    I'm totally digging vocalists at the moment too.
    Did a 6 track EP for a band who used to have a screamer, but recently changed to a singer..

    Link here

    Good work dude.. I like the arrangement of the tracks!

    He is a great vocalist, his only problem is that I had to be constantly telling him to sing lower :D, all his melodies tended to be always at very high registers. Contrast was needed.



    Thanks. It feels great to work with real singers :D
    This band has 2 vocalists, the main one that screams and does backing vocals and the other one that is the guitar player who does most of the singing parts.

    Obrigado :wave:

    The pre-production and production had an essential influence on the final result. We worked a lot on all songs.
    I can say that most of the original songs are almost unrecognizable against the final versions.

    I don't have much pics of it but I could almost write a book about this album :D
    Let me know what you would like to know


    Thanks :)
    As I said above there was a lot of work involved to get the songs to the point of the final version, arrangements included.
    Nice songs you have there too.



    Thanks :)

    Finally have time so let's start:

    Recording:
    Witch drum kit was used? Mics and preamp?
    Bass is a di and amp combinaison i suppose so what bass/amp/cab/mic/pre/comp was used?

    Mixing:
    Any para drum compresion (fatso or anything else)?
    How much hardware involted?
    Space wise did you used more verb or more delay?
    Any 2bus compression involted?

    And a tricky one: do you think you can achieve same mix totally itb? :)

    I used my Sonor Designer kit with 2 snares (Tama Bell Brass and Ayotte Keplinger)
    If I remember correctly the mics were: U87s, KM184s, 421s, 57s, 414s R121s, D6, Subkick
    Preamps: API, Neve, Chandler, Crane Song, Tube Tech, Manley
    Bass is a DI + (shame on me because didn't had time to reamp, long story...) IK SVX + Sansamp plugin + CLA Bass. Can't remember which comp I used on bass, possibly Distressor and 1176.

    A lot of individual Drum compression, parallel compression, bus compression, Room compression
    Bus was Neve 33609, Parallel was ADR Compex.
    A lot of hardware was involved. Possibly +30 rack processors, It was a nightmare :lol:
    Used a lot of delays and reverbs. PCM42s, Roland SDE3000, Bricasti, TC6000, PCM70, Sony DRE777, SPX2000 + plugins
    I had 2 Bus compression, if not mistaken SSL 384.
    Due to time constraint I also had to mix it to "Mastering processing" so there was EQ and even more compression on the 2 Bus.


    I don't think that I could get the same ITB but wouldn't be night and day. :p
    I also used a lot of plugins.

    Here is the video of the 1st single.
    (Don't forget to see it in HD) :cool:



    On this song, from about minute 3:39 till the end is what I call a very good Bridge to Chorus to Ending evolution, production wise.
