I tried to make poorly recorded (that I didn't record) drums sound good without the ability to trigger/drumagoob/sound-replacify. I now understand why DAW guys and mixers for hire use such tools so often.

Technically, this was yesterday, but I recorded drums for my band's Christmas single.

We broke every rule as we've never rehearsed it and we basically wrote it as we recorded guide tracks the night before.

Turned out pretty good. Heaviest Christmas song I've ever heard!

I finished packing up the last item to move to a new place. Moving an all analog studio is a bitch.

What I actually did was to go to Knotts Berry Farm. Saturday I started editing a live album I tracked a month ago. Client liked what a little judicious auto tune did to the background vocals.

I think this will be a really quick & easy mix (knock on wood). :rolleyes::D

Finished up electric gtr on a metal piece I'm working on. Wrote 16 bars of a piece I want to collaborate with Darwin Martin on. The mighty Ricky Rigsby on Bass. Played with new iphone 5.
Carry on.

smoked cigs, drank wine, stared at my guitars and read these forums. at least so far, I just asked my Bong if it could motivate me.

Today I... Totally lost the plot while Mixing Drums for a track.

Wisely, (I think) I am going to take the MIX down for the day and approach it again tomorrow. :-)

Cheers,

Co recording drums and guitar for a band I play bass in. Drummer finished 2 songs, guitarist got tired... Slow rainy rainy day. Still raining right now, need to get out of bed, find decent coffee in Bournemouth and go back soon.

Started doing a software rebuild on the DAW. One or 2 issues won't go away and are beginning to really piss me off, all I have to do is find the spreadsheet with all my registration & activation codes.

Could be a LONG day

Tidied up, de-cluttered, cleaned, vacuumed and realised (once more), it's my favourite place to be.

Recorded a grand chamber orchestra! Tons of fun, though I'll definitely need to get another 24ch of AD for next time...

Sounds fun! Yesterday, I worked with 2 other engineers to record a 50-ish piece symphonic wind ensemble. The instrumentation was solo violin, harp, upright bass, flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, saxes, trumpets, trombones, French horns, euphoniums, tubas, and a full orchestral percussion setup with vibes, marimba, xylophone, tympani, tubular bells, orchestra bass, snare and toms, plus more misc. percussion. It took all the mics that all 3 of us had to cover, and we used 30 of 32 available channels. Mainly, we used a pair of Blue Blueberry's above the conductor's head, close mics for all soloists, 1-3 mics per section, a mic for each percussion station, and room mics out in the hall. We had about 3 hours to set up before the ensemble arrived, then spent about 3-4 hours tracking the piece, one segment at a time. The conductor was great, he helped us soundcheck everything extensively, and he had plotted out how to break the piece down so we'd be able to assemble the best takes later. It was a student ensemble, but they really had their stuff together. It was hard work, but a lot of fun nonetheless.

Awesome!
Yes, it certainly is hard work but working with classical music is so rewarding! My setup was similar, though smaller. We had trumpet, trombone, violin, viola, cello, clarinet, English horn, oboe, bass clarinet, grand piano, vocals, classical guitar, electric guitar and two percussion kits - each consisting of marimba, vibraphone, glockenspiel, two timpani, crotales, snare and chimes. Being restricted to 24 inputs, I ran out of channels quite fast
The crew consisted of myself, my assistant and the composer. I will definitely bring in a dedicated mic-man next time!

Let's keep this thread going ... It's nice to have somewhere to post quick thoughts that don't deserve their own thread.

I ordered a pair of Equator D5 monitors this morning. Company is in San Diego so I should have them tomorrow. Also Mr. UPS man dropped off two big boxes from Sweetwater

Did a little "temp" mastering on some very old material that is getting re-released.

Ordered RAM for my new-to-me super slick G4 mirrored door Powermac!
Stoked, never had a powermac of any kind before.

Loaded it up with PTLE 7.3, gonna slave it to my Macbook Pro PTLE 8 rig so I can feed 32 outputs to my console!
(I happen to have two 003's)

Hopefully the RAM will help the machine run happily at the 64 hardware buffer setting. If so, I can maybe track on the slave rig as well as mix!
A tad awkward dealing with two computer transports, but I tried it with an old PC a few weeks ago and it worked like a charm once I got the hang of navigating around...

Good times.

Day 3 of pop/punk mixes while checking out EA's new verbs.
Used Phoenix verb to great effect!
