Recording a Band Song Track in a Day !
Here at the coolest recording studio in south London we work at all kindsa speeds – mainly the speed the artist we’re working with wants to work at.
Some folks need their stuff in a hurry – others want to take their sweet time.
We just had the supercool post punk band Happy Science in to record their upcoming single – & boy what a banger it is. They needed the whole band recorded in a day – drums / bass / guitars (plus overdubs) & vocals – & all to our regular uber high standards! So as per – we set up the drums the day before to save the band some time – & within an hour had Fin test recorded & sounding his phenomenal self!
Recording Bass Guitar
Recording Big Electric Guitars
Next up we setup the guitar through a beautiful Ibanez tube amp using a 545 mic & a U87 – this was in an isolation booth ( as was the bass) so there was no bleed into the drums – the band monitored through headphones. After recording 7 takes of the backing track we set up twin guitar amps in the live room with both close & distance mics on each cab & re recorded all the guitars, also adding some riffs & a beautiful chorus uplift. It sounds Massive!!
All that done in a day! We work fast when the remit commands it! the band were so blown away by the quality of the recording they said it hardly needed mixing it sounded so good!!
We do the best audio – both recording & production – at the best prices in London Town!
