    Default Got a new video out :)



    It's become tradition already to spam these here... You guys will probably like the '62 Strat that the studio owns though

    Really nice arrangement and great vocals AB. You said somewhere before you weren't really a 'strat guy', but I'm wagering the '62 may have you re thinking that....sits in the mix really well. What vox mic were you using?

    Ha, I've had so many comments on the strat It's the sound the track needed, though I still generally feel a lot better with a Gibson.. Vocal mic is a Shure SM7! Beat out the venerable Telefunken U47 that's literally 50x the price...

    Your vocals have improved! The mix is awesome. That SM7 suits your voice and the song for sure.
    Your style is solidifying you obviously are more comfortable with it. Dig the strings live in the room setup.

    Curious what was actually played back in the monitores behind you since you were on headphone, unless it's a video thing

    Great work and seems like a wonderfull place to record. I'd feel right at home in that place myself

    Thanks man! That studio is absolutely amazing... Great guitar collection (played a '59 ES175 on another tune, '58 ES335 on the record, as well as a '52 Goldtop and an amazing custom shop Les Paul), drum collection, mics..

    Really dug the SM7 too. Maybe not for pristine ballad stuff where you need that condenser top end, but for more rock stuff it's great. The vintage Neve board probably helped too though

    The monitors behind me were for guitar, just to excite the room a bit and to get some more sustain happening.

    Yeah, the SM7 works nice for your vox. Bruce Swedien used it for Michael's vocals on Thriller, I guess those guys could have used a U47 if they wanted also...
    *the Neve had more than a little to do with the quality of the vocals.

    Though they went back and forth between that and the, currently 10,000$, Sony C800...

    A Neve pre is a sweet thing... been lucky to experience that for 6months straight. So I dream of having a nice Neve pre (or clone of) eventually.

    Jaydee hahaha imagine a full board of those preamps... that's what I had worked on for 6months when I was 20. Ahh the good old days... with real vintage outboard.

    There's pretty good clone for less from BAE

    For mic I have a nice AKG already, but tempted to eventually pull the trigger on a Roswell MK47 which is a real gem.

    Also a Warm Audio WA76

    But before I can dream of all this I got to finish building my studio desk, just got the frame up last night.
    Started visiting hardware stores today for the rest of it... slow planning, baby steps and not rushing usually proves to get results I can live with for a long time. Hint I'm taking inspiration from a Langevin 1959 console...
