Last Friday, TMS Recording Arts students had an in-house session with the jazz band, doing a live recording of the songs featured at last week's winter performance.
Under the guidance of Director Jimmy Sage, students put separate microphones on each instrument (some instruments required multiple microphones!) and ran each of these to a separate channel in our ProTools software. Set up took about 2 hours, then checking each input took about another hour. Finally, playing the six songs multiple takes took another couple of hours. It was a long day, but they recorded some great music!
The jazz band and recording arts students will record the second half of their album this Spring!
Here we have the recording desk with the computer, mic preamps and digital converters:
