Hey folks, been awhile since I last visited. Very busy over the last few months but have a short breather and thought I’d put up a post to share some stuff I’ve been doing lately.
For the last few months I’ve been doing both FOH and recording for a series of jazz shows. Really cool shows, great players in a small church, built around 1918 or so, every Sunday evening. The band is generally a quartet, key’s, bass, drums and sax/flute.
We’ve done 7 shows so far, the last one is this weekend. It’s been a blast!
Here’s a few tracks from some recent shows. Hope you enjoy them and let me know what you think.
BTW…the system I’m using for this is…
Presonus Studiolive 24.4.2 mixer feeding an ADK 7600 laptop via firewire (running Cubase) with the direct outs feeding an Alesis HD24xr as a backup recorder.
Yamaha C4 grand and a few elec keyboards, a pair of AT4033’s on the grand, DI on the elec key’s.
Acoustic bass (usually) with a DI into the board and a Shure SM81 about 1ft away, pointed towards the f hole
Drums get an Audix D6 on kick, i5 on snare top/bottom, Sennheiser e914 on hat and a pair of Octava MC012’s as overheads
Sax has an AT clip on mic but is mostly just an SM57 in front.
Edited/mixed etc ITB with Cubase 4.5 (I have 6 but haven’t had a chance to install it yet).
Hope you like them…
