150 Mass Ave, Media Center
Although the quality of today's virtual horn libraries is very high, recording horn players live can be a rewarding way to achieve natural sounding horn parts. In this workshop, Learning Center Trainers Blair Pershyn and Sohta Tsuchiya recorded solo instruments and small horn ensembles with methods applicable to working in contemporary styles. We looked at some of the basic equipment needed to record in both project studios and at remote locations and discussed microphones and miking techniques.
• Pro Tools session setup & prep
• Required equipment
• Microphone selection & placement
• Mono & stereo recording
