Okay, I’ve officially hit the most inputs I’ve ever used for tracking drums. If we include the AMS reverb being printed, it’s 25 inputs 😳. But damn do the new @interloperofficialgram drums sounds insanely good!

Since we are using all onboard preamps and EQ’s on the @interloperofficialgram drums with minimal outboard compression, the patchbay actually looks organized for once. (Also, yes the patchbay cables are organized in ROYGBIV rainbow colors)

Probably the most versatile compressors in our studios, the @empiricallabs Distressor EL8X with the “British Mod”

The venerable Neve 33609, of in this case, the 34628! Amazing on aggressive vocals, bass, piano, rhythm guitars, drum rooms, overheads, mix buss and so many other sources! This guy is in constant use here, most recently on drum overheads. The 100ms release seems to work just right on controlling snare peaks in the overs.

By far my favorite solid state LDC of all time; the AKG 414 EB with the “brass CK-12” capsule used in the C12. Made in the 1970s, these are true workhorse mics that really made the 414 a studio staple. This version of the 414 just can’t be beat. I use them on drums rooms, drum overheads, acoustic guitar, vocals, strings, lead guitar, piano, percussion, kick drums, you name it! We are fortunate enough to have 4 of these vintage beauties in our locker.

There’s just something so satisfying about a sea of knobs and channels. Since Studio 1 is in the process of a remodel, I’ve been spending more time in this desk in Studio 2 and haven fallen back in love with the @sslaudio AWS900 It’s so clean and punchy, and the EQ is soooo good. I’ve been really linking putting the drums through the @chandlerlimited preamps, and then running line in to the console to use the EQ!

Only about a week away from finish the new iso booth in Studio 1 and reopening the room for sessions! In the meantime we are working away at the new lounge and still working out of Studio 2. Can wait to start pushing some audio back through these 1073’s!
