Here is an Explainer Video we made for Damien Gerard Studios. They already had over 30 mins worth of footage recorded including the band Eugene tracking a live take. What we did was interview their chief engineer Russell Pilling for the voice-over as we watched the footage (Pictured below). We then took that back to our studio and edited the footage, the voice over and music from the band together, added some credits to end up with the video below.
In this video, Chief Engineer at Damien Gerard Recording Studios Sydney – Russell Pilling – takes you step by step through his entire process for setting up a live recording session. He shows you what mics he uses on each instrument, proper mic placement and signal paths.
