Home Recording Rough Mix

2 posts in this topic

We've been busy demoing tracks for our EP that we aim to release in August. This is a first snibbet of what we have so far. This was recorded in my old lounge room which was brick with high ceilings. It also had a spiral staircase that went off to one side where we placed a room mic to capture the natural reverb which sounded great from the drums.

All of the drums were close miked using Yamaha drum mics SM57's, Rode NT5s, Shure Beta kick Mic and a Newman for the room. The bass was DI'd and also miked using a Shure Beta 58 and Shure Beta kick mic. Finally the guitar was recorded using the Shure beta 58. We spent a lot of time chosing mics and on their placement to pick up the right frequencies and attack on all the instruments. Last but not least all was recorded using Protools and digidesign plugins.

We are still working on the mix so any creative criticism that you may have towards what would improve it or change the sound to make it better would be appreciated before we launch it.

Enjoy :)

Sounds really good!!!

The drums and bass sound nice and deep, with the cymbals and the guitars not too overpowering. The vocalist is placed well and comes through very well.

Good Job ;)
