Single microphone. Single take.

I recently returned from a week at the magnificent Bop Recording Studios in Mmabatho, South Africa where I had the chance to record a few tracks in Studio One on the Focusrite Studio Console. Nothing was planned ahead but I am very happy with the results we achieved in those few days.

The one track was recorded using a single microphone - Pearl Microphones CC22 condenser microphone with rectangular capsule. No EQ, compression or effects have been applied. Only very slight limiting was applied during the final bounce. The pre-amplifier duties was done by an ISA110 module on the console.

The track can be listened to here: https://soundcloud.com/dewaudio/hone...tride-recorded

The artist is David Stride from Johannesburg and I am looking forward on doing his debut album production very soon and hopefully a big part of it at Bop Studios.

It seems such a waste recording a single channel through that massive console - but dont dispair, we did record some other tracks as well using more channels.
