I spent today recording drums and bass with the Callum Chenowyth Band for an upcoming album. The band had recorded guide tracks in their home studio and brought stereo music mixes to import into Pro tools. 

Tom, the drummer set up his Pearl Reference kit. It sounded great in the room right away so we started to set up microphones. The bass drum had an interesting configuration of ports - there were 3 small holes rather than one large one. Usually I like to get the mic inside the drum quite close to the beater but with the smaller hole it wasn't possible. I angled a Sennheiser 421 up inside pointing to where the beater makes contact with the batter head. It actually sounded great right off the bat running through the Neve 8024 channel strip. I boosted a little at 50Hz and cut a little at 300Hz et voila! 

We ended up with SE RN17's as overheads in a spaced pair, SM57 snare top and Beyerdynamic M201 on snare bottom. AGK 414's went on the toms with the Audix D6 on the outside of the kick.

For the room microphones I've been using a mid-side stereo pair. Today we used the Peluso 2247 in figure 8 mode for the sides and a Shure KSM141 as the 'mid'. The advantage of this technique is that there are no phase issues between the mics and you can vary the width of the stereo image by blending more or less of the side mic into the mix.

One of the pieces of gear that lives in the rack at Everland is the Anthony Demaria Labs ADL1500. It's a stereo tube compressor/limiter that is very similar in design to the revered LA-2A

The ADL1500 works beautifully when recording vocals or bass. The compression is very transparent and musical.

We have Kim Killspeed in the studio this evening recording some guitar parts for their next EP. Kim Killspeed are a local Sydney band who recorded and mixed their first EP here at Everland too. Andy, from the band is a bit of a guitar obsessive and has some nice Tele's that we often use. He also collects amps and has an original Fender Champ from the 50's. These amps are super-basic with just a volume control and a tone knob. They record really well, and they are only 5W! 

When recording guitars I'll often use a two microphone setup, pairing a dynamic (such as a Shure SM57) with a condenser (like an AKG C414). You have to be careful to get the phase relationship between the two microphones correct but a blend can often give a fuller sound than recording with one microphone on it's own.

A beautiful 1980 Ludwig kit I've been recording over the last couple of days with a project called Five Eyes. They play post rock a la Neu! or Hallogallo. They didn't call them power toms for nothing... look at the size of that rack tom!
