"Worth Nothing" by Aaron Saloman

This song was another track where basics were cut in a studio, and overdubs done on an MBox. For the lo-fi guitar sound of the intro, we plugged into a tiny, broken-looking guitar amp in the studio, and turned the volume up all the way. It sounded terrible, just as we hoped....

This song was another track where basics were cut in a studio, and overdubs done on an MBox. For the lo-fi guitar sound of the intro, we plugged into a tiny, broken-looking guitar amp in the studio, and turned the volume up all the way. It sounded terrible, just as we hoped.

Mics on the guitars were SM57's, AKG C3000's, RE-20's, and SM81's. Vocal mic was a RODE NT2000.

I usually change the guitar, amp, or mic for each layer when recording this many tracks of guitars. It leaves less to do in the mix in terms of defining a space for each instrument if they already sound a bit different to begin with.

You'll notice some percussion in there too - that was all tracked with the AKG C3000.

Basics engineered by Steve Nichols, overdubs engineered by Aaron Saloman. Mixed by Steve Nichols, mastered by Aaron Saloman. Mixed on an SSL G-series.
