Our album is dropping this Thursday!! Start off your winter break right by listening to King St.

Love the @sslaudio E Channel by @wavesaudio on acoustic guitars. Here we have two acoustic guitars with just slightly different settings for a wide left and right.

Some filter, EQ, compression, and console character! Set too similar settings and you'll lose your width.

King St. Band debut album out this Thursday, Dec 20th!

Loving the McDSP 4020 Retro EQ and 4030 Retro Compressor on this guitar room mic! King St. Band

It's so nice to have 4 bands, HPF, LPF, and an I/O section for EQ. Very #versatile and #analog sounding!

The 4030 is an amazing vintage sounding #compressor. We have the threshold cranked but the mix knob really low for some subtle agression!

Mixing King St.

Having a blast mixing King St. Band debut album!

Sending the mix buss to the console, the dbx Pro Project 1 (unlinked), the Alesis ADAT Type II, back to the console (with some light compression) and into PreSonus Audio Electronics Studio One.

Wrapping up a mix with Bay Music! Super #funky. Check out our latest stories a preview!

Used the Waves Audio Abbey Road Plates to add some depth and character to the mix.

Slate Companies VTM on everything and VRM on snare verb (CS Lift and FG-Bomber) for some analog characteristic

McDSP Futbox on bass for fuzzy saturation and EC-300 wide delay on keys/organ/guitar

Another great session with King St. Band today! Did some overdriven and acoustic guitars, thunderous bass, smooth vocals, phat drums and cajon. They are putting a lot of hard work into their first album. Coming Dec 20!

Taking the time to remember our first location on Edwards Ferry. As most of you know I used to share the space with my mom's business, Mane Imp. Hair Studio.

We had over two full years together before our location change. Lovin Groove 2.0 at the new location! Busier than ever. Thanks for all the love and support momma!

Big thanks to Melodee Music for always providing the best essentials and great service!

Spent some time nosing around Jazzmasters, hollowbodies, basses, and of course perusing the accessories.

For now I checked out with a pair of Vicfirth Hickory American Classic 5B sticks and a Daddario NS Pro capo.

Shoutout to Gary, Chris, and Rick for helping out with all the different models...and putting up with all my Dinossur Jr riffs!

Finishing up some more mixes today!

Using a few favorite mixing tools on the busses. The Waves Audio Scheps Omni Channel goes on a lot of our busses including guitars, bass, and drums. Each of it's modules are fantastic.

The Waves F6 goes on nearly every project we mix. The sidechain function is unreal! Floating bands are the best bands.

The McDSP Channel G Console set to API settings on pianos. A really great and universal plugin that does beyond most channel strips.

Using Presonus Studio One :)

Awesome string session last week!

We recorded with a vintage AKG D1000E (used by Jim Morrison/The Doors) as a close mic through our dbx Pro 161 compressor and PreSonus Audio Electronics console. Then some saturation with a combination of Slate Companies VTM and FG73 on the cello and Futzbox, AC101, & AC202 by McDSP on violin.

While we used an AKG P220 condenser as a room mic. It hits the PreSonus TubePre before the console for some drive and then the McDSP F202 for a really nice blend!

Saturation Saturday! Busy as all heck here at Groove. 3 vocal sessions so far this week and a string session today (all with the Grander Music LLC project).

Spending some time between recording to mix some saturation into the vocals. Using the PreSonus Audio Electronics TubePre and Warm Audio WA76. Click off the ratio on the '76 and you've got yourself some great harmonic distortion.

The McDSP product line is so incredible and user friendly. We are constantly adding the 6050 (SST '77, EQ '76 and S 671 shown) and AC202 to our tracks.

Mixing some rock guitars today and to do so we need the best tools around. Thank you McDSP for proving those tools for 20 years. Congratulations and happy anniversary!!!

Drum Tutorial: Practicing Subdivisions

Hey folks!
In this video Warren Hayford demonstrates a quick and easy subdivision exercise. He shows how to take a beat and split it into 2's, 3's, 4's, all the way up to 8's and back down. He begins each subdivided grouping with an accent. The goal of the exercise is to transition between each subdivision as smoothly as possible.

King St. Solo!

Tracking the guitar solo for "Sweeter Sounds" by @kingstband. Well done, Rheese! Gotta love a Gibson Les Paul for that sweet and smooth sound.

Signal chain: PreSonus Commercial TubePre -- dbx Pro 161 -- 24.4.2 Console -- S-Gear by Scuffham Amps (Roy's Dream setting, with adjustments) = fat guitar solo tone.
