New Recording! (Or, What Happens When You’re Invited to try a $3,000 Vocal Microphone)

Pink Princess (from the Backyard)

Was super excited to be invited into Big Gorilla Studios in Wailuku last night for some Winter Solstice recording fun! Didn’t have much prepared because of the last-minute invite, so when the audio team busted out a really intimate vocal mic and great acoustic guitar mic, I decided to go to an old favorite by Neil Young.

Both tracks (vocals and guitar) recorded live/simultaneously. Guitar is my precious Takamine 12-string. I’ll find out what the microphones were for you audio nerds out there. (There was a LOT of audio nerd talk going on at Big Gorilla last night, so something tells me these were some fancy mics. I was told the vocal mic alone was worth at least $3,000!!!)

This recording is my holiday gift to you all: a gentle to reminder to not be brought down, no matter how ugly it gets. You will come around.

Song originally recorded by Neil Young.
