deffinitely close mic kick and snare, that way if it sounds shit you can always use triggers. The stereo mic on OH position should pickup up a well tuned kit well

A big problem can be loud cymbals with heavy hitters - they just drown out the drums, so maybe have a word about technique if you can without getting twatted by the grunt on drums (assuming he's your average drummer )

any advice to get rid of buzz/hum from a vocal track?
"record it again, but better" doesn't help, because I'm unable to do that at the moment

Not really. You could try a specific noise reduction plugin or a parametric eq.
There's not that much you can do to rescue it if it's bad.

there are some great plug-ins but if it's too bad, there's not a lot you can do. You're welcome to send it over and i'll give it a go. PM for my email address

Zoom H2N just came in (unfortunately 1 day late for band rehearsal); quick sound test sounded awesome. Will try to record some more today and upload.

edit: that was easy!



Straight from the H2N

Very nice. Very full sounding and had my room shaking. Nice.

Did you have it recording up on the amp? Glad to see the mammoth is treating you well.

Yup, it was a bit distant from it as I wanted to hear what it'd sound like with about a metre of room. You can hear some of my string plucking recorded too.

The mammoth is doing mostly that really well; haven't found the need to use it for general fuzz because the bass big muff is covering the rest. It's probably leaving my board when we stop covering TIRO.

Can understand that. I've um... acquired two of them and I just cannot use figure out when to use them so I've sold them on. It's really strange that despite having four knobs, there's only so many useful sounds on it. The useful ones are just difficult to fit in a lot of songs and the rest just sound like ass. The BMP just works better musically. Maybe the mammoth with a blend would work nicer.

I could hear the plucks but wasn't sure if it was from the amp or you. That's a good sound from a metre out.

thanks for the offers/suggestions, but I've managed to get a decent sound using a Gate and an EQ

Not really going to have time to experiment as it's essentially a field recording in a shitty rehearsal studio and we're on the clock. The mics will be crappy dynamics, if that makes any difference!
Went with close on kick and snare (fake 58 and 57, respectively) and it came out like this:




It was basically the shittest kit ever and my drummer forgot to bring his snare/cymbals so we were using the house stuff but I'm quite pleased with my turd polishing.

Hey Kittentab! I just got Ableton and now I'm trying to record stuff from my bass but there is a HUGE latency that I honestly don't know how to get rid of. I mean, there were a few options in the main controls but they did not get rid of it to the point where I was content and they lowered the sound quality to literal white noise. Help?
edit; nvm fixed it. c:

Gentlemen.

What is the best method to remove the single coil hum from a distorted guitar track? Obviously you can't hear it while playing, but for something that has some short parts where the strings are muted.

Specifically:



Starts around seven seconds in. That's actually with humbuckers, but I'm redoing it with single coils (P90s for authenticity...), and it's much more noticeable.

There are two options that I'm aware of. Either capturing a print of the hum, and using noise reduction (which doesn't work as well as I'd like) or simply silencing the hum completely (a lot more time consuming, and potentially inconsistent)

Isn't there a noise filter of some sort on the recording program? At least in Audacity I think.

Otherwise, probably a noise gate or something I'd suggest, though thats external

You could gate it, use a vst with look forward if you do. Personally, I've always just gone in and edited the hum out. If you want the best results, take the time and do it right.
