Nice studio btw! Is that your place? Commercial or private?

Good stuff, thanks for the upload. You get an A for effort!

Thanks man!

I agree, some face melting compression and it could be a cool mid 8/intro/outro thing, or possibly a nice addition (parallel) under the kit.

The studio is commercial, it's owned/ran by my local County Council. We run some nice gear in their. The 412 went straight into our Audient 8024 but I could of used our 1073dpa or drawmer 1960 or even our RED1. lol. not a whole bunch of amazing stuff, but enough.

They have some great engineers but they're really safe guys. I come along and throw a spanner in the works!

hi fakekid


that video linked to was a record I was producing.

I thought i might have come up with a unique idea at the time, but i guess not any more!

it produces a very dark, long sound. its not good on fast songs with lots of beats, but it works great on slower songs where you want some length on the kick.

where you put the cab matters a LOT.

id say try it. you might like it, you might hate it. its certainly not useable most of the time, but you might find one song that it might work on.

for the record, i was running mine through an api pre (i think) and then an LA2A where it was compressed pretty hard.

cheers

Hi,

thanks for the reply!

I did some testing here, with pictures.

Download Marshall1960DrumRoom.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way (excuse my poor drumming, didn't have long to do it.)

I just ran it into our Audient 8024, I thought it was useful for an effect or maybe parallel under the kit, unfortunately I didn't get enough time to get the full kit mic'd up to be able to hear what it could be doing. Are you running yours stereo?

I'm sorry if I have spoilt anything for you
