After months and months of time spent with my Sonnox Oxford Equalizer, I just bumped into this terrific, super short write up done by Scott Smith at Legendary Tones.
I’m reposting here just the very core of it, worth studying by memory.
This means, practically, that everyone one of you, every single one of you recording their guitars – no matter with what and how – should at least read it 10 times and maybe, print it out and stick it on your monitor. I have 😀 (more…)
Legit question. I disappeared. Not that you should care, but if you wondered… sick children and… Back in Black.
I’ve been stuck into re-playing/re-recording Back in Black.
It’s my obsession, but it is also more rational than simply being something I do for me: I did say it back then, and I’ll say it now more than ever: I want to nail every main AC/DC record tone down to the bone as much as possible and document it, step by step, with video, pictures (microphone positions by the inch; settings of any kind, … ) and text. This I feel is a mission I love to be in and also, in modern times, something that there is need of even for the future (documenting the classics).
It’s been days that I wanted to nail the tone 100%. Not simply “close” “yeah… almost there…” but really 100% (well, 99% will do).
I want to do one last try. I tried almost every possible combination of what I have here (in terms of, mics, position, loudness, settings, … ).
I know, the room, the mics, the outboard (console, preamps, … ). A lot of things I still don’t have (and will likely never have).
Bought a new soundcard, better than before (better mic pre’s), it’s a FireFace fourhundred:
