Tell us about your last location recording... Condenser Microphones

Fletcher, I believe Kooster used a truck down there that had 4 Yamaha 02R's, 48 tracks of MX2424 and seven DA88's as the back up machines. And from what I understand they really needed them.


So, let me tell you about my last location recording...

We went up to Boston again to record "The Donnas" at the Paradise Rock Club. Man, I love that joint. I know it's small and stuff but, Aura Sonic has a lot of history in that club! We have that place down to a science. The "Dice" got great management and an awesome crew. Tim McKenna and the staff rock everytime we're there!

Anyway, we recorded the Donnas for Atlantic Records via Tascam DA78HRs running at 24 bit. The show will also be aired on Boston's WBCN this coming Saturday. Check it out if you're in the area.

The Donnas played to a sold out crowd and really rocked like the best of them. I loved Allison's guitar work. She's totally on the money and great to work with!

The producer of their current record, Robert Shimpy was also running FOH for their tour. He was very helpful, on top of his game and a really super guy to boot! Rob helped us get all the song keys together, so we could use our H3000's voice pitch quantizing feature for the live 2mix we did for WBCN. It worked out great.

Multitracking the soundcheck is the only way to go when you got to provide a 2mix on the spot. Why keep the band around playing song after song if it's not necessary to their needs? We can tweak the mix until we got it right, while they do their own thing somewhere else.

classical guitar

I'm a beginner in this world of recording.
I recorded last week a concert that I played in Boston, MA, with contemporary music for classical guitar, in a beautiful church, with two neumann km184, dav preamp, rme ff400, and cubase.
It was fun, but it is also complicated to record and be aware of all when I also had to play...

Classical guitar fits perfectly in small churches.

Lives for gear

This week, it was mostly brass ensembles. You've got to love people who can actually play - alone AND together. It makes our job so much easier!
