Sounds like your bass & acoustic are fighting for the same FREQ. Singer can be a little more melodic - kinda "pitchy" in spots. Nice textures though and airyness about it.

Unique Variety Of Rock - Give Me The Real Scoop

Here's some of our songs we've written and recorded. Most of these tunes are pre-production because we don't have a drummer. So the most drums are MIDI and or played (hacked up) by us - the guitar, bass, singer. Once we get our drummer, we'll go back and record the keeper-tracks. But the songs are p...

I like th BD better on the'spot mic' take, but I like the openness of the 'glyn Johns' version better for the rest of the drum set. The tune is cool and I like the vocal and guitar production quite a bit. Oh and a side note, it's time for some nicer cymbals. The pre-packs just don't cut it, especia...

Here's what I do: 1. Have the drummer start hitting the drum 2. Feel (with your hand) the shock wave - the actual air blast coming from the drum. 3. At the edge of the shock - where it starts to fade, move IN a couple inches - and that's where I place the mic (D12). And it's roughly center height of...

Glyn Johns Mic Placement - Side MIC - Interference With Ride

One issue with the Glyn Johns mic placement method: For the side-mic over the floor tom, (in keeping the same distance from the snare as my overhead), mine is about 4 inches away from the tom - which is good and keeps it out of the way - BUT, it seems to be right under my ride cymbal. This being pos...

I think you should go D.I. This way, you can always reamp to another track if it becomes available. Plus D.I. offers a lot of detail which might sound great in a punk situation - allowing the bass to cut through and be heard. And the Sans-Amp is a fantastic choice. Post some clips when you're done! ...

You might also try turning down the amp. Sometimes a little less volume and a little less distortion can help enlarge the tone. This is one of the MOST HELPFUL tips offered in this post. Perfectly worded as well. Turning the amp down (just a bit) and backing off the distortion will make a WORLD Of ...

Nobody? Well I don't have a mackie 8-bus or a Pro-Tools HD system but have used both and think if you really want to start mixing out of the box, you would be better served by saving a few extra $s and getting a better board. Naturally your money will go further with a used board then new and there...

Mackie 8-Bus and Pro Tools

Does anybody use a Mackie 8 Bus console AND Pro Tools? I have Pro Tools HD2 and a little Alesis mixer. I found a great deal on eBay and picked up a Mackie 8 bus 32 channel mixer. (something I've ALWAYS wanted). Allthough Pro Tools has it's own mixer, I was wondering if anyone uses this combo - and t...
