Fur Seal Recording: First Session
On Monday 23 June 2002 I was asked
to initiate a new recording facility installed in a former Carriage House
in downtown Minneapolis. The control room and Studio are integrated
(no glass or walls) the second floor takes up only half of the second story
(over the control area) leaving full height for the Studio Area.
The three piece Jazz Trio consisted
of piano, acoustic bass and drums. The mic list is detailed below.
Seven channels were recorded straight to ProTools @ 88.2 kHz/24-bit, mixed
to stereo (some live, some during playback from PT) into a Fostex
DV-40 four channel DVD recorder (the other two channels captured an Audio
Technica stereo shotgun mic from the second floor "balcony" using a Great
River MP-2x transformerless preamp.)
Monitoring during recording was via
the Grace 901 DA converter and
Reference Headphone Amp using Sennheiser
HD600 headphones (sweet). ProAc
Studio 100 Monitors were used during Playback.
No signal processing was used during
recording or mixing. The stereo files were digitally transferred
to a modified Alesis Masterlink @ 88.2kHz/24-bit, then normalized, rendered
to 44.1kHz/16-bit and then burned to RedBook CD.
Two versions of the same tune are
provided, one "Flat-No Compression" and the other has been processed using
the TC DYnamizer plug-in for Soundscape. Cool Edit Pro Version 2
was used to convert to mp3.
These files are now located on a
fast server so stream or download (but do not distribute).
