This weeks recording sessions

Recording every day this week for the BOA charity cover of do they know its christmas.

I’m using a spaced pair of C414 XLS’s set to cardioid and a coincident pair (XY) arrangement of AKG c451b’s. Getting some really good recordings so far and should hopefully have some audio next week!

Another 4 recording sessions on top. 1 jazz singer, 1 R&B and 1 Pop original performances in the bag and sounding great!

Lastly a recording session at Kidderminster college last night recording acoustic guitar with Stuart Eaves for Lauren Wright. Using a coincident pair of Rode NT1A’s arranged on top of each other with a single Shure 57Beta for added clarity around the 12th fret.

See below for pictures. More audio coming soon!

Univibe studios – Drum recording – Bass recording

Thought I’d upload a few pictures of what I did for my birthday this year.

Recording session at Univibe studios for drums for Lauren Wright’s upcoming album. What a lovely studio right next to PMT music on Birmingham’s Eastside, a real gem with a vintage DDA AMR24 inline mixing desk routed into Pro Tools HD.

My particular favourite mic was the sub kick mic for the extra LF in the kick drum (I think it was similar to a Yamaha SKRM100).

Back recording bass and guitars at home in logic with plans to mix large amounts in Pro Tools 10 when it arrives. I’m recording my bass parts DI into Logic and use amplitube amplifier modelling to get an effective sound. Lots of comping here, have a look at the screenshots in the slideshow and a listen to the rough drums and bass sample below.

Lauren Wright album coming soon, stay tuned for more info!
