Talking

Hmm, we have to do that!
This is the train station,where I live and there is a pretty long tunnel underneath it!!!!
It is much wider than your tunel and has a small river floating through it.
This might be crazy!!!!!!!
I think I have to take pictures and post them!
Where are you locates? PM me !!!!

This is the view from the outside. On the right you can see the concrete, where the drums would be located. in the middle theres kind of a rough ground, but mic placement should be no problem there.
On the left there is the Seeve
The Tunnel is about 2meters in height, on the right side, so there are funny romm modes :D,

This is a view from inside. My cellphones flash isn´t that strong,so the pic is pretty dark.

I managed to photoshop one of the pics.
here you see the Seevetunnel in all his beauty
It´s soooo claustrophobic in there!!! I was scared !!!
The Tunnel is 250-400m long. I didn´t walk through it all the way, but this should be a ballpark. IT IS LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG!!!!!!
Every 50 meters there is a emergency exit xD
I claped my hands and the reverb was sick!!!!
One loud slapback around 500ms and one echo after ca.500ms and a long and smooth tail
One downside is the noise,as there are trains rolling over the tunnel
But I think that could even be a plus.

There has to be something recorded inside of this beast! Although I don´t think that the rolling drumriser would be a good idea in there.

+1 very nice. Cymbals almost a little too washy, it might be nice to try mallets? Great ideas all around, I love recording in odd places. Before it was torn down there was a giant abandoned hydro-electric plant right here in Richmond on the James River. Mates and I used to go in there with a couple of 12-packs and make noise in the old locker rooms until dawn, some of which were recorded but not very good.

I really miss that space!

Very cool Christian. I love that type of session.

I've used stairwells for drums too, but we set up the drums in the recording space and then feed the drums to speakers in the stairwell.
I like to place a speaker on each landing (or every other landing) and one or more mics at the top of the stairwell.

I then send whatever drum channel I want into whatever speaker I want.
You can choose the furthest and/or closest speakers from the mic(s) depending on how long of delay you're looking for.

You can even split up the channels and send the toms to the furthest speaker, the foot and snare to the middle speaker and the cymbals to the closest speaker for different delay times within the same space.

It's an awesome way to capture drum room tone because you can control the amount of delay time for each channel at the same time.

All four tracks. No use going back and forth making adjustments when Routine can get it how he wants it mixwise. He may also want to isolate and loop certain measures, quantize, add a few hits, etc. (I've done some regional touring, but not a session drummer here.) I used the Wizard from SendSpace.

Wow.

Duh.

I just realized I live right next to a freeway. With a walkway underneath that has a ridiculously long verb. The 405 in Los Angeles, right by Tito's Tacos... And I could totally take my laptop and my Mbox. And some brass. And I just ordered 2 of Sahiaman's Little Blondie mics that should be showing up tomorrow...I can't think of a better application to try them out!

Think this one might need some more work before I call it a day on my end... Will post links when I have them...

comments and suggestions are welcome.

As I'm from the Band as well as MidasHatesGold, I would like to give a short feedback.
First : Thanks for that work!!!
Tough this is some kind of roughmix (the song itself+the horns) it sounds really impressive but for some parts its too much/loud.
This is anyway related with the hard panning of the source song. I really look forward to the next production step, when we will complete the mix und tracking of this song. If this is done, the horns will be the big dot on the i.

P.S.
Sorry for my bad english

So my freeway experiment didn't quite go as planned - after about 5 minutes of tracking a large shirtless man came walking up and politely asked us to stop - needless to say we didn't get the awesome verb'd trumpet on wax. That said I can vouch that freeway overpass reverb sounds amazing on trumpet. One day...

That said, I added a few tracks with the little blondies and spent some time cleaning some shit up and taking some shit out. I will send you guys a link when I've got the session file uploaded.

Here is a zip file with all of the horn tracks in it. Pro Tools 7.3 session. Didn't get any freeway tracks, but did record a few with the Little Blondies anyway just so as you could hear what they sound like on trumpet (an NY Bach Strad from the 30s)...
