One of the many and more to come webcast with Bob Weir. Today I actually finished engineering and mixing the Shana Morrison and Jason Crosby show.
Fun day at TRI Studios. Recorded some cool covers and a few originals with Dhani Harrison and Perry Farrell.
Our largest show to date. Seven guitars, two basses, drums, piano, organ, clavinet and 5 vocals met the stage for a amazing performance in honor of Jerry Garcias’s 70th birthday. The Show featured Phish’s Mike Gordon, Vampire Weekend’s Chris Tomson, Grateful Dead vocalist Donna Jean Godchaux, Furthur’s Joe Russo and Jeff Chimenti, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals’ Neal Casal, the Hold Steady’s Craig Finn and Tad Kubler and the Yellowbirds’ Sam Cohen and Josh Kaufman, as well as Jim Lauderdale, Cass McCombs, Jonathan Wilson and Harper Simon. Actor Luke Wilson hosted the event.
More great tunes from Lukas Nelson. Here’s a link to one of 40 songs recorded and mixed by me at TRI. RCA 77dx and Telfunken 260 on the recording. API Vision Console. Enjoy.
Possibly our best show to date. The very talented band “The National” and Bob Weir rehearsed for two days prior to the show to learn each others material. Both video and audio teams worked very hard to bring a solid production to the audience of Yahoo.com. Over 2.5 million views and counting have seen the performance. Myself and Brad Dollar engineered the show. Being this was a larger set-up we used more dynamic vocals microphones and stayed away from large caps to prevent excessive bleed. Bob will in almost every scenario be using a Telefunken C12 for vocals. We love this on his vocals and being a studio environment we can get away with it. 409 and royer 121 on Weir’s guitar. Tele 251 on piano. Tele 260 on overheads on drums. Most traditional choices on rest of instrumentation. Shure and senheiser for drums and guitar amps. The broadcast was mixed from Ratdogs very own Mike Mcginn. Mixed with our API vision console, 2500 and Aurora lynx converter before reaching the viewers. A outstanding mix and performance from the staff at TRI.
Here’s a great pic Anne Ramsey Cutler took of myself an Mike Fraser at TRI Studios on the API Vision console. Mike mixed the show, I engineered and mixed Q & A and outro segments.
