Is that a stack of car tires behind the piano?

Wow, that stuffed car tyre thing seems like a great idea for absorbers. Especially in a truck it will give a real ON THE ROAD feeling.

Manchester was the scoring engineer for the new movie "The Night Listener".

Should be in theatres this August.

So not as cool as most of these pics... and very simple

Recording the Lark String Quartet at the National Academy of Science hall in Washington, DC for NPR. I was the assistant on this gig.

The hall sounds like it looks. You can hear everything, everywhere, and it is NOT musical. But it does look neat.

Adventures in Bar-Room Recording

I play guitar and sing in a 3-piece rock'n blues band. Lately, I've been recording our live gigs, the band does 11 orginal songs that I wrote and I'm hoping we'll get a live album together one of these days. Here's a few photos or the recording rig used last Saturday night.

I used three transformer splitter boxes on the vocals. The mics on the guitar cabs are just for the recording rig. The drums are mic'd by a single overhead PZM and a Shure Beta 91 inside the kick. The API preamp is for the drum mics and the Grace preamp is handling all the other mics.

I like recording at this Mexican restaurant bar because the room is big enough that we can really PLAY but we don't need to mic the amps so it's not too loud. It reminds me of living room parties I used to play at in high school. The women all dance right in front of the band.

The big guy is our drummer, Tony.

Okay, here's something (I bet) most of you remotesters haven't seen...

Tons of DT12 mults, fiber, coaxial and such during breakdown of a multi truck gig we did a while back in 2006...



Pretty wild, huh?

Just worked with Manchester again on a film score. We did a string date at Legacy A509 (used to be Right Track)

has (well, it hasn't arrived yet) an RME madi card, so I'm planning on running reaper to have a lowbudget back up multitrack solution.. Reaper can use any input as smpte/ebu tc source, and records BWF... Can't wait to see if this works okay, Anyone tried this?

I did a big band session the other day. It was in a great room but they only have "modern" mics.

4 trumpets with 2 U87
3 trombones w/ 2 U87
5 saxophones w/ 3 TLM 170
Guitar with some kind of B&K pencil mic
Piano w/ 1 FET47
Bass w/ 1 km84
Drums with 1 mic km86

If I had it my way we'd have RCA 44s for the brass or some other big ribbon like AEA r84 or Coles 4038. I'd rather have tube mics on the saxes like U47/U67/M49 or a modern alternative like Lawson L47

I'd like Schoepps 221b on guitar, piano, bass and drums, or an M49 on the piano and some tube SDC or LDC on the drums.

I'd also like some slutty pre's but all we had were the ones in the desk, an eighteen year old Neve V.

Otherwise, this thing was done old school. I'll post some mixes later.

BTW, we didn't use any headphones except me (the conductor) so I could hear the singer in the iso booth. In the first photo, our lead trumpet player had some cans for a section that he played with the singer, other than that, no cans. You could hear the bass everywhere in that room.

Kaufman Astoria Music & Sound, formerly known as Master Sound Astoria. Great room, great vintage Mason & Hamlin AA.

Alas, Legacy A509 was booked that day.

Here's one end of my modest but effective rig for classical music recording for FM broadcast -





My response to the need for all powered gear to be safety checked and certified at least once a year is to have everything battery powered - and it's surprising how liberating it is not to have to spend time hunting for a power socket when arriving on location, and wondering how to route the mic leads and power lead to an acceptable meeting point where the gear can be set up.

Apart from the familiar Edirol R-44 the other item with knobs is a custom built (by Naiant) monitoring mixer which provides dual headphone mix from the four outputs of the R-44, plus a switchable monitoring input from the R-44 headphone out (which provides solo monitoring) or from a backup stereo recorder. The monitor mixer's stereo output is fed to that backup recorder via an output level control. It seems to me that proper monitoring is often overlooked in multichannel recorder design, and I couldn't find a suitable device on the market, so commissioned my own functional design.

The monitor mixer is very light and can be powered by internal or external power.

The pointy end of the rig is a Sennheiser MKH series MS pair (nicely supported by the R-44) and spot mics by AKG, Oktava, Sony, Rode, or Naiant.

I get the four channel recorder, monitor mixer, two backup recorders, ten mics, two pairs of headphones, gaffer tape, battery packs, and sundry accessories all into a modest sized holdall. It's a pity that mic stands and cables are also normally required else my mobile truck could be a bicycle!

Recording Vid

Hello,

I had the pleasure of recording a demo session/writer's retreat for a company that plans cruise events.

The artists: Emerson Hart, Aslyn, Pat McGee, Stephen Kellogg, Ryan Newell (guitarist for Sister Hazel) Mike Daly (Producer and former member of Whiskeytown.)

The setup: This was just "to capture whatever happens." So, All Vox thru 58's, Guitars thru DI's and 57's, and the grand piano had a pair of 57s underneath. The house was a very large hunting lodge with multiple rooms for writing. The artists would break into two groups of three, create for a couple of hours, then we would capture the performance, wash, rinse, repeat.

Seven songs in two days...pretty impressive!

The chain: All mics and DI's into a Focusrite Octopre LE, and out to a DBX 1046 or (forgive me) a Beheringer quad comp. From the comps into a Mackie Onyx then thru the master outs to the Mbox Mini. Everything was done as "performance" to two tracks, mainly to eliminate hours of "tweaking." The event was more about the writing than the recording.

A video with a medley of the seven songs is here.

Amazing event, getting to watch the music being created, then captured!

Steve,

More "slutty" photos for you.

The piano room was a real pain. Tile floor, piano in the corner.... We actually had five open mics in that room (2 piano, 3 vox) at one point. Decided not to open the top as the bottom placement isolated the instrument better.

The performers in the photo are Stephen Kellogg, Ryan Newell and Pat McGee, recording a song called "Peaches." (It's about drinking.)

The monitors are Dynaudio BM5a's. They are my mains for mixing, and were used here just as playback.

The facility is called "The Bluffs." It's a hunting retreat in Augusta, Georgia. Amazing place with the best staff!

We're going back at the end of the month with (hopefully) nine artists this time. Will post better photos then.

Recording @ The Station Inn Nashville....

Snapped these last night @ the historic Station Inn here in Nashville for Mike Farris & The Roseland Rhythm Revue....the RCA 44's are truly fantastic mics...and I also like the fact that the gain knob on the pre is the size of an average door knob....

one XR and one standard....in this case, one was just a direct back-up of the other, XR first....I just monitor through a Mackie 24.4 vlz.....great sound w/ those mics in that room into the XR, I really wish they belonged to me!....

here's another front shot...it was cramped where I was setup, thus the bad angles on the pics!

here is a photo looking up at the little array we have used a few times with an SF12 and a pair of 4006s.
i dont have pictures of the racks but the pres were Avalons and a Buzz SSA going into a 192i/o

on a quick listen of the mics/pres i would of chosen to run the SF12 into Avalons and the 4006s into the Buzz, which later when comparing pres in more detail i found to be the right choice. A nice hall with a hemispherical ceiling at each end which reflects the sound back perfectly. a great sounding recording from a simple setup.

Not the best shot but its hard to get good ones when the mics have to be so high.
