As of yesterday morning, I’m recording Valiance guitars. Hoping to do at least 6 tracks this long weekend.
The rig is the EV RE320 close, aimed right at the top frets from slightly above, maybe six inches off. The Rode NT-1 is above and to my right in kind of a shoulder position; my goal with the setup is to match the sound I hear myself when I play, and it’s doing a pretty good job.
Wish me luck. It’s pretty realistic to estimate two weekends for guitars and two for vocals, though I don’t know that I’ll get the next four weekends straight for recording. A four- or five-hour half-day can usually net me three finished tracks.
