Hey guys, very glad to find and register in the forum!
I was wondering if you could give me some tips on mixing my band.
We recorded four songs in a living room while being filmed on camera. We are a six piece band (Singer, 2 gtrs, drums, bass and keys/piano -according to the song-).
Drums were recorded with an XY, an MD421 on the kick, a 57 on the snare, a 57 for the floor tom and a 2020 in front of the high tom which adds a bit of lows to the kick while taking the high tom as well; guitars had an SM58 each, Beta57 for the vocals, DI for bass, keys through line, piano had an AT 4050 with a figure of eight pattern (with a maybe interesting drum spill all over it), and an AT2020 room mic pointing directly towards a window.
Also, no headphones. There were two monitors in the room.
The idea is to mix under the premise of it sounding as you see it, a recording done in a living room, with a really compressed room; as opposed to it sounding like a studio recording
What do you think?
