First band recordings from home studio

  1. Finally got the band I am in (Chilis cover band) recorded, carted all my gear into the rehearsal space (NOT fun, entire computer, DAW rack, mics and stands, leads, mixer, ouch.
    Anyway, tell me what you think (The vocals are due to be retracked with a condenser mic, the dynamic.. in a live recording environment isn't too good)
    I am amazed at the seperation of SM57s after doing this, Soloing the one track I used a 57 on you can't hear anything but a bit of snare leaking in!!

    I didn't have enough mics to close mike the snare and toms, tis why the drums sound a bit "distant"

    Our drummer (Brother) is 15.. FIFTEEN!!! - dedicated to his drums! - We lock in so well, even if I play a riff I haven't done before he can follow it :S
