EQ and Compression Acoustic Songwriter Track

I’m using EQ and Compression on this Singer/Songwriter Track to clean up the mix.

Recording/Mixing Acoustic Guitar

I’m recording a stereo acoustic guitar using only one microphone! This technique provides a huge stereo spread in your mix with 2 tracks hard panned Left and Right! I use many techniques for recording acoustic instruments but this is still one of my favorite ways to record an acoustic guitar!

Creating Lead Guitar Harmony

In this video I’m creating a lead guitar harmony part using flex pitch in Logic Pro X. The pitch of each note is transposed up a third. I started with a minor third and if that note fell outside of my key then I moved it up a major third. A delay plugin was use to simulate a second guitar played in a different take. Please give me your thought. Thanks for watching. Please comment and subscribe. Enjoy!

Recording Acoustic Guitar and Drums

In this video I’m recording a Taylor acoustic guitar and tracking live drums. The acoustic guitar was mic’d with a Rode NT1A. The acoustic track was recorded a second time with the guitar cords played in a different position (barre chords verses open chords) and panned hard left and right. This gave the guitar a bigger wider sound. I’m using Pro Tools 12 for the recording with 8 mics on the drum kit. Mostly SM57s and a pair of Rode NT1A for the drum overheads. No software instruments or midi used in the recording other than a click track. In addition to the Taylor acoustic, I used an American Standard Telecaster to record a rhythm and lead part. A fender Deluxe Reverb Amp was mic’d with a Sure SM57. Minimum processing. Using EQ and compression on most tracks. Plate reverb on the snare drum and delay on the vocals.
