I will record a rock n roll band. My goal is to get the classic sound of the 1950s-1960s with a polished feel. I mapped the following recording setup, but i have a fear that it will sound to POPish, plz critize my buildup and give some recording tips if possible. Thx
Band: male vocals (very clean voice with a mid twenty boy softer sound) drumkit (full acoustic, i do not know which jet) electric guitar (i do not know which amp jet, 4x12 Marshall 16 Ohm box in seperat amp chamber) upright bass (ampeg svt-III bassamp, 4x10 + 1x15 trace eliot box) digital piano :/
Channels: I planned to record everything over a ssl duality se console but the voice. The voice I planed to record via a avalon channel surpassing the ssl sound to create contrast to the backing track. As i want use somewhat no eq in postproduction to give it that olds cool vibe i want to use ssl and avalon eq and compressors as much as possible.
Microphones: Vocals: Neumann U87 or C4000B (i think i try them both and see what works best) Drumkit: Kick: AKG D112 Sanre: Shure SM57 top AKG C4000B or AKG C391B Fig8 Body Overheads: 2x AKG C451 B or 2 Neumann U87 ORTF or AB not sure jet Hi-Hat: Beyerdynamics CK703 Toms: 3x SM 58? E-Guittar: AKG c414 + AKG C391 B for MS Upright bass: Shute Beata 91 + Sennheiser MKH-40 for Pickups + Amped D112? + Di i am so not sure here Keybord direct into SLL + heavy convolution reverb in postproduction
Thank you for your help!
