Today has so far been spent editing some recorded poems (64 to be done in total) for Pearson education. Another great voice artist, and really good poems, but some really depressing ones!

Tonight will be producing songs for Matthew Davies, a client here at the Holloway. I look forward to doing some music after so much voice editing.

Will Dave has been laborously working on our live room construction, I’ve spent a little time measuring up for a false ceiling over half of the control room, which will be filled with rockwool to further improve the acoustics in there, although it might make it feel a little smaller…

Record and refurbish

Dave’s out giving our live room a new lick of paint – much needed! We’re also building a mini stage and putting in a false ceiling above, to minimise sound leakage and improve the acoustics in there. Can’t wait to get it all finished.

Today I finished the mixing of “Romeo and Juliet” and “Warmness on your soul” for Ryan and Helen’s wedding, now I just gotta burn 50 copies! The SM7b (through GAP73) was definitely the right mic for Steve’s singing – his voice sounded thick, yet clear and present; loverrly. The distorted electric guitar was recorded with an Audix i5 and an Avantone CR14 ribbon mic – I was so impressed by the fatness of the CR14 that I didn’t even mix in the i5 – it seems to really tame the harshness of guitar distortion.
