Weekend of Aug 4th

Posted on August 05, 2006 by D' MacKinnon

Spent last night in the studio with a certain young lad. We recorded some vocal overdubs that turned out rather nicely, especially after a little bit of studio experimentation. Two tracks completely recorded and mixed, hopefully next Friday will yield a third.
On Thursday I had Mad Wax over and we finished a track that we had started in our previous session. Next week we’ll clean up the mix a bit and start a new track. Pretty hopping club tunes.
I think the cable jack on one of my guitars needs to be fixed, the connection kept shorting out last night. I opened it up today and tightened some things, hopefully that fixes it because I’d rather not have to replace the jack on this one already.
After our little session I went out for a few drinks, dropped by ol’ Netherworld to say hi to everyone. Despite a slight hangover today from the well rums I was able to record some piano for a trip-hop style tune I’ve been working on. The piano sound itself turned out a bit dark, probably because the strings and hammers on it are old so I threw a little EQ on the track to brighten it up. I had picked up this piano originally from the CU music conservatory, it dates back to the 1920’s I believe. It’s got a sticky key here and there and should probably be tuned again but it’s nice havinig a real piano around. I really can’t stand the sound of fake piano modules in recordings.
