Helped out my friend Ben track Mad Blackbirds for his MP461 project. i liked how it turned out. Used simple concepts in miking and summed things up. Had less than 10 tracks going to tape. Pretty simple and effective i would say.
Glyn Johns miking on drums (K, SN and OHs)
3 bass signals summed (2 amps and 1 DI)
2 mics on a guitar summed
Highlights: R121’s on OH
Jensen DIs through a vintage Neve1073 pre for bass.
Wunder CM7 on the bass amp through a UA610 pre.
OH height on the GJ OH’s were around 25-30cms. it felt tighter that way. started out around 40 but was too roomy.
Not to mention the beautiful SSL 4k G series console we were using. Grateful for all of these.
anyway. More on this project later.
