Re: Bash this........
Thanks, yeah the vocals will require the most attention I think. I agree about the backup, but I think when we bring them down, that should do away with the problem. We were running out of time that day, and the vox were the last thing we did. Apparently, we needed more time.
The acoustic guitar wasn't "DI", and I don't think it was out of tune, we used a tuner. It was just tuned differently. I'm the drummer, so I know nothing. They use weird tuning styles. Crazy bastards. They're too caught up on it being "different", instead of "good", if you ask me, haha. We need to be both!
The drums were recorded in a BIG room. The whole place is virtually open, no walls, etc. He does have a soundroom and a small bass room (more like a closet). And get this B......he uses absolutely no overhead mics on the drums! None at all, just 1 for the snare/HH, 1 for the 2 mounted toms, 1 for the flr tom/ride cymbal, and 1 for the kick drum. For some reason, they sound pretty good. Maybe it's the brand of mics. Again, I know nothing.
Brandon, we'll be looking to book at your place some time next year. Don't know if it'll be an LP or EP yet, but we'll let you know a few months in advance. Cheers!
