  • 7 Pieces of Equipment I Use Every Day

    22:54

    ➡️ BAE Audio 1028:
    ➡️ Pultec EQP-500A:
    ➡️ DBX 120A:
    ➡️ Yamaha RevStar:
    ➡️ Nobels ODR-1 Natural Overdrive:
    ➡️ Carl Martin Echotone:
    ➡️ Yamaha LL16:
    ➡️ Shure SM57:

    1. BAE Audio 1028
    This is my workhorse. I have a lot of BAE stuff, but if I am recording individual elements, like lead vocals or acoustic guitars, this is the one that gets use on pretty much everything. For me, having one really good, really high quality mic preamp with EQs is essential.

    2. Pultec EQP-500A
    This is a secret weapon for me. This is a huge part of my bass sound when I am mixing in a hybrid fashion on the console. I use a 100Hz boost and a 3k Hz boost, and then it is inserted on my bass channel on the console. While we could boost the low end on the console, there is something absolutely fantastic about how the low end blooms on the 500A.

    3. DBX 120A
    What I love to do when mixing rock and roll and live drums if to have the low end come in underneath the bass guitar. This allows me to do that and really helps out my mix because I can have those low lows I want coming right in underneath. If you are mixing hybrid, I highly recommend getting one of these, if you are not, there are a number of companies that make fantastic plugin versions of this as well.

    4. Yamaha RevStar
    This is one of my favorite guitars. This guitar is so well made, well set up, and so versatile. I use it on nearly every single recording we do. And, it is affordable as well! I love equipment that is amazing, and also affordable, and this guitar is one of those wonderful pieces!

    5. Nobels ODR-1 Natural Overdrive
    This is my favorite overdrive pedal. It is great for leads, and it really responsive just like a tube amp. I usually find that I don’t need too much drive, but it still makes it mid-rangey and honky and cuts through. It is truly an amazing pedal and I use it all the time.

    6. Carl Martin Echotone
    This is my favorite delay pedal. I find that I use a lot of echo, really lightly, all the time, and this is the pedal I use to do it. I have had this pedal for almost 11 years, I have taken it everywhere, used it all the time, and have never had it break down or had any issues with it.

    7. Yamaha LL16
    I love many acoustic guitars, but there is something wonderful about the LL16. It is beautifull built, it can be pop when I want it to be pop, it can be rock when I want it to be rock, and so much more. And since I changed to Ernie Ball strings, it has really come to life even more. This guitar is definitely one I cannot go without, and it has been on almost every recording I have done since I got it!

    BONUS: Shure SM57
    If someone comes to me and asks about inexpensive mics and how to get started, the SM57 is the one I recommend. I remember talking to almost every major producer and engineer that I have worked with, and they all come back to this as well. There are plenty of inexpensive mics out there, but out ears are so tuned to this mic and the way it sounds, that this is the one we all turn to. It is the sound of guitars, snare drums, pretty much anything you want to use it for, as well as the sound of Paul Rogers’s voice, and he is one of the greatest rock singers of all time. This is a mic that is super affordable, sounds great, and that is why it is one we use all the time.

  • How to record an electric guitar amp - Part 1

    2:52

    Legendary Recording engineer Bob Clearmountain shows how to mic and record an electric guitar amp using one mic and an Apogee Duet audio interface. This includes mic selection, mic placement technique and tips on proper gain staging.

    See photos and hear the finished track:
    Learn more about Apogee Duet:


    Today we’re talking about micing electric guitar amps. We’re going to start with the single mic technique when we get into multiple mics later.

    Starting with this Vox AC 30, which is one of my favorite guitar amps, you can use any amp you want, of course it doesn’t matter, your choice.

    My chosen microphone is the Shure SM57, which is one of the most common microphones in the world, it’s very inexpensive, they only cost about $90. It’s usually the go to mic that gets used for guitar amps more than any other mic. There’s a lot of other choices, but this is kind of the most common. For some reason it compliments most guitar amps quite well. There’s not that much to it, basically you want to point the mic at the amp (chuckles) and not away from the amp.

    There’s two speakers in this, two twelve inch speakers, I’m using the off axis technique a little bit here, you can put it directly, it doesn’t make that much difference, I mean there’s a little difference in tone and you would have to play with it to see what actually you like better. I usually prefer the off axis, I’m not really sure why. If you want an edgier tone, you’d want to move it away from the speaker a little bit, you don’t get as much proximity effect. If you put it real close, you get sort of a warmer sound, scooping the upper mid range out a little bit.

    Lot’s of different mics you could pic depending on what you have in your microphone arsenal, you might want to go through a few different types. The condensers are going to give you a more of a Hi-Fi sound. If you want a warmer sound, a more round and not as edgy sound, you might want to use a ribbon, like a Royer 121, or something like that.

    We used to change the sound when we used to record analog, and some of you maybe still do record analog, in which case it is quite important, if you really push tape hard you get a bit of a compression effect and that can actually be advantageous for a guitar sound.

    Nowadays most people are recording digital and it doesn’t really matter, no matter what gain setting, as long as you set your preamp so it’s not distorting, and you’re not in the red, it’s going to sound pretty much the same. I’ll ask a guitar player to play the loudest thing he can possibly play and then set it so it’s just a few dB under full scale, under going into the red, that’ll work fine, and if it’s a bit lower than that that’s not really going to make a whole lot of difference.

    2:52

    In this second part of our series, recording engineer Bob Clearmountain shows how to mic and record an electric guitar amp using two mics and an Apogee Duet audio interface. This video includes tips on microphone selection and a few different mic placement techniques.


    See photos and hear the finished track:
    Learn more about Apogee Duet:


    Alright now we’re going to talk about using more than one mic. I mentioned using different types of mics.

    What’s been common lately, I’ve noticed, is using ribbons on guitar amps. The Royer ribbon, the 121, is a very common mic to use on guitar amps. I generally like to couple it with an SM57 so you can get that bright, edgy, more aggressive sound out of the 57 and the ribbon will give you more rounded warmer sound and sometimes that way once you get to the mix you can use either one depending on the guitar’s contribution to the big picture of the mix. Or sometimes a combination can work you can get somewhere in between and it gives you quite a wide range of different sounds to use later on.

    As far as placing the mic, it’s really to taste. Generally I just have this ribbon pointing directly at the speaker, the 57 I have slightly off axis to the other speaker. You can put them on the same speaker if you want, it doesn’t make a lot of difference. What does make a difference is the proximity because you get that off of both mics. You get a warmer sound the closer ou get it to the speaker, you get a harder sound the farther away you get it. So if you want a warmer sound because you are using a ribbon, you probably want it pretty close, but not so close that it’s touching the grill cloth because then you might get a little buzzing noise or something just from that vibration. Other than that there really isn’t much to it.

    There’s another way I’ve done it in the past where if you have an amp like this that has an open back you can put one mic in the back and that’s a completely different sound. If you’re going to do that you’re usually going to want to flip the phase on one of them because the one in the front is getting a positive push where the one at the back at the same time is getting a negative so you’re going to want to flip the phase on one of them. But that’s a valid thing too, it’s just you got to, it’s something to play with it’s one of the fun things about recording guitars is trying different things and seeing what you can come up with, and hopefully you have time and enough microphones to do it. This is a place to start though, this is a really sort of a standard way that a lot of recording engineers use.

    Yeah cool, that was good. You passed the audition.

    ➡️➡️Eventide H9000 Next Generation Harmonizer:

    Today we will be testing out the amazing Eventide Omnipressor plugin! This was my first time using this plugin, but I do know and love the hardware. The hardware is pretty legendary. If you go to a studio and you see an Omnipressor, you get excited!

    Below is the description Eventide has on their site about this great plugin:

    “Introduced in the early 1970s, the Omnipressor® was the first dynamics effects processor of any kind. Originally invented by Eventide’s founder, Richard Factor (and later redesigned for production by John Paul), the Omnipresssor made a host of effects possible. It featured variable control of all aspects of dynamic modification. It also introduced the notion of the ‘side chain’ and foretold techniques that today we take for granted like ‘look ahead’ processing.

    As you can see, the Omnipressor is a legendary piece of equipment, and after trying out the plugin, I can tell you the plugin is amazing as well! The sound you can create with this plugin is incredible. I used it on a very boring recording of myself drumming, and it made my drumming sound so much better and more exciting.

    A lot of you ask me what I would use to randomize, and this is a great plugin to use for that. This plugin will take your programmed drum sounds and roughen them up and turn them into something that sounds truly great. This plugin does something that no other plugin does!

    Watch the full video below to see the plugin in action! If you want a chance to win your very own Omnipressor plugin, make sure you scroll up to enter!

He gives an overview of how the album ‘Grace’ was made, from seeing Jeff play live, to pre-production, recording, and mixing. He describes the recording process and equipment used, then explains the console layout and demonstrates microphone signal differences using phase inversion. He then chooses specific reverb plug-ins to emulate the sound of the outboard units on the record. Using console EQ and compression alongside the plug-ins, he builds a hybrid remix to rival the original!

  • Songs that Changed Music: Phil Collins - In the Air Tonight

    16:43

    ➡️➡️Learn more about In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins here:

    This week was the 40th anniversary of the release of Phil Collins' In the Air Tonight, the legendary debut single off his first solo album Face Value!

    Phil Collins’ 1981 debut single, “In the Air Tonight,” is one of the most influential pop songs of all time. The song has many striking features. It starts with drums from a Roland CR-78 drum machine and an electric guitar, after which a pulsating synth pad and a Fender Rhodes piano come in. Together they set a strong, melancholy mood, over which Collins angrily and sadly ponders the separation from his wife. The CR-78 beat is mixed in the background, providing punctuation rather than a groove, making the song sound like a low-key ballad.

    The ballad feel lasts for a full 3 minutes and 40 seconds, with the only moments of true drama provided by Collins singing “I remember,” masterfully dramatized by a Roland VP-300 vocoder, delays and a panned cymbal roll. At this point most people would expect a saxophone or synth solo, and for the song to end. If that had been the case, the song would most likely have sunk without a trace.

    By contrast, at 3:41 one of the most dramatic, legendary and talked-about moments in the history of music arrives: the entrance of Collins’ gated drums, in particular THAT astonishing 10-note tom-fill, leading to a proper backbeat and the introduction of John Giblin’s bass.

    The gated reverb drum sound was first heard a year earlier on Peter Gabriel’s song “Intruder,” on which Collins also played drums. Engineer Hugh Padgham heard Collins play drums through the heavily compressed reverse talkback mic on a new SSL desk, which also had noise-gates on every channel, and was awe-struck by the unexpected new sound. Gabriel and Collins also loved it, and the SSL was duly rewired so the talkback mic could be recorded easily.

    For “In The Air Tonight” a year later, Collins and Padgham recreated the sound with heavily compressed and gated ambient mics.

    The resulting thunderous gated drum sound has since been imitated countless times, and is now so deeply engrained in popular culture that it’s easy to forget how revolutionary it was at the time.

Imperial Drag was together from 1994-1997 and saw overwhelming overseas success, particularly in England and Japan. At the same time, Roger co-founded The Moog Cookbook, which was started solely as a means to have a forum to express his and his partner’s love for the bygone era of vintage synthesizers and exotic keyboards.

  • How to record an electric guitar amp - Part 3

    2:32

    In the third part of our series on recording electric guitar, engineer Bob Clearmountain shows the mic technique he used in the 80's to record artists such as Bryan Adams, Simple Minds and The Pretenders. Using two SM57's, Bob points one mic towards the speaker in the amp cabinet and the other facing the opposite direction in order to capture a very short delay, resulting in a unique comb filtering effect.

    See photos and hear the finished track:
    Learn more about Apogee Duet:



    Now I want to talk about a little trick I used to do back in the 80’s; and just because it was in the 80’s doesn’t meant that it’s bad, we actually did some pretty cool things back then.

    This is using two microphones. The first microphone is an SM57, just like the way I was talking about before, slightly off-axis in front of the amp.

    Now the second microphone is also an SM57, could be any other mic that you want, but I’ve always done it with an SM57. Now it’s pointing the opposite direction of the amp and there is this hard surface, we use these little uh, they’re actually speaker stands, to create almost like a little chamber here, and what happens is the sound bounces off of this hard surface over there, that could be a gobo, could be a door, it could be a wall, it could be any kind of a hard surface and the sound bounces off it and into that microphone and it’s not a reverb or a delay or an ambiance of any kind, it really creates a comb filter effect, and it works mainly on distorted guitars it wouldn’t sound very good on a clean guitar, probably, I’ve never used it on a clean guitar but on a heavy distorted we used to use for Bryan Adams quite a bit back in the 80’s and I think Simple Minds and The Pretenders some of the things that I did back then you can get this gnarlier kind of a sound it’s like a very short delay like a few milliseconds but it’s not only a short delay, it adds the character of whatever the wood is that you’re using to bounce off the microphone.

    You can alter the sound quite a bit by moving this microphone back and forth, it’s there’s no set distance you can try different sizes I mean this is about what we used to use was a little longer than this actually about eight or ten feet, something like that, and it’s amazing the variety of sounds that you can get just by doing this and you can get a more of an aggressive sound than just one microphone or even two microphones in the front it’s quite interesting it’s something you may want to try.
