Hi Friends, I hope you’re marvellously well! A few days ago, I shared a cool excerpt on recording Snare Drums from our latest course “Producing & Mixing at Echo Bar Studios“ with you. If you’ve missed this tutorial, you can watch it here.
Today’s video is all about recording electric guitars.
Engineers Erik Reichers (Snoop Dogg, Bono) and Bob Horn (Usher, Nelly, Timbaland) showcase several recording techniques to shape the tone of your guitars and achieve a powerful sound.
Topics covered in this tutorial:
- A special recording setup that will allow the full band to play in the room together, while maintaining isolation and avoiding bleed in your recordings.
- Microphone choices and microphone placement to shape the tone of your guitar recordings to your needs.
- Maintaining a full-bodied guitar sound by keeping the microphones in phase.
- Differences in sound of various cabinet designs.
Thanks Bob and Erik for sharing your knowledge with us!
