Thank you so much for all of the positive feedback on Tuesday’s Rock Production video! Some of you have asked me to do more Rock production and recording tutorials. Well… ask and you shall receive! 😉
We’re back with our Recording Connection apprentice Alex, and this time we’re digging deeper into recording electric guitars.
Heavy guitars are extremely full sounds, covering almost the entire frequency spectrum. So the frequency response of the microphones your choose and how you place them can greatly help to shape your sound.
In this tutorial, we’re shooting out three different kinds of microphones: Ribbons, Condensers and a good old SM57, as well as combinations of all of them to see how they affect our guitar tone.
You’ll learn a special miking technique you can use to add fullness to your guitars and I’m also sharing one of my favorite amp and cabinet combos I’ve recently discovered ! I hope you enjoy it.
Have a marvellous time recording and mixing,
