Yep, we’re still here.
Obviously there’s not too much I can say about the music but Mark and I are continuing to shuffle along our merry path towards sonic bliss.
We’ve come across some interesting little discoveries with mics and pre-amp combinations and have been experimenting whenever possible and appropriate.
The other day we recorded a guitar in the big studio 1 area using his old Marshall JCM45 and cab. They were used on Brothers in Arms and Money for Nothing. Mark dug deep into the ’58 Les Paul and it was quite a noise. That’s a Neumann U67, a KM88i and a Shure SM57 on the cab. We also used four ambience mics making a total of seven mics for one guitar. Can’t say I’ve ever done that before.
