We're starting work on the third Great North album, slightly different process this time. In the past we've done most of the tracks live. Last time recording Vocals, Acoustic guitar, Bass and Drums live for almost all of the songs. This time we're tracking to a click and have just finished the main part of the drums to a pre recorded acoustic and vocal guide. Next up either Acoustic guitar or bass... or anything really!
With the addition of 3 mics and a couple of new preamps my drum tracking setup has become a lot more flexible. For Great Norths drums I went with Royer R121's as overheads. RE20 in the kick and the Nady ribbon mic as a kick out mic. I also put the KM184's back in the room as ORTIF room mics.
