Re: First Black Metal session.

Sounds like everything's been covered and I'm in envy. I would love to record a black or death metal band one of these days. That stuff's part of my roots! \\m// One other suggestion = you're going to need all the low end space you can get so high pass the cymbals, rhythm gtr, the rack toms, and any...

Re: Lofi Mics and Techniques

Cool vocal/voice technique although I suppose you could try it on anything... Call your own answering machine on a cell phone while in the same room as it.
