Back from Lyon with David’s drum tracks on my hard drive. It was a great recording session though very intensive. Actually, it seems that we had a lot more to do than for the first album. We both feel that drums have gone further and David had many great ideas. I was always asking for more and he did a really great job! I can’t wait to hear the result on my studio speakers and start to mix the drums. Actually, they already sound great. Unlike the first album, I won’t tweak the drums so much. David’s drumkit sound is stunning! Very open and natural. We worked hard on every parts, spending hours and hours in this small dark room searching for the best fills. We hope you will enjoy the result as much as we do. Next step is the vocal recordings and then bass recordings.
Tama Starclassic from above. We are particularly glad of how the snare, the kick and the second tom sound. This time, I recorded the snare with two microphones and it sounds so much better! We used three Shure SM57′s and one SM58, one Sennheiser e609, two Oktava MK012′s and one Shure Beta 91. A better set of microphones than what I used before.
Toshiba Satellite in action with a M-Audio Fast Track Ultra 8r which worked smoothly with a very crystal clear sound. It was great to record drums with Reaper for the first time, it worked flawlessly!
Beautiful Meinl Byzance ride.
