I have seen a post up here before about it,
But here is another one.
Yep, to keep that live feel we are tracking gtrs for an album MAINLY live, two at a time.
We are taking mic AND DI signals from both guitarists, the plan is to augment their sounds with re-amping to the studios Engle, Vetta, & combo amps at a later stage.
Its working really well so far..
We are getting a lot of 'live vibe' & rock passion.
I think we are sacrificing a LITTLE accuracy but the vibe makes up for that.
Also beneficial is that getting the basic sounds is easyier as we are getting the 'whole picture'.
It's fun to watch the performances as well..!
Viva la rock!
I will try to post some pictures
We are recording 6 channels in total per song
Marshall heads & 4 x 12's - Sm57 - Neve 1073 - Fatso - Cranesong Hedd converters
M149 ambient room mic's - (cardiod pointed at distant walls away from cabs) API - Prism converters
Evil Twin & Little Labs DI boxes to Prism converters.
