Weird acoustic guitar tuning tip: If your recording an acoustic guitar with no electronics or pickups in it etc and you need to tune, use a pair of headphones and plug those into a guitar tuner whilst placed around the acoustic. The headphones pick up the vibrations and you can tune it perfectly, just asif it was plugged into the tuner 👌🤙 photo from @kennedysian session
There’s not too much that hasn’t changed over the years in my mixing template or at least varies from time to time except one thing; there’s probably not a single mix I did without a nice old plate on the vocals. Since the day I learned about pre delay and how to keep the vocals in the front, I’m in love with these vintage, long reverb sounds.
No matter if I use my outboard Lexicons, the 480 plugin or Slate‘s VSC... combine it with a slapback delay and you’re good to go!
Well, at least that’s my two cents! So what about you? Are you a reverb or delay guy? ✌🏻😊
One of the final sessions tracking vocals for the @lobotomist_uk album ‘Into The Raid’ it’s sounding absolutely ridiculous, huge, 3D, sprawling, heavy... and I haven’t even started the final mix yet... this is one to watch out for 👀

Feels amazing starting a fresh year with this beaut, the sE Gemini II. Paired with the Neve 1073 or the Focusrite ISA 430mkII, this mic is just ridiculous for everything. I’m lucky to own and use this gear everyday 💙
