just got back from the studio! Mark Lewis got one of the most amazing drum sounds i have ever heard in my life (the snare especially!), i knew he was an amazing engineer but good goddamn, i didnt expect it to be this good! This will be my first time mixing real drums, so keep your fingers crossed and lets hope i dont fuck them up too badly when im mixing the album hahah!
Orbo really held it down like nothing else. He has been practicing the songs obsessively for the last 5 months or so, and as a result ended up tracking the 14 songs (of which one is the rather long "racecar") in 2.5 days! (pretty much the same amount of time we spent just setting up the drums and getting the perfect sounds!)
Anyways heres a clip, albeit a rather crappy sounding/looking one, of Orbo jamming and tracking. On the plus side, he brought his HD camcorder with him and recorded the whole session, so all you drummers out there can look forward to that in the near future!
