Quick Rewind.

Here are a couple pics from the last session, which I had previously posted to Twitter. We're in a comfortable and warm-sounding room, and the basic tracks sounded really good straight into the machine, without the need for any EQ or compression up front. I simply arranged five mics around the kit, got them placed where they sounded best, brought up the gain to where the levels all matched, and hit the red button.

We're playing the songs live in the room, but very quietly, with me singing vocal cues without a mic. The bass guitar is going direct, but is also amplified, so there will be a very slight amount of bleed from the bass and guitar amps. This is intentional, and it will help to achieve the warm overall tone I'm looking for with these four songs
