Today we did our final preparation for the Live Sound Reinforcement Proficiency Test as a class. We set up the MH 2 and worked around every possible problem that could possibly be faced. All the best!
Today the class finished recording all of the Vocal Tracks for the Jonathan Leong Recording Sessions. In the beginning, we set up three microphones to AB them and find out which microphone suited Jonathans voice best. I was in charge of the Tracking Sheet today. Check it out!
Today the Sound Reinforcement Class learned how to set up a typical stage and control the Front Of House with the Soundcraft MH 2 Console. I think that the reason we did this today was to practice for the Live Sound Proficiency Test coming up.
Today my group, Group H had our Sound Alike Recording Session. We chose the song Video Killed The Radio Star as we felt that it had a very Raw quality to it. And we wanted to try to recreate that. Anyway, we would like to thank Asyeeqah, Gabriel, Lam and Doe for their help with Group H.
Today we had the chance to work with LASALLE’s Star Student Jonathan Leong. If you did not already know, Jonathan Leong was the Runner Up in the first season of Singapore Idol. We recorded his band today. I was really interested in the Guitar Recording Technique we used today. We used two microphones directly in front of the Fender Twin and one microphone placed in the middle of the room. Firstly, we did not really achieve a good guitar tone. After cranking the Amplifier up to 11, we managed to get a decent sounding Guitar Track.
This week, Esplanade presents Mosaic Music Festival. I really like this festival as the Esplanade brings in many bands from the region to perform. I am looking forward to watching the rest of the bands throughout the festival.
I helped Group F with their Sound Alike recording today. I played the drums for the track Wonderwall. Overall, I felt happy with a few of the drum takes I managed to record. Hopefully everything goes smoothly with their Sound Alike and I look forward to starting on my Groups’ session. We will be doing the song Video Killed The Radio Star. Watch This Space!
We started recording the final Guitar tracks with Rick today. Here is a picture of the cool guitar he brought in to record with today.
We continued with Rick Smith’s Jazz Recording today. We used the whole session today to track Guitar. Check it out!
