Classic country recording

Postby dinhhanh » Wed Sep 16, 2015 4:44 am

Hello all!
I have been asked to record a couple songs by a band and they play classic country (im a metal head so this is going to be interesting!) I have no experience recording this style but this is what I have to work with
Gear: 4 SM57's, 1 shure PG kick mic, 1 Behringer LDC, 2 Tascam LDC, 1 Behringer B5, 1 MXL LDC. 1 Behringer tube preamp (2 channel) 1 dbx compressor (2 channel), and my fostex vf160 (don't feel like taking my interface rack apart since I am recording them at their place). nhac chuong mien phi

Musicians. 1 bassist with amp, 1 steel guitar player, 1 drummer, 1 lead guitar/vocalist, and 1 rhythm guitar. All guitars are electric acoustic.

Idea: Drummer uses a small kit and I was thinking 1 LDC slightly over the kick drum facing the snare in a cardioid pattern. Direct input the bass and the steel guitar player since he uses an amp (if not large diaphram condensor?) the guitars I will put a SM57 on the amps and they all do vocals and they want to record "live" so I was going to take a feed off the PA mixer. I was then going to do one room mic.

Any suggestions?
