Watts Polyribbon At Work

Here’s a link to a project that I worked on recently. The band is called Spinster… they’re three sisters with classical music training. One lives on the west coast, one in Chattanooga, and one in Costa Rica, so they don’t get to play very often. We recorded a series of three songs this summer, they’ll eventually be posted on YouTube

We set it up as a live multitrack recording with no overdubs, so it’s very much a live performance video.  It’s also the first chance that I got to use the Polyribbon. I used it on lead vocalsfor two songs… very smooth. And just to change things up a bit, we tried it on the upright bass for one song, which gave a teriffic sound. No EQ was used on the Polyribbon signal.

Recorded on the Sound Devices 664. It was mixed using the Harrison Mixbus 32C using Universal’s EMT 140 plate reverb on the vocals. Instruments are pretty much dry. Noise reduction and mastering via Izotope RX Pro and Adobe Soundbooth.

Hopefully I can get them in the studio this summer for an album. Enjoy!
