    Shoved the camera in my chops for some lead tracking today Not the greatest take but you get the idea :metal:

    Borrowing some super tasty shit from Ryan (Mr. S) for the next week. The Sunn is being used on a couple of tracks, one of which is titled 'Rats In The Sun'. It dawned on me how fitting it was that I'm using a Proco Rat into the Sunn for the rhythm guitars for it :lol: The Les Paul will also make...

    I was tracking bass to one of the last tracks on my EP last night and filmed it because I'm a prick like that. It's meant to have a sort of stoner vibe to it, not really "metal", but it's still kinda heavy cause I chose to do it in B for the extra lumbering feel. I recorded guitars for this...

    Needed something that was more reliable at tracking than the noise gate in my G system so I saw a Decimator Pro Rack G Stereo pop up and jumped on it. Even though I don't have a stereo rig anymore it'll come in handy if every I move back into one, or when I'm tracking two separate amps and want...

    Hey guys, my name is Leon, and I'm basically new to this entire section of the forum :lol: Thing is, the guys in my coverband are getting restless and want to start writing some originals. Since I've never done that before, it's pretty scary, but definitely exciting at the same time. What...

    A Mackie Big Knob that is. Was doing some tracking yesterday with the vocalist in my new band and the headache or having to send everything to a separate bus to output to 7-8 for headphone monitoring and having to manually fuck with everything made me pine for the days of having a Control 24...

    So in all my years of playing, I learned how to play very tight and clean. I rode Petrucci's wang on Images and Words and basically started with a proggy background that was about precision. In the last few years I'v been listening to alot more music that is more about the raw atmosphere that a...

    INTERVIEW: Metal production guru Colin Richardson | MusicRadar Pretty kickass interview. A little of his general philosophies and some specifics on Vultures.

    All I could remember were the chords to the chorus, the middle 8 before the solo, and the word "monkey" was in the song. Finally tracked it down by looking for "90's funk metal monkey". My brother used to say this was shite, but I fucking loved this. I thought the guitar playing and riffing was...

    *Disclaimer - I know you're not supposed to mix on 'phones, and for 90% of the time I do rely on my Yamaha HS80Ms. However, in an untreated room, I've found sometimes it helps to make EQ tweaks on phones, especially in the low end, and they're nice to do stereo spread sanity checks and the like...

    i finished programming the drums for my next attempt at recording one of my songs on Saturday so yesterday i mic'd up my cab and had a go at recording without isolating the cab, it was much harder to get the mic position and eq right to get a good sound but eventually i got there. i ended up...

    If you're tracking rough guitars direct, how would you guys do it? It's just for stuff to send to guys in the band and for when I get create and can't be arsed tabbing so it doesn't need to be 100% accurate, but what do you prefer? (I should be ordering monitors tomorrow :woot: )

    I'm recording a death metal band. We're doing all natural drums with the exception of the kick. All I have is really low end stuff. All of the mics on the kit combined are about $600. I uploaded a short clip with the drums isolated. I will update this thread when I have the whole mix with a...

    here is some footage of me pounding through one of the two new songs we've started tracking.... Sure SM57s on the rack toms, and snare-side. Oktava snare batter as well as overheads. Audix D6's in the kicks. Mike Blevins can chime in on placements, floor tom mics, recording software etc...
