Discussion in 'Recording Studio' started by Freddy G, Jan 31, 2012.
now that's a nice looking/sounding guitar
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.
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.
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
Sick guitar sounds Freddy! I'm loving this so far!
I'm going to post a mix on Friday. That'll give me a deadline so that the usual "analysis paralysis" doesn't set in on me
It's sounding f'ing amazing man!
Just a curiosty, what are you mixing through monitor wise?
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.
i don't like the genelecs too!
they are reference for nothing.
looking forward to hear the mix
that mixer looks like and updated version of the O2R
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.
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!
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?
Here's a mix
This track has only two overdubs, the megaphone parts and the guitar solo.

I like it. I like it a lot!
when can we buy the CD?
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.
the music is not my cup of tea but it sounds phenomenal!!
