Don Vito White Noise Session

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Don Vito came over to the studio to do a session for White Noise Session. Energetic, frenetic, a mashup of all sort of styles with a guitar and bass who don’t always behave as they are expected to do. A blog about the mics, mix and master.

The mic setup:

The studio’s drumkit was used – kick, snare and floor.
Drumsmics: BPM CR76 center overhead, neumann km184’s as closer OH over the stacked crash cymbals, sm57 for snare, sennheiser e602 in the kick, subkick in front of the kick, sennheiser md441 for floortom.
For guitar a single sennheiser md421 was used, for bassguitar a sennheiser md441 in front of the lower 15″ speaker and a shure beta52 for the top speakers. This was done for convenience, a flatter mic was needed so bassplayer Susi could get very close to the cabinet to create feedback.
2 sennheiser md21’s were used for room mics.

Don Vito Mix:

In general, I used a little panning on guitar and bass. Guitar to the left, bass to the right. The bass was panned center below 200 hx and to the right above 200hz.

For bass, a multiband compressor was used to get a more even balance below 200hz. An eq boost from 500hz to 1 khz brought out the character of the bass. An instance of fluid ( analoge chorus) added a little ambience around the bass.
Panning from center to slightly to the right was used in different sections in the session to enhance the used panning for guitar.

Guitar:

Panning and stereo width played a huge part for guitar. For width a waves supertap plugin was used. Left chennel to 0 ms, right channel to 23 ms, direct signal muted. This plugin was activated or muted depending on the intensity of the music. You’ll definately hear it when used 😉 General eq was used to bring out the body of the guitar and added some high end.

Drums:

Pretty straightforward, compression on the bus, a bit of eq on the overheads and plugins whatsoever on both the bassdrum mics. Happens not too often.

Mastering:

The entire session is run through tape for glue, compression and that “tape” sound simply because it fits the band. Some more mastercompression was used for fatness and an eq to boost the mids a bit. A limiter was used to increase overall loudness a little bit, there was plenty of headroom left to do it.
