Last year I had the pleasure to spend an afternoon inside a normal rehearsal room with some extra-talented musician friends (Thiago Castro on Drums, Lucas Barnery on Guitar, and Thiago Baumgarten on Bass) and that afternoon generated two awesome tunes, this one linked below and a fully live jam, named “Peanut Butter”
A few months ago I went to a rehearsal room with three long-time friends and amazing musicians from Salvador, Bahia - Brazil. They jammed for a few hours and two songs came out of that jam. This is one of those songs. The setup was pretty simple: Universal Audio Apollo x8p and another silver face Apollo. All tracks were recorded through API Legacy strips and Studer A800 tape, all committed to the recording. No samples were used. The guitar was recorded direct via a Kemper and the bass was also recorded direct, no amps in the room. Enjoy,
Welcome to 2023, The first release of the year comes out as a single of an EP I had the pleasure to play drums for, and engineer the recordings for the rest of the instrumentals during the pandemic. Tracks were mixed and mastered using UA's LUNA. Drums were tracked in a low-ceiling basement using a UA Apollo x8p with 8 channels of API Legacy strips via UNISON. Tracks were EQ'd and compressed "to tape". - RE20 on the kick - i5 on the snare - 421 for toms and floor toms - Ribbons for overheads Guitars were recorded through an amp and DI, the same for the bass tracks with the added Darkglass B7K (main bass tone) track. I hope you enjoy it!
