The following are time lapses showing my group and I setting up and breaking down the studio for a 2-hour recording session on two different days. Time lapse videos courtesy of Aaron Kish.
We took a weekend of record two local artists from here in Olympia. Both were guitar and vocals, so the set-up was relatively simple.
The gentleman we recorded also played harmonica, so this added in a new dynamic we were not yet used to. His session was a learning experience for us and afterward he expressed that facing the performer directly at the studio window made him kind of nervous. All in all, we got a good recording of a great original song of his satirizing the police.
The next day, we hosted a lady who sang a few hymns for us. She was guitar and vocal only, however she played a 12-string guitar.
Initially, we set her vocal mic in front of her but noticed later that she sings with her head facing the neck of her guitar. We moved the mic for her second song and were more pleased with the results.
