Well that was really useful. I got myself a nice audix kit for the drums and so far it sounded gorgeous, also re-learned how to better tune drums, changed skins, did some work, the singers are getting quite better and i'm trying new plugins.
As soon as i'll have something new i'll probably post it here.
Now i'm struggling a little to find a vocal microphone and became curious on the oktava 012, they seem to have a particular grain and if you reduce about 3 db on 4khz (if i remember correctly) the sound becomes really interesting. Cannot still understand if it does fit in the mix or not, i'll probably post it sooner or later.
In the meantime, what do you think of this? Youtube - Shine on you crazy diamond
It's a live performance recorded from mixer by the sound engineer that did the audio for us that day (this is another band ofc), i just took the stereo track and tried to do some mastering. Couldn't really fix the drums but i think it sounds good and it's not ear fatiguing. Altough i'm really sure it is, a bit. Could you hear any ear fatigue here?
