Hello from France,
I'm looking for some advices to upgrade my home-studio.
Right now, my sound seems a bit "muddy" to me, or lacking something I can't put a name on. To put it blankly, what is coming through my monitors is very different from what I hear in front of my instruments (in a bad way).
I started recording 5 years ago, have learned a lot from scratch, but I'm still a beginner. So I was wondering what I might have missed. Is it only my skills or maybe better gear could help a bit ?
Here is my latest recording : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPT4NEVnVMM
Current setup Mics
2 Neumann KM84 Preamp
Avalon U5 Interface Card
MOTU 828 MK2 Monitoring system
Fostex PM-2 MK2
I play and/or record a variety of instruments, from guitars to mandolin, bass to cajon, autoharp to banjos or dobros.
My biggest issue is trying to record electric guitars and drums.
Thanks a lot for your advises
