Welcome or Welcome Back!

This is a blog created/kept unkempt by the band A Relative Term to express the process of recording their next full length album. They will poke each other in the eyes, whack each other's noses, butt heads repeatedly, and run in circles on the floor for your enjoyment.

Vocal Tracking

The great green room where the tracks hit the hard-drive 
and the sunlight hits the ponytail.

Mic experimentation- Beyer M500

We got multiple vocal takes of most of the songs we have recorded already.  Operating almost exclusively in the Mark directed 'sweet spot' of Labor Day afternoon, the two of us managed to find a good combination of mics (Neumann 103 and Blue Mouse) for the vocal sound.  The more I listen to these tracks, the better I think they sound.  Mark noticed some audible buzzing from a bass track that might need replacing but all in all, things are shaping up.

Tomorrow night we're in Rochester at the Bug Jar if you're over that way and feel like hearing some songs.  We've got about six planned for the gig including a new one 'To Let Go' found its way into the list and I'm looking forward to playing that one live for the first time.

See you there?
