Lives for gear

Well, when we tracked this three years ago, great gear was hard to come by with my budget, soooooooo....the drums were tracked through a Mackie 1604VLZ into a Aaron's 001, and everything else was through the 001 pre's... fuuck dfegad

He wanted to track everything to his PT|LE rig...

Guitars were mic'd with 57's and the violins and cello were mic'd with both AT4033 and Oktava MK012s - I chose the better track in the mix.

The CD was mixed on my rig in '01-'02 which at the time was based around DP3. Shortly after that I switched to Logic and that's what this new mix was done with.

Just goes to show what results can be had on "budget" gear. I think the production and the playing make the track. I also have great sympathy for you over the 4033, number of people I have heard rave about them, but they always sounded pants to me, I've never been a fan of any single capsule, large diaphram condensors.

Regards
