I could have just kept the sessions on the master drive, but carting bulky… View this post

    Provided by Sweetwater.   Q: I’ve tried using overhead mics to add depth to my drum recordings, but all they do is make the recording sound washy. Any advice? A: A well-placed room mic can certainly add depth and space to a recording, especially on drums. But sometimes a room mic ends up picking up too much of a particular instrument and drowning out the source you were hoping would benefit from the room mic. A gate can be an… View this post

Now, this is certainly my opinion, but I feel that acoustic guitar was meant to be recorded with a microphone. The direct sound of an acoustic guitar just never sounds good to me. I am an acoustic guitar player, so I’m certainly biased, and there… View this post

    Located a short walk from the heart of downtown East Austin is a 1600 square foot recording studio known as Good Danny’s.

Every year during the five-day SXSW music festival 40 bands invade Good Danny’s, courtesy of the Daytrotter Music Service. That’s eight bands; recording two to… View this post
