My friend came for a visit a few months back, he’s a singer/songwriter type - very talented I think - so we set aside a day to record this new song of his. We recorded all the tracks onto a Zoom R24 and then I dumped the resulting .wav tracks into Cubase 6.5.3 for editing/mixing.
AT2020 to record the vocals
Behringer C2’s to record the acoustic gtr (an old Epiphone of mine)
The clean electric and electric lead were recorded with an SM57 mic on a Marshall JCM900 DR head (4100) with a 1960 4x12. On the clean we used a little Mooer ShimVerb pedal for effect. The lead was just straight tone from the amp. The gtr is an Ibanez Artcore semi-hollowbody.
In Cubase I did the usual stuff, plus there is some Cubase reverb on the vocals. The vocals and a couple other tracks also have some Slate VCC (RCTube) on them. What little compression there is on the tracks (vocals) uses a Plug&Mix Retro Compressor. When I “mastered” it (ha ha) I just used the stock VST Dynamics plug. There’s not much else effect-wise.
