In this video, Fab records a trio in live conditions. The main challenge here is to anticipate and manage the bleed from all the instruments into all the microphones, get the best possible sound and capture the live energy and emotion of the band.
This tutorial will show you how to make fast decision, make compromises and how to get a good sound with what you have, along with basic recording concepts of guitar, vocals, drums and cello instruments.
The microphones used are Josephson microphones. This session involves a lot of swapping microphones around as Fab discovers their respective best uses for each instrument. Preamps used: Dave Hill Europa 1, Tube-Tech MP1A, Neve 1073, Realios A9031. All recorded in Pro Tools.
The song is called "The ship and the storm" by Will Knox. Will plays the guitar and sings, Simon plays the Cello and Thomas Pirot the drums.
The musicians' feelings are here, the quality of the instruments shines through and the mood is perfect for the song.

Would it make sense to put some fat acoustic absorbing panels between the players, to rid of the bleed ?

I really enjoyed this one. Maybe because it was the style of music I play, but it dealt with problems that I have face in the studio.

In theory the windscreen was built in the microphone so I did not bring one. Live and learn.

Really entertaining to watch this one!
Was a bit wondering why Fab don't uses a Windscreen to get rid of the annoying Pop-Sounds in the Vocal track?
Greetings from germany!

@Electric Eye Yes, look at the bottom of the player. You can engage the English subtitles.
