Audio Masterclass featured artist, Anna Neale, compares one of the cheapest preamps with one of the most expensive. Often correct operation is much more important than equipment selection. Recorded by Audio Masterclass in Abbey Road Studio 3.
We'll show you how to mic up a drum kit using the now-conventional 'one mic per drum, plus overheads' method. But a surprisingly good sound can be achieved with just one mic, well chosen and positioned. Featured Artist Joe Clancy was recorded by Audio Masterclass in Abbey Road Studio 3.
The classic Fairchild 660 would cost something like $15,000 on the secondhand market, if one ever came up for sale. We'll show you how to operated a compressor - hardware or plug-in - to the smallest detail, and get the warmest, punchiest sounds. Featured Artist Chilli Gold was recorded by Audio Masterclass in the control room of Abbey Road Studio 3.
