hey man, i seen a lot of your posts on recording, and I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions? I have a home studio thats just in one largish upstairs room at my parents house, and I'm trying to make old soul/ r'n'b recordings that have a real vintage vibe about them. You can check out my page www.myspace.com/chickadeerecordings , listen to the song mean man, its basically the style we are going to be playing. I like the quality of it, but I'm wondering if there are any hints you could give me so that I may achieve the sound I'm pursuing. I'm going for a basically a stax/old motown/ new orleans/ james brown sound, I record my drums using 2 beringer pencil mics as overhead, kick miced with some cheap peavey mic. I also own 2 akg mics, one small, and one large condenser mic. I always record my drums and any other live off the floor tracks into a 1978 akai tape casette recorder, hen i convert that into digital, and do everything else digital using a ART tube preamp for my close micing, and a beringer omni mic run direct into my mBox. Im having problems getting the kick to come out, and maby with the attack on the snare. I want more of these, but I always have found that less is more in my recordings. Im looking for a sound thats between hi fi and lo fi, any suggestions?
I added a few new songs (exclusive to the Hideout) that are demos from my next CD (and one out-take that shows folks what happens when things go horribly-terribly wrong in the studio too) Plus some stuff that may come out at some point in the future. Enjoy and be entertained (or Naff Off!)
