Day One – Storybook

For MP-385(Advanced Recording Techniques) and MP-320 (Creative Production Projects), an engineering student collaborates with a producing student and creates a single. For this recording, I was an engineer, and worked on Storybook’s single called “Day One”. I am not very familiar with rock, but I loved working with Jacob and his band!

These were microphones for drums! I usually go with minimal mic setup but rock was something that I was not too familiar with so I wanted more choices…

57 on snare top and 121 on the bottom. They are like peanut butter and jelly!

M149s for overheads. I put 12dB pads on them because the drummer was hitting the cymbals as hard as he could! He was great though. He broke one of his crashes…

This is just a short clip during the session.

Overall, it was an amazing experience! I enjoyed working with Jacob (producer) a lot and the whole band. I definitely learned a lot and it’s always worth doing overnight sessions with great musicians.
