Hi, i'm looking for a few expert recording engineer sugguestions on how to possibly improve a guitar sound a bit. Firstly, i'll give a little background on my setup. I'm running three mics: One cardioid to isolate the sound, one condenser for a little bit of crispness and a tube in the room. I...
I'll be recording some water-farts in the near future. They'll be both shower and tub waterfarts. They'll need to have a clear sound, an impedance, and preferably cheap. Also, if they "accidentally" touch my eye afterwards, will I get pink eye?
What we have here, is the collaboration project between myself, Greg, RocknRoll, Superbeatballer, and Dogman.
Greg did the drums and backing vox.
RocknRoll did Angus' right guitar part that starts after "the sound of drums" and backup vox too.
Superbeatballer did bass.
Dogman did backup vox...
I posted this elsewhere, but I thought it was kind of a neat idea. I had 2 hours to myself at the house today and decided to learn a song as I recorded it. I chose the Shins' "New Slang". The vox needs some work, the bass is a little too low, the main acoustic is a little boomy, but overall...
I'm re-wiring the old studio and I'm tired of making my own cables. I'm probably going to get these, but wanted to see if anyone else had tried them first.
Whats your, obviously first hand!, experience?
I forget who it was, but about a week ago someone said that their dream guitar was an old tele deluxe. I told them I'd post pictures of mine. Here they are.
Its a '73 deluxe. Mocha (crap) brown. Beat all to hell. Sounds great.
I'll be passing around the collection plate momentarily...
OK, to make this not completely off topic. What mic should I use to record the press conference that is going to happen shortly? I want some crowd noise, but not too much. Should I do an x/y pair, spaced pair, or just one mic???
Ok, its not the Smashing Pumpkins, but its the next best thing. I'm playing in a S.P. cover band and we're playing in Raleigh, NC on the 24th at the Lincoln Theatre (www.lincolntheatre.com) at around 10 or so.
