Once again I’m stoked to be at Studio A at UCSD. This time it is to record a solo album this weekend. Setup was today, headed up by engineer Joe Kucera and grad student engineers Scott Worthington and Clint Davis.
This will be an all acoustic session. We have two “areas” set up, one for micro-sounds and one for full-on playing. The microphones are wonderful, for the micro-sound area we have a Schoeps CMC 5 mic amp with a sub-cardioid capsule and a B&K 4006 (omni), both running into an Avalon M2.
For the full-on area we have a Coles 4038 ribbon mic, a Royer SF-12 stereo ribbon mic, and two Sennheiser MKH 40's, all running into a Millennia HV-3R.
The session will be recording into Pro Tools at 96/24.
