First Neve 1073 test

This is a live studio recording, 3 piece band doing a Who cover.

8 mics in my live room, no overdubs, no EQ. The only effect is TL-Space on the Vox.

The setup:

Drums: AKG 451C stereo pair ORTF into the ams-neve 1073DPD.
Drums: D112 Kick - into the C|24
Drums: SM75 snare into the C|24

Bass: MD421 C|24

Vocal: Neumann TLM-103 Avalon 737sp
Background Vox: Sure SM58 C|24

Guitar: SM57 C|24
Guitar: MD421 C|24

All the faders at zero, guitars and OH panned hard left/right everything else in the mono channel.

The Neve is just incredible, no words to describe - I need 7 more of them heh

Hey Raid!

I love the overhead sound - without sounding corny . it feels and sound vintage.

Thanks guys.

As promised, tonight I'll post up just the OH tracks. I'll bounce it as a .wav file so it's not destroyed by MP3.

I'm going to be running vocals through it at a session today, I'll try to post up that as well.

Peace!!

Some of my favorite albums both musically and sonically are: A lot of the stuff off of the Crowded House best of album, "Recurring Dream" Crash by Dave Mathews (Produced by the Jedi Master himself Steve Lillywhite) Vauxhall and I by Morrissey, (Produced by the Jedi Master himself Steve Lillywhite) Phish, Billy Breaths, (Produced by the Jedi Master himself Steve Lillywhite) Hmm, I think I see a pattern... Oh, and for digital recordings I think that John Mayer, Room for Squares sounds great.
