Great time doing live sound for Tim O'Brien with Lunasa earlier this year. Also engineered a second session for Peter Rowan. Attached are some pix from the adventures!

Cool, thx for the feedback Rob and Zach. Have since updated the male vox to be more similar to the female vox in vibe. This song is supposed to be used in a documentary so the format may be more geared towards background music bed role but yes, if given the reigns I would love to add some additional textures and sounds to at least some of the songs. This is the first one in the batch so doing the old "give them exactly what they ask for on the first one to build trust" thing. From there, hope to add some more flavor on the remaining songs. 

Cheers,
David

Nice vid Dana, you recording with Bob up in Whitehorse again? The last CD of yours sounded awesome, I find that it's in regular rotation most of the time. Can't wait to hear the new one! Much love from Hawaii

Recording  - 
 
Hi all, got a question for ya. Have been recording a lot of VO lately  and am getting a lot of lip/mouth smacks throughout the takes.

Any suggestions on minimizing this at the front end? Giving the voice talent more water? Possibly a different mic? I usually just draw the smacks out of the waveform in PT if it can't be cut out completely but thinking there might be a way to reduce this at the time of tracking.

Thanks in advance,
David

Unless your "talent" is working for free stop the problem at the source. The producer should make the voice talent aware of the problem, fix it or find another gig because there probably isn't any "talent" there. Harsh, yes but garbage in garbage out so just don't put up with it.
