Matthew came and recorded the pedal steel for Great Norths album. Although pictured is my Vox AC15 we used the speaker from its cabinet with the Princeton as the amp (out of shot) sounded beautiful. I'm leaning more towards the Arabella for the pedal steel sounds, has a bit more high end clarity that the pedal steel requires.
Some more Late Night Poets recording the other week. We recorded another 3 songs. One of the songs I previously recorded with them was voted number 1 on theaudience.co.nz unreleased chart, winning them $10,000 to make a video for it.

Over the past few weeks quite a bit has been happening on Great Norths album, Acoustic guitars have been recorded, Piano, Bass and we've started Vocals and Electric guitar. Lots of recording, very little blogging. I've been enjoying my latest purchase; the Royer R121's. They're used as Overheads, Acoustic Mic's, Piano mics (behind the piano) and as a Guitar amp mic so far and I'm sure plenty of other things to come.
Pedal Steel to record on Friday and more Vocals before Christmas.

I recently tracked some drums and a few guitars and then mixed and mastered some B-Sides for Clap Clap Riot. Their new stuff is really great, you should check them out.
Also new and great are a couple of Calves that were born out here the other week, there has been a mandatory visit for almost everyone recording to go and pet them at the moment. They're so cute!
