Track recorded in the gallery using my BoardWeevil and amplified kit.

20150312_setup01

Still working on amplified drums and electronics. Settings as before, I record a drum track then electronics. I load the two tracks into Audacity. The electronics track is spot on, input on the Peavey bass amp set at 4, just below 1/2 full gain.

This time the electronics track is longer than the drum track, by about 5min. Again the electronics sounds loud in relation to the percussion, so I back it off -12db. The drum track is fine volume-wise. I notice that the bass drum is almost exclusively on the left channel and the delay towards the right. The right is not quite as loud, I pan the stereo 10% right.

Here’s the mix –

Track recorded in the gallery using my BoardWeevil and amplified kit.

Working on amplified percussion, sorting out the settings for recording – amplitude 1/3 to 1/2, treble full on, and delay amplitude set around 1/4.

I record two separate tracks drums then electronics. BoardWeevil thru the Peavey bass amp, sounds awesome!

I load both tracks into Audacity. The drum track is longer than the electronics track, by about 10min. So I center the electronics track, normalize, and listen. The electronics track sounds louder so I back it off -15db and compress the drum track. I still have unaccompanied percussion at the beginning and end. I slow down the first 5min of the electronics track ten times and mix it in at -20db.

Here is the resulting mix –
