Great North Piano Tracking
We moved the piano to my room successfully. Woo!
It actually sounds pretty good, its not perfectly in tune which actually really suits the almost honky tonk piano sound we want with Great North, we were looking at hiring spaces with grand pianos etc to record at but this turned out better than we expected.
In keeping with the semi lo-fi I opted for beta57's on the piano instead of condensers or anything more delicate (although I stuck the Kiwi up for detail/if it ends up being in mono) they ended up sounding really great (if they didn't I would've changed them!)
We have more things to do tomorrow; drums, piano, harmonica, guitar, group ooo's. Its almost all tracked though, which is exciting.
