I rarely put moon gels, or tape, or pillows, or anything on or near a floor tom.

Nothing but a stick.

BTW The Heil PR40 sounds really nice on the bass drum.

That's nothing.

Chuck Norris only has to stare down the soundwaves in mid-air and they will go all the way down to the final CD disc all mixed and ready. That is how good Chuck Norris is.

Chuck was once in the audience at a show I played.

We were psyched.

He probably didn't even need a ticket.

Because he roundhouse kicked Ticketmaster, which subsequently exploded.

Oh...and cool studio, Cliff!

Another weekend  Smile
What shall I try?
Maybe acoustic guitar and vocals?
Life is Grand!

So my first project is coming up in a couple weeks. A jazz trio, nylon acoustic, upright bass, drums and vocals. I heard the guitar and vocals, sounds nice, kinda like "Girl from Ipanema". Should be fun.

  I did some scratch vocals on my Rode Classic II, I did them in the control room. What a great mike. Up until now my best mic was an AT4047. Thats a nice mic also but the Classic II is way more accurate. I didn't get around to acoustic guitar but I have a feeling that the NT-5's will be nice.

So far, very good!

Drums;
   I have already recorded drums a few time and to be honest I have yet to get a bad sound. One of the takes the crash was a little loud on the left O/H but an adjustment on the mic fixed it. I am very happy with the sound of the room. I guess its a little dead but its easier to add than take away. So far I have used 4 mics only. 2 x NT5's overhead, Heil PR40 on bass drum and a 57 on snare. On all except one the 57 ended up muted.

Nylon acoustic guitar;
 I have had 2 runs at this. The first was a Rode Classic2 on the bridge and an NT5 on the 12th fret. I got great results but I felt the Classic2 lacked some clarity, may have been the position. I also got too much click bleed so we decided to re-do it. The second run I used an AT4047 on the bridge and an NT2000 on the 12th fret. Very nice! super clear and full of body.

Steel acoustic guitar;
 Used the same set up as the nylon with the 4047 and NT2000. No complaints, full and clear.

Bass guitar;
  Tone tone tone!  Early 70's P-Bass into an early 60's B-18 with a Jess Oliver speaker. I used the Heil PR40 about 2" off the grill in the center of the cone. The volume at about 6. Into my Summit limiter then to the API. Heavenly rich and thick!!

Rhodes;
  Nothing serious here, I just wanted to hear how it sounded. I ran it to a Fender reverb 63 RI into my Vox AC/30. All I did was stick a SM58 in the middle of the the left speaker. It sounded great. I think I will try the Heil on it next time.

Scratch vocals;
  The first on I did of myself in the CR with the Classic 2. What a great mic. Super clear and no added highs. The second was a client doing a scratch in the tracking room. I used the 4047. Sounded quite nice, again the room is almost dead. Next time I will roll up the floor mats ans see how that sounds.

So far I am very satisfied, Its so much nicer than what I had before. Smile

Hooray!
That time of year, Vacation!
To tell you the truth, if it was not for sake of the wife I would stay home in the studio.
So, I will put up the hurricane shutters on my house tonight and am on the 8.30am flight to Abaco in the morning. 2 weeks chillin with my J160E and the wife(my 2 women of choice). Swimming,fishing,diving and ducking storms.Hopefully the laptop will work again so I can still communicate.
Ya mon! Very Happy
