John and Luke are using their Easter break to record another local band. This time it’s Prisms with their intricate and complex sound; think Foals or Vampire Weekend. They chose to record barefoot guitarist, Paul, in the live room using a combination of a close mic (SM57) on his amp’s loudspeaker grille and a room mic (C414). As I popped my head into the control room to have another listen they were busy setting up the U87 in the dead room for vocals. The band are all very good players and are well rehearsed and, as John and Luke’s recording is sounding particularly good, I’m really looking forward to posting one of the tracks up here soon.
