Default Making demos on Digi 001

The band Disturbed had a contest where they personally picked a local band to open a concert in like 10 cities on their Music As a Weapon Tour. I submitted the demos I recorded and produced for my band Deconstruct, and we won for the San Francisco area show. So we will be opening for Disturbed, Taproot and Chevelle on April 19, 2003 at the San Jose Event Center

If you want to hear my Digi 001 demos go to DECONSTRUCT MP3s Criticism or comments about the production are appreciated! Thanks

Hey, that stuff's really good. What did you use to record that? Do you have a quick rundown of your 'stuff'?

Good work. And congratulations!

Thanks for the compliments, I worked my ass off on these songs.

I don't have very much gear.

The drums were recorded with the most obvious basic stuff - D112 on kick, SM 57s on snare and toms, cheap ass oktava condensers (i think 319 is the model) and a TLM 103 was used for a mono rm mike. Basic. I do edit all noise out of the toms so the only on the tom tracks are the fills.

The signal chain of how I record is also very basic - I have a two channel Vintech 1272 pre that I run the most important **** into when I can. So when tracking, I run the most important stuff through them. E.g., when doing drums - I run kick and snare through there. (I think overheads are very important too, but I don't have a good pre for em). I avoid eqing to tape whenever possible - so no eq on k or sn No comp to tape on drums either. (when I say tape I mean computer no analog tape was used)

The next part of the chain is the converter ADI PRO 8 AD/DA The converter makes a huge difference, I listen to old stuff I did with just digi 001 and there are clicks and pops all over it. The ADI PRO 8 also has a clock so everything is clocked to that.

Everything else is simple too. Rhythm guitars are Les Paul to Mesa Dual Rectifier with Marshall 4/12 to Vintech to ADI to Pro Tools No eq or comp

Bass was direct with probably some eqing done on Mackie board (I have a 32/8 that I picked up for a grand with the meter bridge)

Vocals went from Neumann TLM 103 to Vintech to ****** ass presonus blue max compressor (that I hate but was all I had - I got a dbx 160A at the very end of recording) to computer. no eq. The comp to tape is minimal, I just don't want clipping. Oh yeah the same sad ass compressor was used on bass.

I was thinking about getting the ADI 8, either that or the ISA 428.

Cheers for the info.

Did you record basic tracks first, then overdub?

Did the band play to a click track. You get a fantastic sound.

So everything but the kick and snare goes through the Mackie 32/8 for the mic pre's before going to the converter? I really dug that drum sound.
