For the song 'Geef Een Glimlach', a local school wanted me to do the recording, arranging, mixing and mastering. It was the first time I recorded a group of children in a recording studio. They were about 40. Since there aren't 40 headphones available in the studio (are there studios with that amount of headphones?), and since I did not have the time to record them one by one, I tried another approach. I put the group in the largest room of the studio, and put the part of the track on which they had to sing in a loop, through monitor speakers in the room. We rehearsed until the timing and tone were right, and then I switched off the monitors, let the group continue to sing while recording. After that, I took the best 6 singers and recorded them apart.
I used to struggle quite a bit with creating decent bass sounds, especially on bass guitar or contrabas tracks.
And then I discoverd the Little Labs 'Voice Of God' UAD plugin. This plugin is quite amazing. You just insert it on the bass track and even with the default 40Hz setting, it immediately adds a beautiful depth to the bass sound.
