#coles4038 in Mid Side config on piano gives a very nice capture of low end physicality with a smooth presence and top end. Using @baeaudio #bae1084 preamps for this one. Sounding clear and open.

Excellent blend of two ribbon mics on acoustic guitar. @royerlabs #royerr122 for the low end and @beyerdynamic #beyerm160 for the top end. Both going through @coil_audio preamps.

If anyone is curious what the best preamp ever made is you’re looking at 6 of them right here from @coil_audio I’ve been recording a bunch of things with them and they are the sort of thing that makes you want to sell all your other gear in order to get more of. Masterpieces.

Master chain for the new @chipperskipper , no plugins in use except a tiny bit of width enhancement and +1db of true peak limiting to control inter-sample peaks. Sounds sooo good. Great mix by @michaelmasonmusic

@royerlabs #royerr122 on bass drum. This has the most low end of anything you have ever heard and it rejects the rest of the kit pretty much perfectly.

We’ve been putting the new studio through a little test recording to work out the bugs and get a feel for things in the space. The room is sounding better than ever. I’m also very pleased to announce that our house kit is the stunning Eric Valentine @nerdentine recording kit made by @sugarpercussion This thing sounds truly amazing!

I’ve often struggled with finding a Nonlin reverb sound that I actually like and can use in a mix. I’ve never been fully satisfied by the available options including in some of the supposed classics. They usually sound thin and lame and are difficult to sculpt into a mix. However, this thing is absolutely perfect. Thank you @tcelectronic for making this plugin. Now I can finally get into Nonlin sounds without hesitation.

Final weeks before we are done. It’s been over three years since the old space was closed and it’s been quite a journey since then. I’ve learned so much and made great friends along the way. Thank you universe for seeing this creation manifest.

That number of takes is not even all of them. Some songs really require work and this is not because of any lack of talent. This is just what it takes to do some things. Don’t think this sh*t is gonna be easy. Put in the work to make something great.

This is a master EQ for a song on an album I just finished mastering. Don’t settle for halfway with your processing. Do everything possible to enhance the source. No excuses. No arbitrary limits. Just get the result you need using whatever steps you need to get there.

Compress the vocal. Three plugs each doing their thing in series. Sometimes you need the squeeze. And this is for some super tender folk music by the way, you won’t hear this pumping at all, just intimate, forward, and clear.
