Finished up part two of the kick mic review for recordinghacks.com. Visit this link to read/hear more http://recordinghacks.com/2013/05/26/d12vr-m82-shootout/
This is what happens with two drummers & a pile of synths.
Just some collaborative Drum & Synth noodling that I wrangled Don Gunn into creating. Much appreciation to Don for the contribution & for putting up with my ridiculousness.
The result of Metal influence & a pile of analog synthesis/Drums.
Being a fan of “Doom metal” & a synth freak can be rather conflicting at times. In an attempt to converge the two I figured some Amp (more importantly Cab) sound was in order. I tracked the dominant synth & bass lines with traditional mic’d guitar amp methods. 4×12 for the Prophet08 lead & a 4×10 for the Moog bass line. Drum parts tracked live (Gretsch Kit) , a few sequenced SEM & x0xB0x moments to keep things moving, & a fair amount of Tape/MF-104 delay to gel it together. The video is some chaos recorded from the night of drum tracking, the synth instrumentation, & a little time-lapse of the sun coming up after a late night mix.
The result of insomnia, and in-turn a great cure for those with insomnia.
- SEM-PRO sequenced via Oberkorn 3, thru Octatrack, & ValhallaVintageVerb + Cat.
- Drums = DRM1 mk3 sequenced via MPC3000, thru ValhallaVintageVerb.
- VOYAGER sequenced via Oberkorn 3, thru ValhallaVintageVerb.
Out of frustration I created a little Frame Rate Delay & Pro Tools Offset Calculator. It displays millisecond duration for frame, 1/4 frame, & sample duration. It also calculates pro tools 1/4 frame video offsets.
I was sick of figuring out the math every time I needed to time-align pro tools video & audio outputs. For those unaware all video displays/projectors introduce processing delay. Once you figure out the offset between the display & your audio outputs (that’s a much longer post) you can use this to figure out the pro tools 1/4 frame video offset.
