This is a demonstration of a parallel high-shelf eq/filter that I designed after finding out about the Kush Audio Clariphonic. I’m going to make an API500 module from that and insert it on my main/center microphone. Check out the video, but stay tuned for schematics on this blog later on.
In the video below I present the cymbal plate reverb I explained in a previous post and show/explain the DIY piezo preamp a little (schematics here). Enjoy and leave your comments here or right on the video.
Lately I’ve been craving for more natural or real-world production methods in my music. What I mean by that is something like physical production. Plate or spring reverbs are one example: letting phenomena of the physical world influence recordings and tracks.
Since a few months ago I enjoy recording instruments directly to tape. Especially drums. I mix them down with a simple mixer and then go back and forth between playing and listening until I like the settings and then record a “tape” of about 20-30 minutes.
