demo. Although the demo is pretty rough I thought there was a pretty decent tune in there so I said, lets track it and see what happens.
So just to illustrate the progression from raw demo to production I am posting the demo they originally sent me...here it is:

And four days later this is what we tracked:
