I recorded the above clip using my phone. I was pretty happy with the recording quality, although as always, not a true representation of what it sounded like in the room, but at least it is relatively clear.
Tundrel where the local support for the Caligula’s Horse and Chaos Divine national tour. I was happy enough with the sound that night, as I managed to give the band a full sound check. That always helps. Also, the touring bands had brought their own console, which was nice, but really, I just tried to keep it as simple as possible. Tundrel are actually relatively easy to mix, being that they play fairly clean music.
After mixing these guys, Chaos Divine asked me to mix their set, even though the touring Sound Technician was meant to do it. A nice stroke of the ego no doubt, but I think it actually had more to do with Chaos Divine saving some money on production costs.
